My big brother was truly bigger than life and he lived his life to the fullest. He was strong in any situation and fought the good fight. He was kind, funny, very loving, smart, generous, and always told you what he thought. I miss him so much. I love you Terry and will look forward to seeing you in heaven one day.

I had the pleasure of meeting Terry in Las Vegas, his wife Gail & I we’re co-workers. One thing I knew about Terry is he had a dedication to Gail & his girls . The fastest way to make him smile was to talk about golf or grands. He will be missed.

Gail had made me something special for my birthday one year which happened to be a desert that he loved. I got the desert missing a piece with a birthday note in it's place from him. He was a man of tremendous kindness and humor. He will be missed.

Pro played a major role in my teenage and adult life. He gave me my first job at Great Southwest Country Club as a Senior in High School and taught me so many things ... good and bad. He taught me how to play golf, how to manage a business, a little bit about gambling, but most of all, he taught me how to be a good man. He always treated me like his own son and was willing to listen to me and definitely gave me his opinion on so many things. We kept in touch over the years and I loved him dearly. I was so thankful that I got to visit with him last year. Gail, Joni, and Marlo - you had a great husband and father. I’m so sorry for your loss. You all are in my prayers. Terry was such a bigger than life guy. He will be dearly missed.
