He once took two station wagons and welded the front of one to the back of another and we kids rode in style. Terry had numerous cousins, aunts, and uncles, nieces and nephews who thought he was the greatest. Before his passing there was a small get-together of some family and friends, it was a good send-off as Terry passed soon after.
