Terry was very involved with the American Legion at the softball and baseball fields in Buford throughout the 1970’s while his 3 children played ball and taking the job as umpire at the ballpark (as no one else wanted it). During the 1990’s he had the pleasure of being Santa in the Buford Christmas Parade for several years. Terry and his wife Ruth were one of the founding families of Prince of Peace Catholic Church. Terry sang in the church choir for many years. He loved spending time with his family, especially his brothers and sisters.
