Terry was born October 23, 1940, to Blume and Elleen Roth in Flint. After graduating from Flint Northern High School, he proudly served in the U.S. Navy.

Terry was an avid fisherman throughout his life and was always ready with a good story and a cup of decaf.

Terry took pride in his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren; and would drive to Ohio and Indiana to see their milestones. “Let us endeavor so to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry”.-Mark Twain
