Edward L. Terry Obituary
Edward Terry loved a challenge. In his 30s, he wanted to learn how to fly, so he did. Then he bought himself a plane. But soon he had conquered that challenge, so he sold the plane, used some of the money to buy his fiancée a wedding ring, and used the rest to buy a sailboat. Terry mastered the sailboat as well, then sold it. He used part of the proceeds for a down payment on a new home, and the rest to buy a speedboat. After the speedboat came the motorcycle.
"He always wanted to keep his mind going," said his daughter Kim Terry.
Terry's life might have been fueled by a desire for a challenge, but the biggest challenge was always how he could help others, his stepdaughter, Angie Kosek said. "Anything and everything he did was to help people or to make other people happy. Even with his band, obviously he loved music but he thoroughly enjoyed making people happy."
Edward L. Terry, of Cumming, died June 29 of complications from heart failure. He was 78. Read the news obituary
