We have just recently gotten to know Terry. My daughter Ava and I came there to view his home for purchase and hours later we left as new friends. We would talk for hours and his stories were the best! ESP Iceland lol - we are truly heartbroken to hear about his passing. Our last call was such a silly and fun call not knowing I would never hear from him again. He was truly a special soul. He is missed and still thought of daily. Rest with Angels Terry ❤

We were so saddened to hear of the passing of our dear neighbor Terry. He will be missed. He was already so nice and helpful. Many times when I ran a local charity he was always quick to donate and say this is for the great things you do! We will miss him and his talent of making his surroundings more pleasing to the eyes. Our neighborhood will never look as good as Terry made it. We will try to keep it up and not let you down Terry! I wish you were able to enjoy your new chapter in life.. Forever missed..
