  3. Our deepest condolences. I enjoyed Terry’s playful sense of humor while working at Mehlville. He had perspective that few others had because he had been with the district so long and knew so many people from the community. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

  5. Barb and family: We are so sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. Don thought so much of him when working together at Mehlville. He was always willing to jump in and help with anything. He will be missed by all who knew him and particularly his family who he was devoted to. Barb, you and the boys will be remembered by many during this difficult time.

  6. Terry was a prime example of a family man. His family came first. Terry was so kind and so very funny. He will be missed, but the memories are many. Terry you are in our prayers.

  7. John first met Terry when he began
    working part time in the Reference Room
    at St. Louis Public Library many years ago.
    He and wife Barbara have been valued
    friends ever since. Our condolences to
    wife Barbara and sons Terry and John

  8. Barb and family,
    My condolences to the family. Terry was my oldest son’s guidance counselor at Lindbergh High before we moved to NC. Barb, my love, thoughts and prayers are with you.

  9. I attended Mehlville High 1972-1973. Terry was not my consoler. We met 2019 when my girlfriend and I bought the house next door to him and Barb. We could not have asked for better neighbors. Terry will be missed. Love, Dave & Debbie.

  10. We always enjoyed visiting with Terry when our times at the lake coincided. He and Barb were such good neighbors. Barb, John and Terry, we are so sorry for you and your loss of such a good man. Sincerely, Jim and Sandy Farrell
