  1. Cathy, our thoughts and prayers go out to you. We will miss Terry so much. He was such an awesome friend and person. If you need anything, please give us a call.

  2. I met Terry in 1965, him and Darrell were the first fiends Berton and I made when we moved to Lake Charles.We grew up on the same street, worked together at Crowley Maritime for 20 years, we ran a switch engine for a year at Canac inside Vista(Sasol), then the last eight at Turner. You should have witnessed him teaching me to drive an 18 wheeler, that was hilarious. We fished a lot and started The TMT Bass Club which is still going but under a different name. We also started a softball team there but that didn't last LOL. We watched our kids grow up together, laughed at the good times, and helped each other through bad times. I knew him as a good father to his children, good fisherman, and a good friend. I feel blessed to have had him in my life and know he will be missed by all, lucky enough to know him.

  3. Ms Ollie,Sarah, and all the family…so sorry I could not be there with you all…Terry will be missed by all that loved and knew him…..With heartfelt condolences….Love,Wanda

  4. Our Family is so sorry to hear of your loss.although we are far away and seldom see all of you ,we think of all of you often and feel like you are part of our family. Just wanted to sent our condolence and love.

  5. So Sorry to hear of the loss of your father. May the Lord continue to give you and your family faith and strength during this special time. God Bless all of You!

  6. Terry,We go way back… remember The Tree – a part of Sunset Acres none of us can forget. As young kids we gathered and did what we did best- be kids. As the years went by there were more than 20 to 25 of us from the neighborhood. We were young, had fun and enjoyed life. I will never forget walking to school in the morning and making it a point to walk by your house- more because I liked your brother than you- but to see your mother walk out and give you your daily money for lunch… of course we knew you were going to use it on cigarettes and either I or your brother would buy your lunch if you needed it!! And then walking home after school I would have to watch the torture you and Darrell would give Wanda by swinging and throwing her around. Those are the times I remember. I have been gone from your life for many years, but I never disconnected with you or your family. To your family… it will always be my family.You will be missed.

  7. We are so sorry to hear about your dad. Just remember all the memories and fun we all had during your softball years. We lost Mr. Billy 2 years ago this coming Saturday. Love You, JoAnne, Vernon, Billy Ray, and Krista

  8. WE ARE SO VERY SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. SUCH GOOD TIMES WERE HAD WHEN WE WERE ALL TOGETHER FOR ALL STAR BALL. ALL THAT TRAVELING AND FUN.SO SORRY THAT WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND THE SERVICES. WE ARE CURRENTLY AWAY FROM HOME FOR JAMIE'S WEDDING. PLEASE ACCEPT OUR SINCERE SYMPATHY.LINDA, JIM, KATINA AND REST OF FAMILY.
