In his younger years, Terry drove stock cars for several years and even drove with his son for a couple of years. After Terry quit racing, he always continued keeping up with the races. He also loved watching NASCAR on television. Terry enjoyed sports to the fullest. He coached "The Misfits" traveling softball team for several years. Being out on the field with his team, made his day complete. When his son started playing ball, Terry never missed a game. Terry and Diane spent many days out at the softball fields, together. Terry was an avid Deer Hunter. He could stay out in the woods all day hunting and had several trophies to prove it. His family was what Terry's life revolved around. The grandchildren especially held a special place in his heart. Being a clown at heart, you could always find Terry brightening someone's day. He was such a fun loving and caring person.
