I was blessed to have a friendship with Terry. I enjoyed a lot of time at Jack Price's house making music with him. Thoughts and prayers for the family.

We played many, many music jobs together starting in about 1986. He was always the band "clown' and would keep us all laughing with his witty, dry sense of humor. We spent a lot of time "on the road" with the band. You will be missed my musical brother.
