Terry worked for 42 years at Champion Laboratories where he made many friendships. He was a big Star Trek fan and a collector of Star Trek memorabilia. Terry loved cooking the turkey for Thanksgiving dinner and a ham for the Christmas holidays. He enjoyed going camping and was a train enthusiast, especially the older ones. Terry enjoyed flying model helicopters and drones. He wasn’t a big sports fan, but he would sit with Billie to watch Cardinal baseball and enjoyed the game, especially when they were winning. Terry watched all types of movies and was a 70’s and 80’s rock and country music fan. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
