In 1980, he became a volunteer firefighter with the Twin Hills/Gold Ridge Fire District and was the advisor of the Explorer Post from 1993-2003. He was very influential in the Explorer Academy which occurs during Easter break. Terry was a member of the California Firefighters Muster Association and the Woodland Ave Muster Team. He was an active member of the Redwood Empire Classic Chevy Club where he proudly owned a 1963 Ford Galaxie convertible and just recently presented his restored '55 Chevy pickup to club members who always gave him a bad time for owning a Ford. He retired after 12 years of dedicate service with the County of Sonoma as a Building Mechanic. Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Friday, March 22, at Pleasant Hills Memorial Park, 1700 Pleasant Hill Rd, Sebastopol.
