Illinois auctioneers lose one of their own

We were greatly saddened last week to learn that Terry G. Wilkey, of El Paso, had passed away at the age of 61. Terry was a very fine auctioneer who had on several occasions called sales for Murray Wise Associates. An auctioneer for 40 years, working primarily around central Illinois, Terry was regarded as a leader among his colleagues, serving as past president of the Illinois State Auctioneers Association. In 2004, he was the association’s Auctioneer Bid Calling Champion, and the following year, he placed in the top 15 in the National Auctioneers Association’s International Auctioneer Championship.

All of us at MWA extend our condolences to his wife, DeLois, and to his three daughters.
