I worked with Terry in the late 70’s when we were both part of the commissioning crew of the USS Eisenhower. He was a great guy to work with and have thought about him every now and then since. I’m sorry to hear he was taken from us; my prayers are with him and his family.

Terry was a nice person, and I enjoyed having the pleasure of working with him. I know he went through some tough times during his illness, but he is no longer in any pain, and he is in a much better place, and one day we will see him again. He will be greatly missed by his Atlantic Dominion Family.
