Barb, Terry almost always had a smile on his face. He was fun to work with and fun to be around. He visited with Dave when Dave was down and Terry brought him up with talk of their common interests. And Terry always brought a jar of hot mustard!. I know, for you, Terry will be absent, but always dear!

I'll always have good memories of working at Dana with Terry, he had a soft heart, soft spoken, and never wanted any attention but was always there to help in any way he could. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, remembering a great guy.
