  • I am so sorry my prayer goes up for family and friends he will be greatly missed . I prayer for comfort to everyone

  • Many fond memories in my younger days as we played in the areas behind your parents house on Channing Street. Please rest peacefully cousin and your family will be in my prayers.

  • As the youngest of four brothers, Terry may have been the “baby” in our family but he was a giant in our eyes. He had a kind heart and gentle spirit and always put others before himself. In their later years, he took amazing care of our parents, making sure they could comfortably live out their lives in their own home, surrounded by loved ones. I have no doubt he got the warmest greeting you could ever imagine from them when he peacefully passed and arrived in heaven Wednesday and that the Lord will have already commended him on race well run!

  • Dear family,
    May he rest in peace. He was always a nice guy. May God wrap you in his arms of love and give you peace and comfort.
    Love Judy Thompson, Tim Thompson and Tami Grubbs

  • My cousin, Terry, lived across the street from us. I will always remember the great time that we had playing games with him and my brothers. He was a giant and we always idolized him. We will miss him in this life but we are looking forward to seeing him and the rest of the family in heaven. God Bless

  • I am so sorry for the Jacksons family’s loss.
    I went to school with Terry and I remember him as always being a sweet and gentle person. I remember going over to
    Herman and Vangie’s house as kids with my parents Harvey and Carrie Phelps and all of us playing outside while dad and Herman would play music together and mom and Vangie would visit together and look at Vangie’s doll collection, which to me as a little girl was absolutely amazing. Terry will truly be missed, but oh what a glorious day it will be for him to walk through those pearly gates and there waiting for him is God and his loving parents and family.🙏🙏🙏🙏 May God Bless the Jackson family.

  • Too young!sure he will be greatly missed! He was part of a great family,loved by all
    The Phelps family

  • I owe a lot to Terry. When dad had a debilitating stroke, he became his primary care giver. I remember him physically carrying dad from room to room. After dad passed, Terry became moms care giver and companion. The last years of her life were an incredible challenge for him. He dealt with her growing senility with caring and understanding. I don’t remember him ever complaining. He was a very special person, and will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Brother.

  • Dear Randi and Damon, Corine and Kylie, I am so sorry for your loss and please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all as you grieve your loss. Love Uncle John
