Bangart, Terry (12 July 1954 - 9 Dec. 2008)

Terry "T.B." Bangart, 54, of Cody, Wyo., and formerly of Rozellville, died Dec. 9, 2008, at home with his wife Holly and son Bill by his side after a two-year battle with cancer.

He was born in Marshfield on July 12, 1954, to Tony and Mercedes Bangart. In 1977, he moved to Cody.

Terry's passion was the hills. He loved hunting, especially sheep hunting.

He vowed one day he would be the best guide in the hills, and in 2007, he received the G.C.F. Dalziel Outstanding Guide of the Year Award in Salt Lake City. He was the first guide in the lower 48 states to receive the award.

That same year he fought chemotherapy in between hunts, which included his 100th ram. Terry's hunter, John Fantos, successfully shot a Pope and Young ram with a bow.

Terry would have up to a 10-day hunt, come out and do chemo, and go out on the next hunt. He made it to 104 rams that year.

If Terry wasn't hunting, he would be waiting for ice to form on the lakes. He loved to ice fish.

He caught a 12.5-pound walleye through the ice, which he mounted on the wall in his "dog house." This was a special room he built for all his treasures. Included were his bighorn sheep he shot with a bow, and elk, deer, mountain lion, moose and a stag he killed in Argentina with his close friend and boss "Grizz" Turner. It was a trip he would never forget.

Before Terry became sick, he worked as a heavy equipment operator and mechanic. He also worked oil rigs, construction and plumbing. His brand was the Lazy T.B.

Terry married Holly on Dec. 24, 1982. They had sons Bill and Jake. He also had boys Ray "Butch" and Roy from a previous marriage.

He was a member of the Eagles, Elks, FNAWS and Elk Foundation.

He will always be loved and missed.

Terry is survived by his wife, sons Bill, Butch and Roy, sisters Monica (Norm) Wolf, Marilyn (Roy) Brumbaugh, Jane (Dennis) Pankratz, Joanne (Bob) Aschebrock, Darlene (Jan) Harmon and Sister Antoinette, brothers Jim (Jenny), Don (Patti), Charlie (Judy) and Tom, special nephew Joe (Deb) Wolf and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his son, Jake, parents and sister, Patsy.

Memorial services will be 11 a.m. Feb. 7, 2009, at the Eagles Lodge in Cody, Wyo. Lunch will be served afterward.

God saw him sitting there and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around him and whispered "Come to Me."

With tearful eyes we watched him suffer, and saw him fade away. And though we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us... He only takes the best.
