Terry just celebrated 50 years as a Freemason, 32nd Degree. He was a retired pipefitter from Goodyear for 35 years. During Terry's midlife, he enjoyed riding his Harley all over the U.S.A. Most of all, he enjoyed family gatherings and liked to tell anyone how many grandkids and great grandkids he had.
Terry did not want a "funeral" so we're going to have a "gathering".
He is preceded in death by sisters Carolyn, Janice, and Mary Ellen.
Terry is survived by wife Deborah, sons Steven and Aaron, stepchildren Lisa (Joel) Robinson and Jeffrey Vaughan, brother Fred, brother-in-law Leonard Zittle, 8 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
