RIP my good friend, Minnow. I enjoyed, and am proud of, our time together. A true patriot and sportsman. It was my honor, and pleasure, to count you as a friend. Rest easy, my friend. Your labors are done. I hope you have many chances at whatever game suits your fancy.

Rest easy, dear friend. We've been pals since meeting in 3rd grade at OLPH way back in 1958. I'm glad we got to speak this past December and catch up on happenings with our children and grandchildren. Keep on fishing, hunting, and strumming your guitar in the great beyond. Marghee and I send our condolences to Nancy, Terry Jr., Jessica, Doug and Joyce. We may be far away but our hearts are with you now.

Dear Paris Family, I was so saddened to hear of Uncle Terry’s passing. Pam told me that Uncle Terry had a great life filled with love and many adventures, and the pictures you shared made those memories come alive. I know he loved his family dearly and that he will be sorely missed. Sending love and my condolences to all of
you . Love, Betty

So sorry for your loss, Terry was a great friend and like us loved to fish, hunt and have a good time. He was such a gentle man, never saw him in a bad mood. We went on so many vacations together, and belonged CYC with him, salmon unlimited, and the
CYC fishing club. We had so many wonderful times and memories
with him. We will miss him so much. There is another angel in heaven.
