We only had the privilege of knowing Terry for 7 short years, but in those short years we grew to Love Terry very much. He was a big man with a heart just as big.. he lived to help other people. I could always depend on Terry to do anything I ask him to do. And he would thank me for asking. Terry made my Stephanie very happy and Loved. Terry are so missed and you will always be in my heart. Love and Miss You.

W are saying our final goodbyes to you today I’ve never experienced anything so difficult in my life. I don’t know how we can accept that we’ll never see you again. They say time with Gods help will make this easier, but honestly Son right now I’m not so sure of that. I find comfort from yesterday’s services in Baytown. There were so many people who came to say goodbye to you I think it may have been standing room only. I’ve always known what an amazing person you are, but it was nice to see that you touched so many lives during your time here with us. I’ve got to go for now, people are arriving. I love you baby ❤️

I met Terry in Oct 2007 when I began working at Rio. I had never met a big guy with so much energy until I met Terry. This guy was loud, funny, a trash talker and after a while it was annoying. Then we found out that we both were Marines! And it all made sense to me the way he was. And we've been friends ever since. He had so much PRIDE in being a Marine and it showed! It hurts to know I lost a Marine brother and friend. I pray for his wife and sons. He was one of a kind and he'll be missed by many! Semper Fi.

Jimmy's smile lite up any room he entered. His kind heart and enthusiasm for life showed in everything he did. He saw the good in all. Good son, good husband, good father, good man. We are all better for having been loved by him.

I will carry many good (and wild) memories of Terry from our younger days, and then meeting back up at school functions for our sons when we got a little older. I can't imagine the loss this family is feeling, but know you are all in our prayers. Rest easy, old friend.
