  • Hi to Terry’s family. My deepest sympathy to you all.
    I use to be the receptionist in the athletic’s department at Otterbein for years. Being in that position I had the opportunity to talk to a lot of people. In all the years I worked with Terry he always had a smile on his face and he would sing one of his corny songs to me. Trust me, I could write a book on all the noises, songs, and stories I heard from people over a period of 20 years 😂. It was great. Terry was always willing to help with anything if someone needed help. He was just a nice, kind man. When I heard he died I immediately got a heavy heart. The earth lost a good man, but heaven gives him rest and peace. God bless his family during this difficult time. God seems to take the good ones too soon ☹️. 💕Beth Fitzgerald

  • As a youngster I played little league baseball and also worked with Terry at the old Sunbury IGA. Although I haven’t seen him in many years, I will always remember his infectious laugh and uplifting personality.

  • We enjoyed growing up together in Sunbury and played ball all through those years. I have been gone from Sunbury since the late ’60’s and had the pleasure of seeing Terry and Linda at several Big Walnut Class of 66 reunions. My prayers go out to the family and my memories will be of a guy “always smiling and enjoying life”
