Terry Dominic Libbon

Jan 15, 1956 – Jul 30, 2015

Terry Libbon passed away July 30 in Salt Lake City, Utah where he was awaiting a heart transplant. Terry was born in Pittsburgh,PA on Jan 15, 1956. The youngest of 3 boys to William and Kay Libbon. His family moved to Santa Maria in 1961. Terry graduated from Santa Maria high school in 1974. Terry had a passion for cars. Out of high school he began working as a lot boy for Toyota and later worked service for Stewart Olds. He eventually had his own Chevy dealership in South Lake Tahoe and he then went on to own a few other car lots in surrounding areas. Terry loved the thrill of bargaining with people and he had a great knack for it. We used to say Pops could sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman wearing white gloves. Terry loved spending time with his family, teasing his grandkids, watching movies and having family bbqs. Terry married Cindy Rizzo in 1979 and had two children, Terry Jr. And Jamie. Terry is survived by his wife Cindy, son Terry(Vonna), daughter Jamie(Garth), four granddaughters whom he cherished Ivy, Embree, Izabella, and Liliana. Also by his two brothers George of San Pedro and Bill from Santa Maria, and numerous nieces and nephews. Terry is preceded in death by his parents William and Kay and father in law Tony. Terry’s laugh and smile will be missed by all! His memorial will be held on his 60th birthday in Genoa town hall on January 16,2016 at 3pm.
