Terry Cochran

Terry L. Cochran, 72, of Newark, Ohio, passed away Tuesday evening, January 4, 2022 after his courageous six-and-a-half-year battle with cancer. Born November 6, 1949 in Newark he was a son of the late Fred and Ruth Cochran and was a 1968 graduate of Newark High School. Following high school, he immediately enlisted in the United States Army and proudly served our country at home and abroad for more than a decade. He then worked as a logistics specialist with Defense Supply Center of Columbus for nearly 40 years. Terry was incredibly proud of the role he played in making sure America’s warfighters had the supplies needed to complete their missions. Surviving is his loving wife of nearly 48 years, Linda (Fairall) Cochran whom he married February 27, 1974. Together they went on to have two children, Molly (James ) Kurtz of Hanover and Patty (Matt) Keiler of Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Also surviving are his grandchildren, Zachary and Page Fowler and Ava and Brooke Keiler; his brothers, David, Kevin and Jeff and several nieces and nephews. Terry and Linda traveled to all 50 states and he loved to spend time with his grandchildren (and grandpets). He was rarely spotted not wearing either patriotic or Ohio State Buckeyes’ gear. Calling hours will be 4pm to 7pm Friday, January 7, 2022 at the Frazeysburg Chapel of Vensil & Chute Funeral Home, 110 West Third Street. Funeral services will be 11:00am Saturday, January 8, 2022 at the funeral home with Chaplain Corey Campbell officiating. Burial will be in Frazeysburg Cemetery.
