Terry was a dedicated and productive member of the Board of the Greater Wall Lake Association. Walleye stocking and Kayak The Wall are two lake activities that he was responsible for, and particularly proud of. Terry was a gentleman and a delight to work with. Terry loved Wall Lake and he will be missed by many.

Terry is a wonderful neighbor! My first memory of Terry and Helen goes back to when we first moved to the lake to live in the house that Al's father built. We joined them at their bonfire one night, roasting marshmallows. A few days later they came by with three of the bonfire forks as a gift. Apparently, the forks had been left in their house by the previous owners, and they wanted to share their excess. It was a small gesture but established their love and warmth for their neighbors and community. Terry cared about the lake and shared Al's dedication to preserving the natural resource we all share and desire to build the community. We will miss Terry greatly.

Terry was a thoughtful and dedicated person. His contributions as a board member on the Greater Wall Lake Association over the years was a tribute to his love of the lake and it’s environment. I am honored to have known Terry and will certainly miss him. Our thoughts to his wife and family. His life was cut short far too soon.
