He also enjoyed perusing garage sales and antique shows, putting together various model kits, playing cribbage every evening with his mother, spending time with his great-nieces and nephews, fishing with his daughter and granddaughter as well as trips to Beaver Lake in Arkansas to fish. He also had a gift of making people laugh. His faith in his loving and forgiving Savior Jesus Christ was very important to him.

Did not know Terry all that well, only through his time attending Assembly of God Church. He was always very pleasant and greeted everyone. Just wanted to let you know Cindy that our prayers are with you.

Our hearts are broken over the loss of one of the sweetest, wonderful men known. We admired his deep love for his mom and family. You are lucky if you were able to call him a friend.
Rest in peace "Bird"
