Memories Timeline


  1. I am so sad to hear this news. Terry was such a nice guy. Years after graduation I met him and he was the same ole’ Terry. Lisa and family, Brenda and family, each of you are in my prayers for comfort and strength.

  2. Lisa, Arian, and Bethany, We are very sorry for your great loss. We will be praying for all of you and your family. Terry was such a kind and generous man, he will be missed.

  3. No one can truly understand how difficult this time is for you, but you have our love and prayers. Victor and Pam Cart❤️

  4. On behalf of the Clifford family our most sincere sympathies to Ms. Lisa and your family. Please know you all are in our best thoughts and prayers. regards, Jake and Pat Clifford

  5. Lisa, Arian, and Bethany: I have been praying for Terry and for a different outcome. I have been thinking of the song that he sang a couple of times at church: "I’m So Tired of Being Moved but Never Changed." He did a beautiful job and the song meant a lot to me. May God comfort you as you get over the shock of his death—so sudden and for one so young.

  6. Arian I am so very sorry for your loss. Please know I’m here if you need anything I’ll be praying for all of you

  7. I felt like someone kicked me in the gut when I saw Bethany’s post. Thirty plus years of nothing but positive memories. Your beautiful singing at my wedding, the countless pranks we pulled on each other, the crazy nicknames for each other. You will be so greatly missed. I love you.

  8. We are saddened by your loss. Terry was a bright spot in our day on many occasions and we will miss him. Our prayers are with you all.

  9. Terry, or “T” as I affectionately called him, was a great friend for many years. He called me Chuck. I choose to remember all the good times we shared together, Kiwanis Barbeques, Quarterback Club Activities, playing golf, or going to JHS Football Games together. I was very fortunate to sit next to him as he announced for the bulldogs at Jerry Simmons Stadium for decades. A task that he was very accomplished at and enjoyed. He was definitely a “Bulldog”. “T” was generous with his time and talents as he hosted many Bulldog Banquets, and even acted as the concierge for the 1992 State Football Team. “T” loved his family. He told me often how much he loved Lisa, Arian and Bethany. He was proud of them. The “T” I knew was just a good and caring person. Who was a prankster and fun to share time with. I wish we all had more time with him. I love you man. “Chuck” Lisa, Arian and Bethany may God bless and comfort you in your time of loss.

  10. My heartfelt condolences go out to all of you in your time of such great loss. Terry’s journey Home has been made and may you find comfort in knowing this. I pray for God’s peace and strength for the days ahead as you all find your way on earth without your precious one beside you.

  11. I am so sorry for your loss. God has plans to soon rid this world of all suffering forever and reunite us with our loved ones that have fallen asleep in death. Revelation 21:4 states: “And he will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” May the God of all comfort help you to endure during this difficult time, remember to “throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you,” (Psalms 55:22).

  12. Dear Royer Family, I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, never forget God cares for you. Rely on him during this difficult time and he will comfort you.2Corinthians 1:3,4 says “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.” Put trust in the Bible’s promises, Jehovah God tells us that in the future here on earth we can welcome back our loved ones by means of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15)

  13. Dear Lisa & girls, our hearts go out to u! Know that Terry will b missed by many. We were only n Jennings 2 yrs but they were good &Terry was such a big supporter! Terry was also a good friend to Kirby & he’ll never forget him. God bless ea of u!

  14. Lisa, Arian and Bethany, Terry was a very special person who brought smiles and comfort to everyone he spoke with. I am so sorry for your loss but I know Terry believed he will see you again and there will be no sorrow and pain in your reunion.
