  1. My bugh! Terry had something special and I knew that from a young age growing up. He would always light up a room and had a knack of making people smile and laugh, life of the party. His energy always wore off on anyone around him and he always had a big heart. Life was hard on him at times but his reliance to bounce back was astonishing and he is a hero and inspiration to me for that reason alone. You will be missed Terry by your entire family and I will see you soon in heaven and I look forward to receiving one of those hugs that only you can give. RIP.

  2. I’m not sure why I am.just now seeing this but Terry was a great Christian guy. Who cared about everyone he met. Many prayers for his loving family.

  3. You were THE BEST little brother, Terry! I remember you bursting through the front door after school as a small silly boy, ready to eat cookies and watch Thundercats. Your big blue eyes are burned into my mind, as if your own person trademark. I remember watching you step into fatherhood for the first time and then the second time…I can always see you when I look at those kids! I’ll forever miss your amazing hugs and though you usually reached out most when you needed to stop and catch your breath and just empty your heart out to your sissy, the love was deep and genuine. I’ll never laugh as hard as I laughed with you ever again, I know that and I’m not sad about that but filled by the knowledge that my life was shared with such an epic character. You brought me many nights of stomach wrenching worry, but many more days of comedic relief. We will always have our succulent and decadent corn jokes and a life filled with the amazing gift of sibling companionship. Love you always ♥️

  4. Terry you will be greatly missed. I have so many memories of you all the way from riding from AACL to Tascosa together up to recently we I saw you selling cars. You are a great guy and you left a beautiful family behind to keep the memories of you alive. You left this earth way too early. RIP my friend

  5. Jodi and Family,
    Although I only met Terry a few times, I feel as though I have known him for a while now through the many stories told by you, Jodi. I am always just a call or text away and know that you will continue in my daily prayers.
    Tracy & Cynthia
