  Terry loved to work. He retired from Blythe Development in 2009, and went on to retire from Miller Pipeline in 2019. Terry had a lifelong love of Ford vehicles; especially his many trucks and Mustangs.  A master mechanic, if it had a motor, Terry could fix it.  He loved the outdoors and camping; even serving with his wife as state officers for the Good Sam Camping Club for many years. He and his wife enjoyed western square dancing and traveling together. After settling into their dream home on Lake Norman, Terry said it was like being on vacation every day. Terry was an active member of Unity Presbyterian Church in Denver, NC and volunteered his time to mentor youth as an Assistant Scout Master for Troop 707. Terry leaves a legacy of love, character and faith. He will be sorely missed, but even as we grieve, we are comforted that his soul is at rest and we will see him again.
