My heartfelt love and sympathy to all family and friends. Uncle Terry was truly one of the kindest people I know. I loved to go visit him when I went to Firth. His face just lit up with happiness when he talked about his children and grandchildren. What a gifted carpenter he was. Love you Uncle Terry. Thank you for your example of patience, love, and enduring in faith.

Most of my memories of Terry are as a small child. He was such a cute little boy and had a happy smile all the time. I am so sorry he had to suffer like he did and thank all those who cared for him so tenderly. Your lovely service was a beautiful and loving tribute to him.

My sincere sympathy to Terry's family at this time. Working with Terry at the OLCC was always a pleasure and talking and laughing with him at coffee breaks was a daily ritual. He could be so funny; I remember one time at the table we noticed he had ripped the seams out of the sleeves of his short-sleeved sport shirt. When asked about it, he looked innocently at us, with a big grin, and said that his muscles had gotten too big for his shirt, so instead of buying a larger shirt, he just opened the sleeve seams to "my arms aren't so crowded"! He could always make us laugh. His passing is a true loss.

To Shawn and Kristan and family of Terry Child. We just heard of your Dad's passing. We send our heart felt condolences to your families. We are proud to call him a friend for over 50 years. We'll always remember his smile and gentile nature and the hit he put on me on the football field in Hight School. Its been 50 years, I still feel it today. Our hearts and prayers are with you always. Julie and Ron Hendricks
