Hello Sherril. Sorry to hear of Terrys passing. I appreciate that you and Terry included me in two of your family functions. One was at Tommy D,s in Hanover and the wedding in London. He was always good to me and it was good of him to do that even thought he did not know me that well. I will be thinking of you and all of your family tomorrow. Dale.

Sherrill, John, Matt and family. So sorry to hear of Terry's passing. Glad I was able to talk to him on the phone the other day. He still had that chuckle and you could hear the pride in his voice when he talked of his family. Many fond memories of Terry and the old gang from Chatsworth.

Crotch was the first buddy of mine who had a remote for his TV, even if it did have a wire attached. We had lots of fun hanging around Chatsworth for years before I moved to Alberta. Even when Crotch hit the bridge during the spring flood, we all survived. Crotch never missed a Christmas phone call.
In the Chatsworth area this is the name he was known for and in Hanover he was known as Terry and loved by all.
Rest in Peace my friend,

Sherril, John, Matt and family,
A lot of my memories growing up Mac was there. My parents wedding, fire department functions, fish fry’s in the parking lot, legion ball with my dad, or later in life when I frequented the legion. Terry always gave me an update on John, Matthew over the years and just glowed when he was talking about his grandchildren.
Mac you will be missed by so many! Xoxo
