He is also survived by his brother and sister-in-law Hank and Kate Ott. Terry was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania and moved to Florida when he was 6 weeks of age. He loved spending time with his family and also loved spending time outdoors. He previously worked as an electrician, owned an irrigation company, owned a welding shop, and trapped alligators for the State of Florida. Terry then made a career shoeing horses and was a well respected farrier for 35 years. He took great pride in the therapeutic care he provided to horses and the relationships he made with people in his community. Terry will be fondly remembered as a loving husband and father, patriot, hard worker, and Christian. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends. A memorial mass to celebrate Terry's life will be held on Saturday, February 20th at 9:30 a.m. at Saint David's in the Pines, 465 West Forest Hill Boulevard, Wellington, FL 33414.
