Terry had co-owned American Central Airlines with his brother and American Ambulance with his wife. He was an active Mason, as a member of Gnemeth Lodge, York Rite, and Scottish Rite. He enjoyed reading, playing poker, and spending time in his RV. He also was a big fan of the Chicago Bears and NASCAR.

Terry was preceded in death by his parents.

Terry is remembered by his loving wife, Deborah; brother, Gary (Cora); sister, Judy (John) Sutter; nephew, Jonathan Hudik; mother-in-law, Donavee Smith; many other nieces and nephews; and his cat and three dogs.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to the Knights Templar Eye Foundation or the ARL.
