After retirement he traveled to Canada, Mexico and also took an Alaskan Cruise. He wanted to travel more but time didn't allow that. He loved his family very much and always wanted to spend time with the grandkids as much as he could.
Terry loved to fish and he loved to travel. He always had an animal in his life also. He loved to dance and sing. He was a very social person and always enjoyed being around people. He attended his local church for many years where he served as an usher, greeter and also drove the seniors around for a while. He had a servant's heart and loved the Lord.
