I knew that Terry had touched many lives and I wanted to be sure everyone knew that we loved partying with him too! He was the best party host. If you outlasted him he would just say goodnight and tell you to party on....RIP

Terry was always such a sweetheart. I had the opportunity to visit, party and listen good music with Terry and Annette in Spencer's garage. Always fun! RIP Terry!

RIP Terry. So many fond memories when we were growing up. Especially Palo Duro Canyon Mother's Day outings. Praying for comfort and peace for the whole family.

Back in 1978 I spent two years pushing beef at the old IBP in Amarillo when I met Terry. Lots of fun, pranks and laughs with the hard work and Terry made the day a blast. I was privileged to be one of his groomsmen when he wedded Annette. We reconnected a few years ago and was blessed to get to know my buddy again. I believe Terry would do anything for his friends. We were planning to have lunch when Annette called me of his passing. Miss you, Terry! I’m glad I had the time to spend with you and pray for you this past year! Much Love to you and your family as you enjoy Gods presence.

Annette, I'm so very sorry for your loss. "Rugged" or "Spanks" like everyone called him was a precious man. One of my favorite memories was at your beautiful wedding. May all your days ahead be blessed, knowing that you will not be alone and that you and your family are very loved. God has another angel on his side .

Terry was an awesome man. He was a great friend of Art Schultz and was very kind to me. Art thought very highly of Terry. I know they worked together many years at Crouse Hinds. I have faith that they are together again in Heaven. My prayers to all the family.
