Terry was the Operations Freight Manager for FS in Bement for many years. He loved boating, fishing, and going on family vacations and trips. He loved to drive his semi and loved antique cars especially his own 1960 Ford Galaxy. He was a mister fix it and he loved to just go outside and as he would say, I’m outside piddling. His favorite love however, was spending time with his 3 granddaughters.
