Charles Unrein Obituary

Charles Terrence Unrein obituary Charles Terrence “Terry” Unrein, 64, passed away on Thursday, 28 September, at his home in Roxboro, North Carolina. Terry was born in Topeka, Kansas, on 11 November 1958 to Marylee Hockett and Billy Bryant. He was immediately adopted and lovingly raised by Louis and Louise Unrein of Topeka. Terry attended Topeka West and then Royal Valley High School after his family moved to Mayetta. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy, where he served on board a supply ship in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Following Navy service he returned to Topeka, then moved to Houston, TX. He married Barbara Barry on 1 October, 1983, and they enjoyed many years together in Texas before finally settling in Cary, NC, in 2006. He was preceded in death by his birth and adopted parents, a sister, Mary Monica Unrein, and a brother, Benjamin T. “Ted” Unrein, and his former wife Barbara, who passed away in 2011. He is survived by two brothers, Thad and Tim, a son, Charles Michael Unrein, and his most recent wife Barbara Stewart, who he married in 2013. Terry left behind a host of other family members that he found while doing research to find his birth parents. He was extremely close to Jeanette Dow, his ½ sister on his mother’s side and Linda Phillips on his dad’s side. Terry was extremely fond of his special grandchildren in love, Natalia and Josiah Martinez, Kaylee Martin-Madrid, and Jona Huizar, and many nieces, nephews, grand nieces and grand nephews. A gifted artist, he worked for a number of years in publishing, tattooing, and small-scale film production, and also served as a fencing armorer, ensuring safety equipment was in proper condition for fencing tournaments. Terry had a longstanding love of automobiles and enjoyed driving and maintaining the several cars he owned. He was also a member of the Roxboro Moose Lodge. His remains will be cremated and plans are for them to be scattered on the Tail of the Dragon, of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. A small memorial service is planned for a later date at the Roxboro Moose Lodge.
