Terry was our kids’ Papaw, WOW, what a great one he was! Papaw helped us a lot with our kids and taught them a lot of valuable things. He used to buy our kids cases of diapers and picked them up from the daycare when they were little. . just to name a few things, He enjoyed taking the kids to the fair in the summer and letting them swim in his and Mimi’s pool. He loved our kids and they loved him . Such great memories, he will be forever missed.
He wasn’t just our kids’ Papaw he was all kids’ Papaw. We were blessed to have him in our lives.
Love, Patrick and Celeste Butcher

Sorry to hear. Proud to say I had the privilege of playing softball with and against Q. A great guy who I also enjoyed talking deer hunting with. The family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Terry was such a great kid! I remember us all growing up in Clear Creek . We lived at the bottom of the hill, and we’d walk past the Quillen house on our way to school. They lived in the home my great grandparents lived in. I’ll always remember the good times playing with the Quillen kids. Rest high on the mountain, Terry.

My heart is broken for my big buddy. Not only was he a great hitter in softball which I got the privilege to play with and against he was fun to play golf with and fish with. The best thing about TQ was his heart he truly cared about those he considered friends . I will miss him god bless his family and all the people he touched with his contagious smile and laugh

Sam and I are so sad to hear about Terry's passing. So many memories come to mind regarding softball games back in the late 1980's and 1990's. A real family. Sam and Terry spent many evenings and weekends playing softball with a lot of good friends. I enjoyed sitting the bleachers with Patty, Nikki, Darlene and others. Terry could hit the ball a mile almost every time. It was a shame when several of the guys, due to rules, had to hold back on homeruns. Terry married a gem - a good lady; his family was just that - a close and loving family; and, Terry always had a big smile on his face.

Sam and I send our heart-felt condolences, lots of hugs, and prayers for healing. We were both touched by the love and acceptance and friendship throughout the years.
With Love...
Sam and Mary Lou Emmons

So sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. Terry and I went to school together and always called each other “cuz”. We weren’t real cousins but had the same aunt, my Aunt Doris. He called her “Aunt Jean”. We would sure mix up other kids by trying to explain all that! Terry was a beautiful person. He was always so kind. i will miss him when I make my way to Bloomington. I love all of you and am praying for your peace and comfort - Mary, Archie, David, Gary, Diane and families.

Love,
Ann Dyson (Jones)
