Terry graduated from East Lynn High School and attended Illinois Business College. He retired from Thyssenkrupp after working there for many years. He was an avid Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, and Illini fan and enjoyed mushroom hunting, riding motorcycles, and the occasional good cigar. Most of all Terry loved spending time with family and good friends. He was a loving and kind man and spent the last years of his life surrounded by grandchildren; they were his world. His grandson Kyle was his protector, he always took care of his grandpa. Terry will be missed dearly by so many friends and family.
