Palmyra:  Was born on March 8, 1950 and passed away from a heart attack on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the age of 67.  Terry was predeceased by his parents Roland C. and Mary M.

Terry grew up in Aurora, Colorado.  As a youngster, Terry was involved with scouting and achieved the honor of Eagle Scout and would continue to live by that "code" for the remainder of his adult life.  He worked as a teenager plowing thousands of acres of farmland and at S&H Green Stamps.  He served his country through the United States Navy during the Vietnam War.  Later, he worked repairing, and selling, appliances, the automotive paint industry and would go on to work for Constellation Wine Brands Company having retired five years ago.  Terry was a man of great faith.  He enjoyed his immediate and extended family members.  He loved children and animals.  Terry always had a story to share and would make friends wherever he went.  He will truly be missed by all.  He leaves a legacy of love, kindness, compassion, honesty and humility. He touched the lives of all those he met.  Our hearts are broken.
