As per his request, a private graveside funeral will be conducted. Terry was a faithful servant of the Lord and said “The only thing that matters is I was faithful, it doesn’t matter what someone says at my funeral, and my fate is already sealed.”
Terry was loved by so many due to his friendly, fun loving nature, his servant’s heart, and his signature laugh. He had a way of just making people happy and bringing comfort as well as having people in tears from laughter.
He was an amazing father and Papaw and he will be greatly missed. His family finds strength in knowing he is with the Lord.
