Saddened to learn of Terry's passing. Not living in Taylorville means I don't always hear of the passing of classmates. Terry and I started first grade together at St. Mary's School and were classmates through high school graduation. We lived only three houses apart on Illini Drive all those years. May God grant him eternal rest.

Terry was a good friend and always a pleasure to watch during his baseball pitching days.

Terry was a classmate and a friend. Always ready with a friendly greeting as though we had only talked yesterday . I saw Terry a couple of months ago at Kroger's and we reminisced about the old days playing baseball and basketball in the park. When you get to be my age, stop and say hi to an old acquaintance, it may be the last time. And it leaves a warm spot in your heart to fill the inevitable void left when someone passes. I'm glad I made the effort and I'm sure Terry did too.
