Terry attended school in Webb, Saskatchewan and then went to Gull Lake for High School. Terry married Wendy Taylor on August 2, 1969. Terry's life work was farming and ranching with cattle being the very closest to his heart. He took great pride in his herd of Simmental cattle, spending countless hours studying herd genetics to ensure an optimum calf crop. He kept mountains of catalogues for years and years - never throwing one out. Terry was a Sask Wheat Pool committee member for many years, serving out of the Webb branch. He coached boys minor ball for many years in Gull Lake, and then coached ladies softball also in Gull Lake. He did the books for the Clairbankview Hall for a few years. Baseball has lost it's biggest fan. Forever a Blue Jays fan following each and every game, either by radio, T.V., or Blue Jays in 30 if all else failed. He had a huge collection of baseball magazines and would spend hours on end writing and rewriting the stats for every teams players - not just the Jays. When the world series came around, he always predicted who would win, and he was nearly always right. Terry was our book of knowledge and there wasn't much he didn't know or remember. He was an avid reader and remembered everything he read. He loved to chat with everyone that crossed his path be it about sports, geography, religion, politics, mathematics, history, war, family tree, weather, seed varieties, cattle, commodity transportation, music, just to name a few. He could converse with anyone about anything.
