Terry and I went way back, he had a wonderful sense of humor and was the kind of person everyone loved to be around. His love for music was unsurpassed and it was always great to guess the songs. My condolences go out to his son, grandson, and family.

I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathy and prayers. I worked and played volleyball with Terry in the '90s. He was a wonderful person and I am glad to have known him.

Terry and I go all the way back to Wooten Elementary and grew up one street and a block from each other in Crestview. He was always kind, thoughtful and had a joie d'vivre that communicated to all who knew him. He DJed all our class reunions and I don!t imagine anyone filling those shoes. We'll miss him.
