Terrin Durfey

Terrin Durfey, 34, passed away October 28, 2008, in Fallbrook. He was born January 1974 in Encinitas.

Terrin will always be remembered as a special and magical person. He made everything and everyone feel special through his love of life, sense of humor and sweet, kindhearted ways. He made people feel good about themselves and readily opened his heart to give and to receive love.

His creativity through art, photography, writing and music were truly a blessing for all and he happily shared his talents modestly and humbly. In 1992, during his senior year at San Dieguito High School, he discovered his passion for the bass guitar and began developing his musical talents.

He is perhaps best known in the music genre for his work with the indie-rock band Boilermaker, which set in motion an impact on the music scene in San Diego County that is felt today. It was his distinctive voice and bass guitar talents that created, dedicated and excited fans. He continued to develop his talents by later creating The Jade Shader band. More recently, he was thrilled and honored to play keyboard with Pinback’s touring band.

Terrin was a gifted, talented and special man, a loving son and an adoring and devoted husband, father and brother.

Survivors include his wife Adrienne and son Dakota Durfey; mother Barbara (Masters) and stepfather Steve Patterson; father James Durfey and stepmother Claudia Leonesio; stepmother Jeannie (Durfey) DeCarlo; brother Sean and sister Shea Durfey; grandmother Beverly Patterson, grandfather Graham and step-grandmother Sandee Patterson; mother-in-law Aiko Savino and brother-in-law Michael Savino; aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A Celebration of Life for Terrin will be held by family and friends.
