Rick, Jackie , Peggy ,Barb, and Terrys entire family. I am so very sorry to her of Terry's passing. As soon as I saw his picture in the obituary memories flooded back to Germany, when Rick and I at a young age of 19 when on one of the greatest adventures of my life traveling around Europe for a week. One of our stops of course was staying with Terry in Bad Krausnick Germany. We had such a wonderful time just sitting and talking with Terry for hours and of course drinking some incredible local wine. I am happy to have known Terry. My deepest condolences go out to all of his family. I am sorry for your loss. May he now rest in peace in the hands of the lord.

To the Dottie, the children the extended family and Jackie, Peggy, and Rick we grew up together. The shock to everyone Terry will be missed he was all those things you said about Terry. He was a great friend...I am at a loss for words to say to the family. God bless you all and to the rest of the family. Much love as we journey this loss. May Terry rest in peace. Amen, My memory was the running on round top hill, hearing him laugh at Jackie jokes, and making us laugh when we cried. We all loved you...thank you for being my friend. To the family, I know those that are there already greeted him. He will walk with you, Watch for him because he will surprise you and be with you. I remember that too about Terry. Your family friend Aunt Patricia Mama Trisha

On All Saints Day, 1955, legend has it that nine year old Terry disappeared and was in trouble until they found out he rode his bike to mass for his baby sister, just born. Thus the stage was set for all the years of him being such a loving, loyal, protective, fun, encouraging, always-have-your-back big brother. Memories fill me with love , gratitude, and heartbreak for Dot and our "Kansas Greenes" who must navigate life without his physical presence. May his precious family be held in his light until they can once again be held in his hugs.

It was an absolute joy to be able to work side by side with Terry when he came to our company about 15 years ago. I don’t remember much about the details of our business adventures, but Terry’s example and influence are permanent on a personal level.

Fridays and Mondays are what I remember the most. All Terry would talk about Fridays was the upcoming weekend family events; and then the recap on Mondays. I never got tired of listening to the stories (it didn’t sound like there was ever a dull moment), because they were shared with pure joy. What I didn’t realize at the time is that I was learning from his example. Thanks Terry!

To Dot, Reggie, Nate, Bridget, Allie, & ALL of the Greene Family: Terry had an enormous amount of love for his family, and was proud of you all. I’m sure you know this, but what I wish to express is that everyone who came into contact with Terry knew it too.

I didn’t know Terry on a personal level, but knew him through my friendship with his son. Through our work on Nate’s house though, I saw his work ethic, humor, love and commitment to his family. He was never one to turn off the breaker before changing out an outlet or switch, and this brought comic relief more than a few times. He’d ‘scold’ us for whipping up Jayna’s dad on work that wasn’t “up to union standards”, only because Pete (bless that man) would complain to him when we wouldn’t listen. If you thought listening to Royals baseball on radio (in 2006) was boring, he’d up the ante the next day with NASCAR in radio.
I didn’t know him Terry all that well, but I know he was a man that loved God, his family and the United States of America. I respect the hell out of him and I hope to leave a legacy as rich as his.

Rick and I will miss seeing Terry working outside on the house or the yard or just driving by with a wave. He will be sorely missed by our neighborhood.

Terry was one of the All-Time Greats! Such a kind individual with an infectious laugh, he always made you feel welcome. I'm grateful that my wife, children and I were able to get to know him. He set a wonderful example of putting family first and it's clear he loved being a Husband, Dad and Grandpa.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
