    Hi Dawn,
    I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. I have a lot of great memories of hanging out at your house when we were younger. Your parents were always the “cool” parents of the neighborhood. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I will never forget Uncle Terry especially his laugh which I heard often or his love for music fun and motorcycles. It was a second home to me as Uncle Terry and Aunt Rox cranked Boston daily which became my favorite band. Not only for the great songs but the memories of hanging out there with all of my family. Every time Boston is played Ill smile and remember Family and good times together.

    I am very sorry to hear this news. I worked with Terry at Windquest a few years before his retirement. Maybe 10 years ago now? We shared some great laughs and he made my days in that factory a little more bearable. I was in my early 20s then and have often thought about him throughout the years. He told me a Vietnam story about a friend of his that was firing (or maybe Terry was) out the window of a car they were riding in. One of the spent casings flew back and went down his friends shirt, burned his nipple pretty bad and he got a Purple Heart. Lol! Terry also had a little parlor trick at work where he would bet people he could pick up a dime with his forklift. Nobody would believe him but then hed lay his fork over the dime and scrape back and it would flip up onto the fork. Thats was always a fun prank to play on the new guys. Terry had a contagious laugh and I absolutely loved his contempt for authority. Our friendship has always had a special place in my heart. Im so sorry for your familys loss. I know Ill never forget him. Rest In Peace my friend.
