Ben Terry was born in Calvert, Texas and graduated from Baylor Law School before valiantly serving in World War II under General MacArthur. He married his best friend at Baylor, Billie, on June 12, 1946, and they started a wonderful life together that lasted until Billie's death in 2012. He was a man of integrity, honesty, and compassion and he was steadfast in his commitment to Jesus Christ, Family and Country. He sacrificed so that all could live in freedom and prosperity, and he rests in the eternal peace he earned. He was truly a good man and loved by all.
He is survived by his daughter Ellen Terry, his grandsons Benjamin Terry and Eugene Terry, and three nephews. He was a member of River Oaks Baptist Church for over 50 years.
