  1. Terry was a kind person. I’ve known him for around 20 years. My son Marty always admired Terry. I send his wife Barbara and family my sincere sympathy because to lose Terry Johnson, was losing a wonderful friend an kind soul. His family has had to endure entirely too much grief. Bless them and keep them safe. Love, Cheri Swales

  2. Terry and I were the best of friends in High School in Burlington Iowa. I lived right down the street from the Johnson’s. We always enjoyed plaing Basketball, bumper-pool and ping pong together. I was always amazed on how Terry could draw concept cars; they were always high tech and really cars of the future. Terry loved the famiy dog, Jocko, such a fun loving dog, and a great hunter. Mike Briear and myself went up to Wisconsin to see the Johnson’s after they moved, and we had a great time with Terry. I will always remember the time I spent with Terry, even when we were just bumming around Burlington. Terry was a super guy, and a friend that I never will forget. Steven Lebeck

  3. Dear Caren and family,
    In your time of sorrow and great loss please know there are so many who mourn with you and wish we could give you comfort.
    Carol Walters Keller

  4. Bobbie, Joyce & Caren,
    Our thoughts & prayers are with you. I have fond memories of Terry when I was young and looked up to him as the big cousin. We wish we were able to be there.
    Mark & Karla

  5. Terry was certainly a talented and ingenious gentleman. Our love and prayers are with all of you at this time.

  6. Terry was a fantastic man! He was always so genuine. We always knew that he loved and cared about all of us so very much. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with you at this time. (From his nephew’s family in Indiana)

  7. We lived many miles across country from Terry so we seldom saw him, but I am recalling him as a little boy. I stayed with him when Joy was in the hospital during Carens birth. A sweet little boy who would strive to please. A loveable and beautiful child who grew into a gentlemanly adult. How very sad we are at his passing.

  8. We are so sorry for the loss of Terry.
    He was such a kind gentleman and we thought so much of him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  9. One of the facts of life that we learn is that ‘life is what happens to you while you are making other plans’. Time and circumstances again keep us from being where and doing what we would prefer. Our sincere condolences and best wishes for you go with our presence in spirit as our family must carry on through the loss of another member too soon.
    Bob & Sharon Doe & Family

  10. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I did not see Terry often but when I did see him his friendship and kindness was alway present.

  11. To Terry’s beloved family, what a gifted man he was, and what a great loss to you.

    I know that you are grieving, but I know that along with the grief you are so grateful to have had him in your lives. That is a measure of the importance of his life, and the love that he inspired: that in the end, people feel grateful to God that Terry lived, and that they knew him & loved him. May God take care of you. Linda Pilkington

  12. We can’t possible say how sorry we are. Wish we could be with you, but not possible at this time. Will see you all at a later date. Just know that you have our prayers as does Terry, my precious nephew.
    Love, Aunt Wanda and Dave
