To the Terrill family, thank you for sharing your Dad with me as I travelled the world with your parents in 1985. They were loving and caring and gave their heart and soul to their volunteer work. Your Dad was not only a friend but also a mentor and leader. He will be sadly missed. Know that he will always be with you and remember the wonderful memories that you have of him.

Sorry for the families loss. Dad Terrill was a wonderful person and will be missed by many. My family would typically try and visit him in Spring Hill when we were there visiting family once he and Mom Terrill moved there.

To all my cousins and their families,
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put his arms around you and whispered, Come to me. A golden heart stopped beating hard, working hands at rest. God had you come to him to prove He only takes the best.
Now he is with the love of his life and I am honored and blessed to have known Uncle Chuck. He was truly a blessing in my life and I will miss him. A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven. Much Love Diane

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. Chuck was a wonderful friend and worked so hard on the HIKE Fund. He taught me a lot during my 14 years on the HIKE Board. You have my sincere sympathy.

Chuck was one of a kind. He and Emma started the Hearing Impaired Kids Endowment (HIKE) Fund in 1985 and because of their vision over 2600 children have received the gift of hearing through grants that provide hearing aids and other devices. Almost 5.2 million dollars have been raised since 1985. Chuck was all about helping the kids. Claudia and I were fortunate to have him as one of our friends. John & Claudia Hauser
