Memories Timeline


  1. Terry,
    However brief, we spent some Great times on the “West Slope” in the old “Imp” & on sleds. The snow was deep, the weather cold and the work was – work. But you never lost your smile and that great Kentucky “We can do this” attitude. Your friendship is cherished, your love for nature is embedded and your passion for life is enlightening. I am thankful for the time spent together. You taught me well. They don’t make ’em like you anymore.
    Otis said it right, “I salute you as a Vet, I am honored by you as a fellow worker, I am a better person because of you.”
    May your family find God’s Peace, – See you on the “Other Side of the Creek”

    After having worked with you for three short years with the Bureau of Reclamation, I had never had such a friend for sixteen years of my life.
    You were one of the most memorable person’s that touched the lives of those that were ever took the time to know you! You went through some very trying times in life, being shot in the leg, bypass surgery, wife losing her leg, losing your wife in death then the final yours! Sir, I salute you as a Vet, I am honored by you as a fellow worker, I am a better person because of you! You calling me, laughing with me, your sharing with me in this travel though life!
