    Recently at the 50th high school reunion I was asking where Terry was and what did people know. He was one of the really good guys in high school. He stood up against the bullies and was able to disarm people with his incredible smile. He was part of the "Kingston" football team and would come to play the "Turner" team when we were in grade school and jr high. We had a great time. He and I were pledge brother at Kappa Sig at OSU. I regret not keeping up with him. I am so sorry for your loss and hope Terry had a great life.


    I've known Terry for several years, I went to high school with him as well as he was a friend of the family for several years. Terry did have a smile for everyone and always made everyone smile that was around him. I, as well as my family members have shared special thoughts of him throughout the years, he will always hold a special place in our hearts. Good times good memories. My heart goes out to his family, friends and family always were very important to him. My prayers and thoughts are with you. RIP Terry you will be missed by all .
