Terry was a hard-working man who worked as a construction manager for many years and served proudly in the United States Army. He was a devout member of Zion Lutheran Church and married the love of his life, Kathleen Hunn, in 1979. Terry was fond of being out in nature where he loved to fish, hike, collect walnuts to give to friends, and experience God’s many creations. He enjoyed woodworking, photography, reading, and was a talented poet. Terry enjoyed playing word games and always had the upper hand in a game of cribbage. Most importantly, Terry knew his place in this universe and excelled at showing God’s love by helping anyone in need. His family meant the world to him and he would do anything to show his love and support. Terry will be missed greatly by his loving family and many friends.
