Terry Hungerford

June 28, 1947 — February 20, 2019

“I have to say that I have had a Wonderful life, although a little too short.”

“I have had the greatest wife any man could ask for, with my wife Andellyn.”

“I have had the best Kids, Grand Kids and Great Grand Kids and Dogs any man could ever wish for.”

“I have had the very best friends anyone can imagine, always being there for me in times of need.”

“I have been fortunate to play and tour with some of the best musicians in the Country.”

“I Have Been A Lucky Man!”

Terry lived life to the fullest as a bass player and singer having gone on the road with numerous bands including his own at an early age. He was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. He moved to the Santa Cruz mountains in the late 60’s then moved back to Fort Worth in the early 70’s after inheriting a bar from his uncle he named the Space Palace. After a year he sold and moved back to Santa Cruz County and after a while of not having a hit record he went to work for Pacific Bell Telephone and retired after 25 years of service. During this time he stilled played in bands locally and honed his Barbeque skills competing all over California winning awards for his ribs, tri tip and BBQ sauce. Once he retired from AT&T he opened his own BBQ Joint “Hungerford’s Finest Award Winning BBQ Ribs” in Watsonville with live blues bands performing on the weekends for 5 years.

“We didn’t make any money but we sure did have a good time.”
