My Uncle Terry was a shining light in our family. He always knew how to make me smile. I think Terry was one of, if not the funniest person I have had the pleasure of knowing. I'll always remember him in his favorite place, the kitchen, making fajitas or BBQ. Terry was an amazing chef and I always looked forward to his wonderful meals. He loved me and my girls, Daisy and Lucy, SO very much and we loved him right back. I know he is in a better place and is looking down on us with a goofy smile on his face. Love you, Uncle Terry, aka Gu. You are forever in our hearts.

I had the pleasure of working with Terry these past 3yrs.( And yes we had our ups and downs). One of the things I will always remember about Terry, is the way he would flip his hair to the side.. "Like A Rock Star" lol.. And when he was in deep thought, he would stand there and stare out into space. So I would jokingly say to him .. "Which way did he go George?" He would bust out laughing.
Terry spoke of his family with much love. My thoughts and prayers are with you all...

RIP Woo Woo....
"Cheers too your new life in Heaven."

To The Wooten Family,
I knew Terry a long time ago, he was a very good man. He was a freshman at South Houston High School when I was a senior, he followed our band throughout the 60’s. Years ago when he married my sister-in-law Carolyn we became more than friends, we became Family. I especially want to hold her and John up in my thoughts and prayers, but most of all I know I will see him again one day, in Heaven with our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ!

Thinking of you often. Remembering you always ... and all the special times we spent in your home. Those Christmas and summer birthday visits … when you used your “radio voice” to share hilarious stories about people you dealt with at work. When you cooked those super delicious steaks to perfection. And that extra special time when we danced in the kitchen. Not to mention that when you guys were left on your own all day, the only time you left the house … was to buy more beer! Yes, we will remember, Terry. And yes, there will be dancing!

Terry , James my brother and I were working together at arco chem plant back in late 70's. One day riding to work we stopped at red light. When light turned green I took off. When I did, the back part of my seat went backwards and I was looking up at the ceiling of the car. All I heard was Terry's laugh. He laughed so hard we had to pull off side of rd. Great.memoried. have too many to post but they are in my heart. RIP Terry. Until we meet again.

Terry and I were high school friends. He was best friends to me & my first husband; best man at our wedding. After high school we remained in close contact with each other, doing just about everything together. After awhile our lives took different paths; as old friends often do. But every 5 or 10 years, out of the blue either he or I would give the other a call, and our conversations would continue as if we had been talking daily. That is what I will miss of my friend. My biggest memory of Terry was in the early 70's, maybe '73, we (he & his spouse, me & my spouse, and his buddy Mike) took a road trip to Austin to see Santana. I was very excited as it would be our first road trip & concert. We were young, over 21 and could do anything. But it was indeed a memorable trip. First thing out of the bag, the car over heated because no one thought to give the engine a quick check before starting out. And back then, we drove our vehicles hard! Put some gas in it, crank up the 8 track, and off we went. Not a care in the world! Then, we looked for a hotel. HA! Everyone knows that college towns always have rooms available on concert weekends! NOT!!!! HAHA! But we did finally find one. Then we were off to find the stadium and get in our seats! GEEZE! The worst time in my life! Thousands of people! The Texas heat was so hot, and down in that stadium was even hotter. People were passing out everywhere from heat exhaustion. We finally make it to our seats, and the guys send us girls to go get the beer! It was the 70's and wives did what their new husband's asked. By the time we got back to the guys, the concert has almost over! And the beer was HOT! And that was the last of my outdoor concerts for sure! Back at the hotel, we shared a bucket of KFC and enjoyed Terry 's entertainment the rest of the night. He could always make a bad situation hilarious! I will miss you my friend. I'm so thankful for the last few years with you and Carolyn.

I have so many happy memories of Terry and his beautiful family whom he loved with his whole, big heart! Terry and I ended up on the phone together the night Princess Diana was killed and I will always think of Terry when I think of Diana! May they both Rest in Peace, two beautiful souls. You will be dearly missed my friend!
