Terry was a gentle soul with an infectious smile and laugh. Terry loved cooking, singing, dancing, decorating and telling jokes. He also enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. There was nothing he would not do if asked! Terry’s favorite sayings were “Hey Doll” and “You know I love you.” If you received a text from Terry, it would be in ALL CAPS!
