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.

I am very sorry for your loss. Terry and I met doing work on new construction homes. I was the HVAC guy. I was always happy to work side by side with him. Very hard worker, very good at his craft, we listened to the same music and we both enjoyed racing. He could cuss with the best but was a true gentleman at heart. Yes... he will be missed. He was one of the good guys I´ve met in this life.. RIP.
