In his spare time, he enjoyed going fishing, trying to reel in the biggest catfish or working in his vegetable and flower gardens. Mr. Terry was an avid sports fan and always supported our Tennessee Titans. In quiet moments he loved to sit down and watch forensic shows on the ID Channel with his wife. He had a passion for life and never met a stranger. He enjoyed sitting down with everyone and telling stories of the past and watching the laughter that came from his storing telling.
Along with his mother he is survived by his wife Michelle Roberts Terry; a son Joshua Nickerson; a daughter; a sister Bonnie Terry; and a brother Charles Terry as well as several nieces and nephews.
There will be no services planned, for Mr. Terry’s wishes were to be cremated.
