Terry and I were next door neighbors at an apartment complex in University Park in 1971. We were both fortunate to share an apartment with a beautiful women. Since we both played baseball in college, we often played catch in the parking lot and shared many meals together at The Highland Park Cafeteria...until Terry became famous and was bothered by autograph seekers during every meal. Will forever remember Terry as a class act and a good friend. It was an honor to be his friend...I have been blessed with his lasting memory. May God be with him and his family forever.

I am so very sorry to hear of Terry's passing. I remember him as a kind, intelligent, sweet person. I attended Willoughby South High school and graduated with Terry. I will always fondly remember Terry.

You were a best friend whom I could always count on being there when needed. I could talk for hours about the goofy stuff we did and the fun we had growing up in Willoughby. He always had the devil in his eyes and a great smile on his face. I will never forget our trip to Texas with Danny and Frank. Or, our motorcycle trip to the upper Adirondacks in New York where you tipped over the canoe in the middle of a lake and we lost our wallets and keys. We laughed so hard we almost drowned Rest in peace Terry. I have missed you. I hope down the road we will meet again old friend.
