Robert “Terry” Terrance Shea, age 82, of Seabrook, New Hampshire, passed away on April 4, 2022. He was born in Revere, MA, on January 5, 1940, son of the late Edward and Mary Helen (Bronsdon) Shea. He was the husband of the late Joanne (Hansen) Shea.
Terry was employed as a shop foreman at Vacuum Industries in Somerville MA and then Nashua NH. After retiring as a shop foreman, he drove a charter bus for Coach Companies in Plaistow NH. He drove the bus for the Lowell Spinners, Manchester Fisher Cats and Portland Seadogs.
He enjoyed driving and traveling. He especially enjoyed driving for the local triple A baseball teams and getting to watch all their games. His favorite team was the Boston Red Sox’s. He never missed a game. He also loved being surrounded by his children and grandchildren almost every Sunday for dinner. When he could get together with his brothers and sisters, they would talk for hours sharing all their childhood stories. They never got old and he would laugh at the fact that their stories would change a little every time they wore told.
Terry is survived by his three children, Deborah (Shea) Davis and husband Russell of Kingston, NH, Karen Shea of Everett, MA and fiancé, David Delgreco, Stephen Shea and wife, Chandra, of Sandown, NH. His grandchildren, Matthew, Brian, and Craig Davis, Cara (Woodward) Grehs and Jasmine Shea. His great-grandchildren, Logan and Tayla Davis, Brayden and Jaiva Brunelle and Monica, Bianca, and Lucas Grehs; his brother, Michael Shea and wife Patricia, Brian Shea, Keith Shea and wife, Kathy Lee; sisters, Kathleen Tourgeman and Peggy Barbarino; sisters-in-law, Loretta Hansen and Janet Saxon; along with many loving nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his son, Robert (Rob) T. Shea Jr., and older brother Edward Shea.
