Terrance L. Bodensteiner, 72

Terrance Lea Bodensteiner was born in Austin, MN, on May 28, 1951, to Mildred Marie (Dibble) and William Henry Bodensteiner. He graduated from Pacelli Catholic High School in 1969, and later attended Austin Vocational School, receiving a certificate as a machinist. He apprenticed and became a top-notch tool and die maker, finishing his career at Boeing in Port Angeles, WA. Terry passed away (due to cardiac failure) in Ashton, ID on July 29, 2023, at the age of 72.

Terry’s interests included trap shooting, trapping, hunting, and especially fly fishing. His passion for the great outdoors led him to relocate Out West to be near several Blue Ribbon trout streams, including the Snake and Deschutes Rivers. Despite the many challenges life presented him, Terry’s love of nature inspired and sustained him his entire life.

He will forever be missed by his daughter, Sara Heimer; son, Jesse Bodensteiner; siblings, William, Ann, Joan (Joe McLeod), and Susan; granddaughter, Hailey; niece, Kari; and nephews, John, Joe, and Steven Sattler. Terry was preceded in death by his parents; grandparents; sister-in-law, Wendy Bodensteiner; and childhood friends, Doug Ruble and John Hoffman.
