For 25 years our relationship was one of business based, Terry's respect for others and his strong base in his faith made Hercules a better place to work for all.

My condolences to all of you.

I was in elementary school with Terry and Rae at Liberty-Benton.

I haven't seen or spoken to either of you in...wow, over 50 years!

What I remember MOST about Terry is the wagon trip in...1976? My family had moved away from Findlay, but I enjoyed the write up in the Lima News. I remember thinking at the time that I would have liked to talk to him about it.

I am so sorry to hear about Terry. What a sweet man he was. I had not seen Terry for years then he started working at Kohl’s where I also worked. He was working there while he was going to school. Terry actually lit up when talking about the Lord and his Family. He was the type of person we all strive to be like as Christians . I am praying for strength for your Families.
