He married his wife Brenda (Hevey) on August 25, 1973, and shared almost 44 years of marriage with her. During which he worked as a foreman at the City of Dubuque for 42 years before retiring in March 2016. They raised a daughter, Leigh (Steve Fara) together and enjoyed many joys in life as a family.

Terry was a man who loved to make others smile. He was a joker with a truly generous heart and a laugh that was contageous. He loved taking his Harley for rides, spending time with great friends and family, golfing, and taking his dogs for daily rides and walks. His true happiness came in spending time with his grandchildren, Logan and Skylar.
