Terry Allen Kunkel, 66, of Coatesville, Indiana left this world on Wednesday April 25, 2018 surrounded by his family at the home. He was born on June 12, 1951 to John J. and Barbara J. (Smitley) Kunkel of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Terry enjoyed NFL football, the Indianapolis Colts, and years of Cincinnati Bengals home games.  Johnny Unitas was his favorite player of all time. He spent many years enjoying coaching and refereeing little league soccer and baseball. He was a fan of science fiction, including Star Wars and Star Trek. He listened to a variety of music including Steppenwolf, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, and many more. He was proud of working on the Series 60 Team, a specially selected group, at Allison Transmission. He enjoyed hot, sunny summer weather, but had no love for the cold. He enjoyed setting off extravagant fireworks each Independence Day. He thrilled the grandkids with wagon rides behind the lawnmower each time he could. He loved his wife, children, grandchildren, and the rest of his family beyond measure.

Terry was preceded in death by his parents John J. and Barbara J. (Smitley) Kunkel.

He is survived by his loving wife Kathy J. (Phillips) Kunkel, 2 sons Ryan (Carrie) Kunkel of Zionsville, IN, Adam Kunkel of Indianapolis, daughter Ara (Michael) Wallace of Coatesville, IN, 3 sisters Cindy Gregory, Mary Beth Dyar, Sally Brandenburg, and 3 grandchildren Stella, Hazel, and Madison.
