Dear Kathy and family,
My heart felt condolences go out to you. I would see Terry first thing in the morning (7am), he would either be snow blowing out front, or checking the lights in our office.
He would always stop and say "Hi" then, Terry and I would get talking about one subject and end up into another subject, with many subjects in between. We would laugh at the end and wondered how we ended up with the last..as i'm sure you have many stories of your conversations. :-) The last one we held, we were discussing Covid, and our concerns, he expressed his concerns for you Kathy, that he was worried that the virus would hit you and felt that he was going to do all he could to keep you safe, as i'm sure he did. I will truly miss him, I will always cherish the palm tree/ocean painting he gave me, he was a great and interesting person. God bless you and your family, and I pray that he will keep you in his loving arms to help you get through this time of great sorrow. Sincerely, Linda Rugg

I just wanna reach out to the family. My name is Cody I've had the pleasure of working with Terry for the past two years. He was a hard working man who always told jokes and always had me laughing. I have a few painting from him he was an amazing artist! Such a terrible time to have to deal with this. May he rest in peace and may his family find peace. He will be missed.

Terry was one of those people that was universally liked. He could make you bust a gut laughing, made wonderful paintings for anyone who asked, always friendly. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever ran into Terry while he was in a foul mood. He was a good man with a big heart, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to have known him. I'll miss him.

Terry was an amazing grandfather and father figure, I could make a whole list and talk all day about everything He did with me and taught me. He was a great man that was always laughing and making jokes. Terry must have broken near every bone in his body but that never stoped him from doing the things he loved. I love him and can’t wait to share all the stories I have with and of him to his great grandkids, Thea and her brother or sister.

I meet Terry when he was 15 and I was 17. I dragged him all over the place. We rode Motorcycles, hiked together. We each went our different ways we never lost contact because he was more than a friend he was a brother to me. I could always call him and he would there for me. We would talk and laugh for hours on end about everything and nothing. I will miss him every day.

We love you all from the depths of our hearts.

Terry & Kathy have always been kind to us. When all the kids were little Jerry and I would visit them in Idaho and have all kinds of fun. Terry & his brother, Jerry, worked & laughed together, two peas in a pod. When we visited them in Florida, Jerry wasn’t doing well from cancer treatment. His brother, Terry, made him laugh & got him interested in painting. After we went back home Terry called his brother every few days. Jerry’s painting had to dry before we could take it home so Terry mailed it to him. I keep Jerry’s painting in my bedroom. Terry brought the personality out in Jerry. Now, I imagine them both cutting up together in heaven and continuing their laughter. I miss you both. Carolyn Stoddard
