Terry M. Volbrecht, 72, of Lyons, died peacefully at home surrounded by his family on Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2021.

Terry was born in Elkhorn on May 2, 1949, to Wendolyn and June (nee Young) Volbrecht. On July 20, 1968, at Grace Bible Church in Burlington, he was united in marriage to Darlene Menge.

Terry worked as a stone and brick mason for Scherrer and Strohm Construction. He was an expert mason, restoring many historical buildings in the area, including the St. Mary steeple and Landmark building in Lake Geneva. He was very adventurous, enjoying ice and salt-water fishing, biking, sailing, canoeing and camping with family and friends. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.

Terry is survived by his wife, Darlene Volbrecht; daughter, Destine (Wayne) Rubach; daughter-in-law, Chrissy (Tom Friberg) Volbrecht-Friberg; grandchildren, Bodie (Annastacia) and Gage (Taylor) Rubach and Jason “Jase” Volbrecht; great-grandchild, Mars Rubach; and siblings, Peggy Konrad, Larry Volbrecht, Kenny Volbrecht, Danny Volbrecht, Randy Volbrecht, Jerry Volbrecht, Cindy Cucco and Kristy Mulvey.
