I was really surprised to hear of Terry's death. I  think I probably had a crush on him my whole childhood.  Our families were good friends--Our parents, and Marilyn Holman's parents all were close.  They would  get together for picnics on holidays and have dinner parties together. Terry's dad was a principal and his mom a teacher--Marilyn's dad was of course the Pattonville superintendent and her mom a math teacher before her death.  My dad was on the school board for 25 years.   Terry's oldest brother Eddie  was best friends with my oldest brother Bill and Marilyn's older brother Max.  Terry's sister Nancy  was friends with my sister Mary Jane and Marilyn's sister Sandra--and then there was Terry, Marilyn and me.  We would play cowboys and indians, go swimming--we had SOOO much in common---but Terry never got any of the signals I thought I was sending.  He was tall, slender and so good looking--a great athlete for sure.  But I really remember his  marvelous sense of humor--quirky but funny.  So sorry I won't get to re-connect with him at the reunion.

Terry was among the toughest, most resilient competitors I ever knew. Smart, talented, agile, and skilled at virtually anything he tried. He was an excellent leader in both football and basketball. I can remember many times where Terry’s leadership in tough situations helped us pull victory from defeat. He never gave up.

 

I still remember his often intricate, bizarre-looking, and very funny line drawings and cartoons (the look and feel of the Spy vs. Spy strip in Mad magazine)  that he was continually drawing while we were “studying”.
