Terry was a 1970 graduate of Winfield City High School and a retired Vestavia Fire Fighter. Terry was an ordained minister; he loved the mission field, ministers, and church.

Terry loved turning one-liners with a few wise cracks thrown in, antics, and practical jokes. All of this in good fun of course, most of the time that is! Terry loved fishing and hunting, Alabama football, President Donald Trump, and Terry loved his MAMA! If you knew him, you would know, that no matter what stage of life or what kind of struggles he seemed to be facing, whether it be physical, financial, the loss of a loved one, or otherwise, Terry Loved Life!
