Terry was a great guy.....I worked with him at Abbott Ambulance when he was with St Louis County PD.

He was always ready for the game, a practical joker.....always had his partner's back.

Some years later I ran into Terry at the ST Louis PD when taking a ATF Bob and Arson class. He had gone over to Jefferson County.

A temendous loss to the community and friends and family.

RIP Terry!
