MANSFIELD: Terry L. “Bub” Sansom, 43, of Possum Run Road, Mansfield, died Wednesday evening, April 4, 2007 in his home, following a long illness.

He was born May 28, 1963 in Mansfield, to Virgil L. and Betty L. (Wharton) Sansom, and was graduated from Clear Fork High School in 1981.

For 17 years, Terry served as area manager for Denny’s Restaurants.

A lifelong area resident, he attended Clear Fork Wesleyan Church.

A sports fan of The Ohio State Buckeyes, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Browns, he dearly enjoyed playing outdoor sports with his children.

Not one to complain, Bub had an easy-going personality, that radiated from his heart of gold. His dedication to his family and strong work ethic was loving and attractive to everyone who knew him, as he never turned away anyone who sought his help.

He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law Christopher “Jerry” and Irina Sansom of Lexington; daughters and son-in-law Tara and Rick Hayden and Kaila Sansom all of Mansfield; a grandson Grant Hayden, a granddaughter Jadin Sansom, and an expected grandson Mason Terry Sansom; his parents Virgil and Betty Sansom of Bellville; his maternal grandfather F. Wilmer Wharton of Bellville; brothers and a sister-in-law Gary and Rinda Sansom of Bellville and Keith Sansom of Mansfield; his sister and brother-in-law Sherry and Bruce Smith and treasured nephew Brandon Smith all of Bellville; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a community of cherished friends and co-workers at Denny’s.

The family will receive friends today, Friday, April 6, 2007 from 2-4 and 6-8 pm in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home, where the funeral service will be held Saturday at 1:30 pm. Pastor Joel Warner will officiate. Burial will follow in Bellville Cemetery.
