I knew Terry for over 30 years. We hadn't seen much of each other for the last few years, but I still felt close to him. I just found out about his passing today. My sympathy to his family. May his memory be for a lessing.

Although several months have passed, I just learned of Terry's death. I wondered why I had not seen him lately at the Trylon, but had no idea he had died. I barely knew his name, but I would visit with him every time I saw him at any films. His great knowledge of films both wellknown and obscure transformed itself into great conversations. I will really miss him.

I too just learned of Terry's passing. He was one of the great film goers, a true gentleman, a sincere human being, and a friend to cinema and cinephiles everywhere. I'll remember his cobalt blue list, his witty comments before and after screenings, his infectious laugh, his commitment to film culture, and his friendship in the difficult days of the Oak Street Cinema's turbulent transition. I weep for you Terry, you were one of the greats. thanks for being a part of my life.

I just learned of Terry's death, and I am so sorry. I also graduated in 1967 from Roosevelt H.S., and first became acquainted with Terry at Nokomis Jr. High. He is one of the people from my school days whom, even though I haven't seen for years, I have never forgotten. He was an original, fun, and talented. Blessed be his memory.

I knew Terry through Morris Park, Nokomis J.H., and Roosevelt H.S. Unfortunately, I lost contact with him after high school. I was very sorry to hear of his passing. He was a great kid to grow up with through all those school years. Mark and Penny, if you would like to see a great picture of your brother, find a 1967 Sagamore (RHS yearbook). There is picture of him in one of his trademark plaid shirts leading the Pep Band. It's a great memory.

My deepest sympathies to Terry's family. A 67' RHS grad myself, I will always remember his love of music, his humor, his spirit and wonderful smile and laugh. Rest in peace, Terry

So sorry we could not make it yesterday because of the weather. I truly enjoyed seeing Terry at my moms birthday party in April and getting a chance to visit with him .
again he was at brother Jim's funeral in November. I have a lot of great memories of when we were all kids on the farm at Dallas. It is sad that we loose track of each other. love Judy

From everyone at the Trylon microcinema, we mourn Terry's passing. I am a volunteer projectionist there, and first met Terry when he would come to watch a movie Saturdays at 7--he was always there at that time. He had an infectious laugh, and a wealth of film knowledge, not to mention a love of movies and the movie community. He will be missed.

I recently posted a tribute to Terry at my blog: http://www.mudvillemagazine.com/bug/weblog.php?id=P388

I got to know Terry Blue as a freshman at Augsburg. He was a bright man with an encyclopedic knowledge bank-especially athletics. I have great memories of great conversations with "T. Blue" He will always be remembered.

I met Terry at the Oak Street around 2003 and he gave me a wealth of knowledge, from film to history to politics to transportation to sports to investing. His breadth of knowledge concerning so many subjects was unbelievable and I will miss all conversations I never got to have with him.

Who can forget Terry and his great movie parties, Oscar parties, his salt water fish tank and his great laugh. Terry, you were a great friend to the girls of Lambda House, Augsburg College. You even took Mary and me into your home when we needed a place to stay. May there be a great movie theater in heaven, but, of course, you will be with the stars.

Terry was a great friend at Ausgburg. We worked together a lot, he as the trainer, me as the statistician, for the football and basketball teams. I lived with him at Zeta House on the Auggie campus, and in his house at 26th and Franklin in the early 1970s. We lost touch after I got married, but I was lucky enough to see him again five years ago at a movie theater in Dinkytown. Terry was a unique man, great friend, and I feel his loss greatly. His passing reminds me that it is important to stay in touch with old friends as we get older ourselves. RIP in Terry; you won't be forgotten by your friends and loved ones.

I graduated with Terry from Roosevelt High School (Class of '67). He was so liked by his classmates; involved with school activities; a man following his own heart when doing so can be difficult in HS...people loved him for it! Rest in peace

Terry was a very colorful person in our salon, as well as very knowledgeable in so many avenues.
He will be greatly missed, and remembered in our thoughts and prayers.

Terry was a strong Union man of the Carpenters Local. He always had some ideas on how to do it better. A strong adversary in running for a field rep of the local. We all will miss him.

I got to know Terry because of my wife, who did Terry's hair at Salon Unlimited in St. Paul! He was always happy to see me when we could! His great personality and great ability to have a conversation on ANY topic will be missed!

Terry....Although we never got to see each other in the last few months, you were thought of! And will be for the rest of my life! You were, ARE, a great friend and I'm extremely happy our paths have crossed!

R.I.P. my friend!

My condolences To Terry's friends and family. I am saddened by his passing and sorry that, as many times as I thought of him over the years and wondered what became of him, I never made the effort to contact him.

Terry had a special place in the hearts of his RHS classmates. Of the many memories I have of him, first and foremost in my mind is of him conducting the Pep Band in The Auditorium.

Pete Agre recalled Terry's "Return of The Cat Man" movie (starring the inimitable Jim Hessberg). I thought it was a "Werewolf" but, it was hands down the best movie made by a Minneapolis teenager living south of 54th St. and east of 34th Ave. that year. While none of the actors deserved any awards, I'm sure Terry would have won for director, screenplay, editing and visual effects.

I/we will miss you.

Terry on the 23-line on 38th street (summer 2009)
Terry rode my bus on 38th Street in Minneapolis for years, often on his way to the movie theaters. He would share his views on the cinema with all of us, and people looked to him for suggestions on which movies to see. Certain select individuals, drivers and passengers alike, were honored to get a copy of his "Cobalt List" with his top thirty movies of each year. Terry and I got to know each other, and I looked forward to seeing him. It just hasn't been the same since he got his car. I'm very sorry about his passing and will convey the news to my other passengers.
