I haven’t talked to or seen Terry in many many years and still.. I was so heart broken to hear of his illness and untimely passing; too soon.

I met Terry in 7th grade and graduated with Terry; I grew up with Terry. I wish our paths would have crossed again.

Such a kind, sweet, precious soul. I will cherish our time we had together and our many wonderful memories.. always. He was so loved.. Rest easy my friend. ❤️ Prayers to his family.

Always admired Terry from afar! Our paths crossed in Junior High but our friendship didn't take off until High School. There were only a few guys I looked up to and he was one. Never rattled always cool calm and collected. He accepted me into the Yellowjackets fraternity in 1984 with open arms when he didn't have to. For me that's when I felt our friendship took off. For that I'll always be grateful and thankful for our friendship. That meant the world to me! It still resonates in my heart and in my mind today!
RIP my friend...
