Memories & Candles
I met Terry 42 years ago and there never was a better friend. We worked, hunted, went to lodge, AA, and played hard together for all those years and I will miss him very much. He was a friend, brother, and mentor
most of my adult life and I love him for it. He touched everyones heart he ever met and will be missed by lots of folks. The one thing I know is that the party really got started in heaven on Wednesday and it will never be the same. We miss you Buddy. A.E.

I really enjoyed waiting on Terry at Springhill catfish restraunt in Pflugerville. We never knew what he was going to do or say next. He made me laugh every time I would see him. I will never forget him calling me and the girls " Gorgeous little Sh@!S" ( his friends will know that word) Terry... U will truely be missed my friend.

We lost a good one with the passing of Terry. He was the friendliest, most jovial friend I have ever had. I often quote something he once said to me. "It's getting better every day." I don't know that I ever really believed it, but I'll never forget it. I will miss you, my friend.

Terry, you were always a loving stable person in the lives of so many. Although you went through many difficult times that would have broken many men, you faced them with tremendous grace.
You are very loved.

I will always cherish the moments I was able to be with Terry. He brought a bright light, smile and laughter to my heart! No matter what kind of day I was having when I would walk in a room Terry's voice and that laugh would without fail put a smile and ray of sunshine on some of my darkest days! You couldn't help being around Terry and not feeling optimistic about the future. He has and will continued to be missed in the many lives he touched!

Terry my dear sweet friend, I have attempted with several post on Facebook to express what you have meant to me over the years. They all seems to fall short. I will always remember the time we worked on the State Convention together and seeing you and Charles at State Conention all over Texas. It didn't matter where we crossed paths, meetings, River Bend Church, assorted AA functions..among others. The thing that was a constant with you was the way

WERE DO YOU START TO TELL HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT A PERSON THAT YOU REALLY THINK A LOT ABOPUT.
I MET TERRY BACK IN THE SEVENTIES WHEN I WAS BUSINESS REPERSENTATIVE FOR THE SHEET METAL WORKERS. HE ALWAYS HAD A GOOD WORD TO SAY AND ALWAYS A BIG SMILE TO MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD.
ONE THING I TREASURE MOST WAS BEING ABLE TO WORK IN HIS DEGREES TO BECOME A MASON. HE LOVED MASONERY AND WENT ON TO BECOME WORSHIPFUL MASTER

He made me feel loved as he'd hold my face, kiss me on the mouth and say "are you being good to you?" so I didn't mind him being in my personal space. He did the same with everyone, male or female. He was genuine, and genuinely cared about all of us.

How do words even begin to truly express how your unconditional love touched not only my life, but so many others. I can hear you say, as you hold my face and look directly at me, "Be good to you." And I see you across the room, big smile and joyful laugh. There is a less light here now without you and you are greatly missed. But I am forever grateful for sharing your life and love with us and
