Virgil Terrance 'Terry' Rhodes, MD
Rhodes, MD, Virgil Terrance "Terry" November 6, 1942-September 2, 2017 Terry passed peacefully at the family cabin on September 2. He was preceded in death by his parents Virgil and Andalena. Terry is survived by Sharon, his wife of 54 years; their four children Mark MD (Jane), Christie MD (Jeffrey), Michael MD (Tamara), Greg PhD (Devon); seven grandchildren Nicholas, Daniel, Sarah, Madeleine, Zachary, Jonas, and a new grandson due this month. Terry was raised on his family homestead near Palisade, MN. He graduated from Aitkin High School (1960), Hamline University (1964), and University of Minnesota Medical School (1970). Terry completed a residency in Otolaryngology (ENT) at the University of Minnesota (1976), and he practiced in the Twin Cities, Crosby, and New Prague for 38 years. Children were always the source of happiness in Terry's professional and personal life. He was especially proud of his role in the development of Children's Minnetonka Surgical Center, and served on their executive committee until his retirement in 2014. Family was Terry's dearest love and brought him his greatest joy. His most cherished times were spent with all the generations relaxing together in the woods at the cabin. His passing there, while overlooking the lake, was a blessing. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred. They will be directed in his honor towards the advancement of pediatric care in Minnesota and Tanzania.
