Celebrating the life of

Terence N. Pelli

Terence Norbert Pelli (Terry), owner of Savannah Outboard Services for over twenty five years, born July 28,1959, died September 9, 2022 at Memorial Health University surrounded by his loving family. Terry was a truly generous person, always willing to give his time and expertise to people in need and expecting nothing in return. Country music was his favorite but he could tell you the title and artist of just about any song. He was a great  husband, father, papa and brother.  Terry's work ethic was second to none and he took no short cuts when accomplishing a task. Terry will be missed by family and friends and the world is just a little less bright now that he is gone.

He is survived by his wife of forty years, Frances Langston Pelli; daughter, Robyn Pelli; bonus son, Brett Simon; grandchidren, Vee Kayla Holland and Vash A Holland; bonus granddaughter, Katie Simon; brothers, James A Pelli Jr, and Barbara, Joseph R. Pelli and Linda, and John E.
