Terrence Beiter

In Loving Memory

Beiter, Terrence M.

February 22, 1945 - September 21, 2023

September 21, 2023, Terry Beiter, 78, of St. Louis, MO passed away peacefully at home with his beloved wife Nancy at his side.

Terry was born on February 22, 1945, to Clarence and Elizabeth Beiter in St. Louis. After Terry graduated from St. Mary’s High School, he went on to study City and Regional Planning at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville earning a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree. After graduating, he started his first job with the City of St. Louis. This gave him the kick-start that led to a thirty-plus-year career as a Planning Consultant.

Terry met Nancy in the sixth grade . The two began dating during college, married in 1971 and resided in the city of St. Louis, MO. In 1980 their son Matt was born and in 1984 their daughter Mary was born. The family enjoyed spending their weekends sailing at Carlyle Lake, IL. In 1996, the family moved to Sunset Hills where they have resided for the past twenty-seven years enjoying their garden and pool.

In 2010, Terry retired and spent his time traveling the world, playing golf, watching his grandchildren, dining out, swimming, and being involved at Church. He enjoyed going to the Fox Theatre, St. Louis Art Museum, Powell Symphony, and Shaw’s Garden. He also served as a member of the Sunset Hills Planning & Zoning Committee to continue his passion for serving the community.

He was preceded in death by his parents Clarence & Elizabeth Beiter, his sisters and brother-in-laws Mary (Ronald) Reisa, and Peggy (Jerry) Reisa; his brother-in-law Louis Kruger, and sister-in-law Mary O’Brien.

SERVICES: Visitation is to be held Friday, October 6, 2023, at 9 a.m. followed by mass at 10 a.m. at St. Justin Martyr Catholic Church- 11910 Eddie & Park Rd, St. Louis, MO 63126. Should friends desire, contributions may be made to Powell Symphony.

  1. My condolences to Mary and family on Terry’s passing. I first met Terry at Booker Associates in the early 1980’s at my first job out of school. Terry was a consummate professional and a helpful and patient mentor to those with whom he worked. I had the pleasure of working with Terry on a number of community planning projects over the years and our last assignment together was a very significant project for Boeing – the F-18 assembly plant at Lambert which he managed to a very successful conclusion for both Boeing and the company.
    It was a privilege to have the opportunity to have work with and learn from Terry. His positive spirit, thoughtful approach and good humor made a lasting impact on me.

  2. Dear, sweet Terry you will be missed. I am heart broken that you have left us too soon. It has been such a pleasure to know you and enjoy your sense of humor. I have many fond memories of you. Rest in Peace.

  3. I knew Terry long ago in StL city government, where he worked with diligence, creativity and commitment. He was a class act, whose dignity and good spirit overcame the unfair obstacles that circumstances put in his path. Condolences to his family and friends.
