Terry was a wonderful neighbor and hard worker for the entire neighborhood.

He would always plow the neighborhood every snow fall, multiple times a day if needed. He would make extra trips to clean out driveways too for those who needed it.

At my father's funeral last year, Terry, staring down his own mortality, told my mom and I with the utmost sincerity that he would do anything he could do to help her out.

May he finally rest and that those who loved him cherish the good memories they shared.

Terry did some work for my wife (Judy) and I. We also had some great times playing pool with Terry and Merrilyn. He will greatly be missed.

Terry not only was a friend and business associate but was always upbeat and a lot of fun to party with. We had a lot of laughs at The Board meetings and official functions. I will never forget our trip to the Bahamas, Board Christmas Parties and sharing endless stories about our businesses.

Thoughts and prayers go out to all of Terry's children and family members. He was a very unique individual with tons of energy and a passion for life. He will be missed by all who knew him. God Bless!
