    Terry will be missed deeply. I have so many memories of him from our sitting down at a restaurant drawing a cement plant on a napkin to actually building it. He was the only man that I knew that had such a vision and actually did it. I miss him so much! Kurt

    When I moved to Florida in 1992. I got a job at B.E.t.er Mix. With no mixer experience Terry was willing to train me. I drove mixer,rock truck dump truck and flatbed for Terry off and on for more than 6 years. He was the hardest working boss I have ever had the priveledge to work for. May he rest in peace. SARGE

    As my dad’s longest and closest friend, Terry was a fixture throughout my life. His mild manner and unassuming presence made him such a pleasure to be around. He will be missed. Thinking of all of you and wishing for brighter days as you remember the love of a great man.
