June 13, 1957 – August 20, 2014

Mark Allen Terry, affectionately known as “Maypo” or “Uncle Mark” to most, was born on June 13, 1957 in Jersey City, New Jersey to Dorothy Terry and Oliver Todd. During his years of adolescence, he met and would later marry his teenage and high school love Estelle Terry. After graduating from Dickinson High School at 18, he enlisted in the United States Navy. In the four years of service to his country, he was an avid prominent member of the Navy basketball teams and also received recognition for being the first African American male in charge of running the postal service aboard the USS Hector.

After relocating to numerous places within California, “Maypo” settled in San Diego, California. During Mark’s and Estelle’s forty years of marriage they both would raise their family in the city of El Cajon, California. While living in El Cajon, he worked as a Knife Machinist at Buck Knives for twenty years and after the closing and relocation of Buck Knives he later found a home working at Sycuan Casino as a beloved member of the Drop Team for the past eight years, where he would often received praise and notoriety of being such a valued employee.

In his spare time, Mark could be found spending his time with his children and grandchildren, attending sporting events, cheering on his beloved Los Angeles Lakers and Pittsburgh Steelers, mastering his culinary skills on the grill, or relaxing around the house.

“Uncle Mark” to many was a fun loving man. He was a man of many, many, many words, who always gave his heartfelt expressions to those he cared about, and considered everyone his family. He had a smile that would light up the darkest room and felt it was extremely important to share his love for God to anyone he encountered.

Mark was preceded in death by his beloved mother Dorothy Terry, father Oliver Todd, and brother Elliot Terry, all of Jersey City, New Jersey. He went away to be with the Lord on Wednesday August 20, 2014 at UCSD Hospital in San Diego, CA. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife Estelle Terry of San Diego, three sons Tyrone (Kristy) Wiggins of San Diego, CA, Michael (Latashia) Curtis, Phillip (Tameka) Curtis all of Bayonne, New Jersey, two daughters Khaliha (Brandon) Page and Jessica Gibson all of San Diego, CA, His only sister Vanessa Terry of Jersey City, New Jersey. Father-in-Law Robert (Priscilla) Wiggins, Sr. of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, brother-in-law Robert Wiggins, Jr. and sister-in-law Paula Wiggins all of Jersey City New Jersey, fifteen grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
