Terry was a lot of fun. He never met a stranger. Love to see him beat those drums. He was taken too soon. God bless the family. He will be missed.

Terry will truly be missed in the music industry. Terry was the backbone of the Collegiates for several years. He was one fine drummer!
I will always remember on the road to a gig, 3 dobermans not letting him out of the restroom while on a road stop. I thought they were going to eat him.
TY will truly be missed!
