Terrence "Tony" Chandler Humphrey,
age 70, made the transition from earth to the arms of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday March 7th, 2010 while at home in Sequim with his wife at his side after a valiant battle with cancer.
Tony grew up in Northridge, Ohio, the eldest son of Chandler Humphrey and Kathleen Welch Humphrey and was preceded in death by his parents, younger brother, Jim and younger sister Karen. Tony is survived by his wife Beverly of 45 years; his only daughter, Terri Festa, son-in-law Robert Festa, two grandchildren, Stephano and Michael; and sister Donna Gapa of Ohio.
In 1957 Tony began his career in the United States Navy as an enlisted Air Controlman 3rd Class. Excelling in his work, he steadily progressed over the next 30 years to his eventual retirement in 1987 as Master Chief, senior enlisted air traffic control advisor on Staff of Chief of Naval Operations, Washington, DC. Tony deployed numerous times on the USS Oriskany and the USS Kitty Hawk during which he did several tours on Yankee Station off the Vietnam Coast.
After retiring from the military, Tony went on to other successful endeavors including consulting to various Department of Defense contractors as a Subject Matter Expert; Church Administrator at Calvary Chapel El Cajon; and Police Services Officer in the Communications and Traffic Divisions of the El Cajon Police Department in California.
In recent years however, one of Tony's greatest joys became serving as a First Responder with the Samaritan's Purse Disaster Response Team. He deployed numerous times serving those in need, with compassion, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and other domestic disasters.
His success at everything he put his hand to can be directly attributed to his God-given integrity, work ethic, legendary attention to detail and the discipline and patriotism he learned in the Navy, as friends and family will attest. Tony is already and will continue to be sorely missed.
Memorial Services will be held at Calvary Chapel Sequim, 27 March 2010 at 2:00 PM. (www.calvarychapelsequim.com).
