Terry Alan Dirks

Terry Dirks, age 63, a lifelong resident of Coushatta, passed away December 2, 2022, after a brief illness.

Terry was born in April 1959 in Coushatta, Louisiana, to Sammie Mercille Lewter. He graduated from Fairview Alpha High School in 1977. Terry worked for Bam’s Skelly with his brother-in-law, Cecil Bamburg. Terry worked at Brown and Root; CW Belcher as a professional butcher; insurance agent; car sales; and marketing.  Although early on, his passion was for cars and hunting, his whole world changed when he became a dad to his Hannah Katelyn. He was so proud of her and his two grandsons.  Being a Papaw to Beckett and Brodie made him beam with pride.

He was preceded in death by his sister and brother-in-law, Kathy and Cecil Bamburg; nephew, John Wesley Bamburg; mother, Sammie Mercille Lewter Bass, and stepfather, Jessie Bass.

Terry is survived by his daughter, Hannah Dirks Fayard and husband, Jake of Stonewall, LA; grandsons Beckett Hiser and Brodie Fayard; sister, Brenda Cottom and husband, Ed of Bossier City, LA; brother Billy Dirks and wife, Yvonnie of Greenwood, LA; nephew Jason Cottom and wife, Tanya Cottom of Bossier City, LA; niece Brittney Dirks Trahan and husband, Josh Trahan of Bossier City, LA;  niece Amanda Dirks Powell and husband, Nathan Powell of Siloam Springs, AR; and six great nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him, but we know he will be telling jokes until we see him again.

Memorial Service for Terry Dirks will be held at Hickory Grove Baptist Church on Saturday, December 10th, 2022 at 10AM with Brother Mike Fort Officiating.

Afterwhile, crocodile!
