Terry found joy in serving God, his family and his friends. He always found a way to put a little joy in others lives. He was adventurous and loved being outdoors; including camping and fishing with family and friends or just enjoying the rays from the sun. He was artistic and enjoyed writing poetry, drawing, and working on any other crafts he could keep his hands busy with. He cherished the time he was able to spend with his family. Terry always lived life to the fullest and was proud to help others by being a sponsor for those struggling with alcoholism, and for those who just need an ear to listen. Terry was very selfless and always put other needs first.
