Michael and I were so sad to hear of Terry’s passing. Our prayers go out to your family and we only have good memories of Terry. He was a blessing to know.

I am deeply saddened to hear the news of my friend’s passing. Years ago I moved to Durham to start the police academy and Terry become one of my first friends. Later on in our careers I was fortunate enough to be able to work with him on the downtown bike unit. I have nothing but fond memories of us riding the trails to the mall, hanging out on the Ninth Street, and morning coffee at FJ’s emporium. I’ll miss him and I am so sorry for your loss.

My wife and I are still in shock. Unfortunately we cannot make it to the service but in no way should that be considered any indication of the loss we feel.
Terry was our neighbor at Oriental Harbor – he did the cleaning of my boat as needed and did a great job (hopefully you got the last check sent which was also the xmas gift I mentioned to Terry before he left for training)! He also watched over our boat – he was a very generous friend.
Fortunately, since we live in Wilmington, I was able to spend extra time with Terry prior to and after hurricane Matthew – he helped with getting it ready, we had breakfast together and had great conversations – from the very personal to the upcoming challenges of going overseas and away for extended periods of time . We tended to communicate often by texts.
He was one of the kindest, trustworthy, and reliable friends we had. We are without enough words or thoughts for the family in having to go through this great loss. HE WILL BE MISSED !!
We will try and do something at the marina for him – he has always been and will be in our thoughts!

Barry Lindholm and Neale Turlington (my wife)

Condolence from Mac and Sheila Ernest on December 21st, 2016 11:17 am

Sheila and I are very sorry we could not attend the service for Terry but want you to know how much he meant to us and the entire marina community at Oriental. Seeing him on his bike or at the dock chatting with friends was such a treat because he was always interested in others and how we were doing. He clearly put others first, was consistently available to help, and was a delight to be around. I always felt better after spending time with Terry. Our off shore boat trip to Florida was a real adventure (we went on Bill’s boat) and I so admired Terry for going to and returning from the Bahamas. He is our inspiration to do that this year (and his log book, which he shared with me has provided information and humor!).
We have lost a real treasure from our life.
We share your loss and will greatly miss Terry.
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.
Mac and Sheila Ernest
