Obituary

Robert Terry Bybee (“Terry”) passed away peacefully early Tuesday morning, June 15, 2021, surrounded by his family.  He will be missed by all who knew him.

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Terry Bybee, age 84, of Dallas, Texas will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 24, 2021, at Lovers Lane United Methodist Church in The Shipp Chapel (9200 Inwood Rd., Dallas, Texas).

Terry was born December 3, 1936, in Dallas, Texas.  He was preceded in death by his parents Joe & Oleva Bybee and is survived by his wife of 62 years Carol Bybee, his sister Sharon Bybee, his son & his wife Bob & Sally Bybee, their children Haley and Ashley Bybee, his daughter and her husband Dianna & Marty Norman, their children Laura Norman, Sarah Norman, Richard Norman and his wife Ellen Waldrop and their daughter Winnie.

Terry was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. He graduated from Highland Park High School in 1955 where he played varsity baseball and made many lifelong friends.  In 1960 Terry graduated from SMU with a degree in electrical engineering—and more importantly a wife and son.  He met and fell in love with Carol while at SMU.  They were married June 20, 1959, and their first child was born June 26, 1960.  He was also an active member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity.

After graduating from SMU, Terry worked at Bell Helicopter.  In 1964, he began a new job at LTV, where he eventually found his passion for computers as the electronic era began.  He loved gadgets of any kind and computers became one of his favorites. He retired in 2011 at the age of 75.

Terry attended Lovers Lane United Methodist Church since childhood and remained a member until his death.  He and his wife contributed their time to the church in many ways over the years.  They worked with the youth group and were founding members of the Agape Sunday School Class.  He drove seniors to and from church, and for many years organized the volunteers who collected and recorded the Sunday offertory. He was a happy volunteer, eager to help out.

As a father, he showed his love by action.  Never missing events or activities, he was always up for taking family trips involving lots of driving, even with the never-ending echo of, “Don’t touch me, stay on your side!” coming from the back of the station wagon.  Terry never complained about all of the weekends spent at long hot swim meets and baseball games as he cheered on his children. He was even happy to do family outings to the mall to window shop.  He loved just being with his family. Terry was also an avid tennis player. When he was not busy with his family, he enjoyed playing tennis at Chapel Downs Community Center and Brookhaven Country Club.

In later years, through the Lovers Lane Travel Ministry, Carol and Terry had many great adventures seeing the world.  One of the most memorable experiences was being in Japan during the 2011 earthquake.  Thankfully, their group made it out safely!  They also shared their love of travel with their grandkids, taking each one on a special High School Senior trip, making lifelong memories for the grandkids to carry with them.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a gift to the Church Organ Fund at Lovers Lane United Methodist Church in Terry’s memory.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
