Terry was a special type of man who loved and experienced the love of his friends, firefighters and family in which I was blessed to have known him. I know that he’ll be missed by all of us especially by Rhonda who loved him more deeply than I thought was possible but was constantly shown otherwise. We’ll miss you forever

It was always so much fun to visit with Uncle Terry when he came to visit us in MN or when us girls would go visit him in FL.
We love you and we’ll miss you.

Gone, but never to be forgotten. He was a proud veteran, firefighter and a great brother. Lots of memories growing up in a small Iowa town in a house of four boys and no girls. Terry and I were not only brothers, but were good friends. He will live on in memory.

My uncle Terry never failed to bring a smile to my face. He had such a heart for others, and you could see it in his smile. So much Love.

Terry will always be remembered and loved. When I think of Terry I picture the smile on his face and the sparkle in his eyes. He would always pull some type of little treasure out of his pocket whether it be a fossil, an arrowhead, a geode, a bead...there was always some type of treasure he had to share. Terry and our boxers had a great relationship. He would hug Zoey and she would love his attention. Terry was a wonderful, kind, funny, sharing, and loving man. He will be greatly missed by everyone.

A friend , a veteran , collector of things , artifact hunter , adventurer , a story teller , a down to earth person liked by everyone . These are some of the of Terry's attributes. Terry and I spent a lot of time in the woods , and lakes looking for artifacts . If I wanted to find any it would be a good idea to look where Terry looked . He had a knack for know where to look . I'll miss our days picking tomatoes at the farms , and times just sitting around with friends telling stories .
Terry loved his family and his granddaughters .They were always first . The only thing I knew of that Terry didn't like was eggs . He would say if it came out of a chickens butt he wasn't having anything to do with it . LOl . You are going to be missed friend .
