Tributes flow for Macarthur’s beloved community figure Terry ‘Tezza’ Diomis


Tributes are flowing for Greek Australian, Terry ‘Tezza’ Diomis, a well-known figure in the Macarthur community and drive host for local radio station My88FM, who suddenly and tragically died January 15.

The 51-year-old dad was dealing with health issues for some time, but his death came as a shock to his loved ones and the Macarthur community, a region in the south-west of Sydney, according to Dailytelegraph.

Family friend, Elizabeth Escarat, started a GoFundMe to support his loved ones to relieve the family of the stress and financial pressures to allow them the time to grieve and mourn. Ms Escarat stated on the GoFundMe for Terry’s family, “We were devastated to lose a beautiful soul, Terry, a beloved husband, father and adored by the Camden and Narellan community.”

“We understand Terry meant so much to so many, his impact on the community was significant and will be cherished by many, if you would like to donate, and support the family through this difficult time, we appreciate it greatly,” she wrote.

Richard Mills and the team at My88 wrote a statement to pay tribute to Tezza, “Terry lived life to the full and his passion, enthusiasm and energy was highly contagious.”

“Tezza had been very unwell for the last two months and sadly passed on Sunday afternoon. This came as a huge a shock to everyone. We extend our deepest condolences to his family, and friends at this terribly sad time.”

The My88 station will share a tribute on January 23, which would have been Terry’s birthday.

A celebration of life service will be held by the the Camden Cycle Club where Terry was a member at C3 New Hope Mt Annan on Tuesday, January 31 at 10:30am.

The cycle club said in a Facebook post, “We are deeply saddened to inform our community that Terry ‘Tezza’ Diomis, a beloved member of our club, passed away unexpectedly.”

“Tezza wished nothing but the best for everyone around him and always went out of his way to make people happy and feel included, he had a story for every occasion and a big cheesy smile that would light up a room,” the Camden Cycle Club wrote.
