He was an avid Dale Earnhardt fan and especially enjoyed going to the Farmer City Racetrack with his son and grandsons. Terry most loved spending time with his son and grandchildren and nothing brought him more joy than fishing with them.
Terry was so very proud of his son, Terry and daughter-in-law Niki and the family they made for all of his grandchildren. He will be deeply missed and always loved.
