I remember Terry as someone that his life wasn't just centered on himself but he was good at encouraging others in their work for God if you needed to know the best place to eat ask Terry he's tried them all I was privileged to be the one to help him to be conservative on money by putting a 10 cent pack of flavor in his drink and save 2 to 3 dollars on a drink lol he was pleased with that I'm sure he will be missed by many prayers and condolences from Pastor Kelley

I have such fond memories of “Hoover” as the Alcoa High School basketball team manager. He was one of a kind! He and my wife were Facebook “friends” and we kept up with him a little on social media. We both share with you in your grief but at the same time we celebrate his gain! We will see him again!

Blessings,

Coach Jack French

P.S. I am certain that Coach Osborne and Coach Abbott welcomed Hoover home and they are having a lively discussion about basketball right now!

Tammy and Family
I forgot to say you and your family are in my prayers. Dad and Linda said they are very sorry and they are praying for you and family. He said because of covid he will not be able to attend tomorrow night. Heaven has gained another Angel.

I went to high school with Hoover and have seen him over the years at class reunions. He was a wonderful teenage friend and adult friend. He will be missed by all who knew him. Praying for his family especially his girls that he was so proud of. It is comforting to know that we will see him again in Heaven. I find it comforting that he passed away during this Holy Week.
