In memoriam: Terry Svejda

Former Fermilab employee Terry Svejda died on Jan. 13 at the Veteran’s Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was 76 years old. Svejda, a twin, was born in Chicago on November 2, 1942. At a young age, he joined the United States Navy and served for four years.

In the early 1970s he was employed by Fermilab in the Mechanical Support Department of the Accelerator Division. He is survived by his wife Nancy who was also employed by Fermilab as a scanner in the FAF Department for 10 years. Around 1985, he left Fermilab to devote full time to “The Aurora Home Video Store,” which he owned  in Aurora, Illinois. By 1995, he sold the store and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada.
