Since high school, I have so many memories, but the most important one is that you always treated me so kind and treated me the same as a father would treat their own daughter. You are such a loving, caring, and sweet man. Heaven definitely gained a wonderful person.
I love you,
Missy

Deb, Carma, & Todd,

When I 1st started coaching Baseball in the early 80’s, I thought I knew the game!
But, in 1989 & 90 I had the pleasure of coaching with Terry & even though I was the Head Coach, Terry was the real Coach.
Spending time with him for those two years left me with a vast knowledge of the game of baseball & life. 31 years of Coaching baseball I still used the same ‘signs’ while running 3rd base that Terry taught in 89/90.
Terry left a lasting image on everyone he met. I will miss my friend-

Sad to be writing this as I was hoping Terry would have many years to enjoy his retirement. I really got to know him during my many trips to NC on business. He always made me call him and Debbie so we could do dinner when I was in town and even tho I had per diem he insisted on buying me dinner. We will meet again someday my friend!!!

Coach Terry-

I haven’t seen or talked with you in years, but you were a big influence to me in my younger years playing baseball. You taught me the fundamentals of the game I still love to this day. Thank you so much, Coach! I will never forget running to 2nd base looking towards your call and you swinging your arm round and round for me to keep running to send me passed 3rd base then to home plate! Good times!!!! 100%... THE best coach I ever had.

Thank you and RIP...!

Papaw, as we knew him, was a gentle man with a smile on his face and a kind word for everyone. My oldest son Logan always loved to see him and when he was little, Terry would make sure to cuddle him just like he was one of his grandkids. He could joke with the best of them and always made everyone feel welcomed. You will be greatly missed dear Papaw.

Our deepest sympathies to Debbie and her family. He was always so kind to us. I remember his laughter and how he adored his family. There is so much that we are grateful for because of knowing him. Getting together for dinner remains a treasured memory. Prayers for all of you and big hugs too.
