Mr. James "Terry" Hurley Obituary

Mr. James "Terry" Hurley, age 65, of Summerville, GA, died Wednesday, January 10, 2024, at Atrium Health Floyd due to complications received in an accident on January 3, 2024.

Mr. Hurley was born July 16, 1958, son of the late James William Hurley and Mary Nell Durham Hurley.  He grew up working on the family farm and continued to live there until his passing.  He married Miss Donna Collette on June 26, 1982, and they have been happily married for 41 years.

In the most recent years, he worked in the food industry and had retired from Winshape in 2020.  He was an active member of Perennial Springs Baptist Church where he currently served as Choir Director.  Anyone that knew Terry knew his outgoing and caring personality.  He never met a stranger.  He was an Ordained Minister who was never ashamed to tell anyone about his Lord and Savior or that he was ready to go to Heaven.  Terry enjoyed doing carpentry and various projects.  He was proud of his daughters and their accomplishments, but his grandkids were his true pride and joy.  Being a “D-Boy” is what he loved the most.  He lived a long, fulfilling life, and his family can take comfort in knowing anyone who knew him will be forever touched by knowing him and the legacy he has left behind.  His family can rejoice in knowing he is at rest with the Lord. 

In addition to his parents, Mr. Hurley was preceded in death by a grandchild, Baby Reed; as well as several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Survivors include his wife of over 41 years, Donna Collette Hurley; daughters, Miranda (Jacob) Reed, and Haven (Chris) Temple; grandchildren, Jeremiah and Amelia Reed, and Gracie Temple; brother, Greg (Kim) Hurley; special cousin, Susan Brooks; mother-in-law, Shirley Collette; brother-in-law, Timothy (Robin) Collette; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Funeral services for Mr. Hurley will be held at 2:00 P.M. Saturday, January 13, 2024, from the Mason Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Mike Smith and Mr. Jacob Reed officiating.  Interment will follow in Perennial Springs Baptist Church Cemetery.  Active pallbearers will be Jacob Reed, Chris Temple, Greg Hurley, Garrett Hurley, Chad Teems, and Joey Brewster.  Honorary pallbearers will be the members of Perennial Springs Baptist Church.

Visitation will be Saturday from 12:00 noon until the service hour at the funeral home.
