Terry loved to live life in the fast lane! Blue drink in one hand with a golf club in the other! Rocking Down the Highway with the No Stray Dogs Tour! Terry loved music and art, he worked hard and he played hard! Terry embraced the role of being a single father, he lived for his kids and grand kids and would do anything for anyone.
Terry enjoyed fishing, golfing and traveling with his partner of 16 years, Donna and dear friends.
His positive attitude while fighting cancer was a reminder to us all to smile through the storm! He was a fighter and a lover. His unmistakable charm and witty personality was radiant. Although Terry passed too soon, we are thankful he is finally at peace. He will be missed by many. Anyone that knew him would say he is one of their favorite people.
