    Terry was a wonderful asset to the Boise VA hospital, outpatient department & substance abuse program. His caring concern for all Veterans & their friends, & the VA staff was always there. I will miss him!

    I had the pleasure of knowing Terry through work at the Boise VA. His obituary states it well- he was an ardent advocate of veterans and a respected colleague. My sincere sympathy to his family and loved ones.

    My friend of nearly 50 years was a man of many stories, many faces, and many adventures. I had the privilege of his caring friendship through many ups and downs in our lives. He was a professional in his service to Veterans and his advocacy for them. . He was one of only a hand full of men I have ever met that truly had empathy and the ability to express his emotional depth. I loved Terry and he leaves a big whole in my heart.

    As strange as it may sound, Terry and I met through Craig’s list, as he was looking for a fellow retired M/C rider. We hit it off instantly and become good friends. Terry (or Doc) as we started calling him, began coming to our retired law enforcement coffee group. We all shared many a story and laugh with him. R.I.P. Doc. My condolences to Pat.

    I will miss you my friend but will remember how we talked and laughed. A man of true compassion and strength. To Pat whom I have never met, I am so verry sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing him in his counseling capacity. May he now Rest In Peace.

    Terry and I went to college at BSU at the same time. We also worked at the Y during those years. He often had a smiling smirch on his face and was always a great friend. We once painted a court at the Y with a very toxic paint. I painted over his hand by mistake and he spun the roller in my face. It took more time cleaning up the mess then it did painting. Another time, He went to play his first game of racquetball. His first swing took out a chunk of his own forehead and it was off to the emergency room for stitches. He will be missed. Condolences to his family.
