My deepest sympathies to the entire Alarcon family, Terry was a wonderful man and a dedicated and honorable public servant. With each encounter, he offered sage advice and wise counsel with a soft and warm smile. His was a life well lived and I am truly sorry to learn of his passing.

Mollie and Josh, Barbara and I were sadden to learn about Terry. He was a very special person in many ways. We truly enjoyed our time together with Terry at Country Day. If there is anything we can do, just ask. Both of you and Terry are in our prayers. Stay safe, take care of each other, and allow your faith to help you in this trying time. Rome and Barbara Evans

It was my great privilege to know Terry as my coach at Airline Park playground, and as a friend from then on. Just a great guy! God bless him and his family. May he rest in peace for a life well-lived.

So sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. Friend for many years, going back to Airline Park Playground. Terry helped my family, several years back, when my children had gotten into some legal problems. He was a very compassionate man. Reacquainted with him when I worked at Ray Brandt Infiniti. He would come, with Ray, to eat lunch with the sales staff on Saturdays. We catered a splendid meal. Always friendly, always helpful, always encouraging...that is how I will always remember Terry Alarcon.

Molly- We are remembering wonderful times with you both. Terry was a great friend and support when we were both at OPP and at Newman football games later. Brenda remembers him as “ a sweet man”. I remember him as someone everyone liked and respected. The world is poorer without him.

I'm a former neighbor of you and Terry that lived on Frankfort Street for 15 years. I always enjoyed seeing Terry and you in the yard or meeting Terry while out walking about in Lake Terrace with my two little dogs (and sometimes a red cat that followed us). Wishing to convey my condolences for your loss, I also want to leave with you my respect for Judge Alarcon's service to the community at Criminal District Court.

Jan and I are thinking of you and sending warm thoughts and hugs- over the great distance and many years.
