Terry was a lifetime resident of the West Side of Binghamton, He was one who was not afraid to give his opinion on any matter, and to stand for what he believed in.
His quick wit and humor were unparalleled. He had a big heart always willing to help those in need especially the underdog. Terry taught school for 15 years mostly at the Susquehanna Valley Home. He followed that with a career in finance at the Legends Group, and being part owner of several local businesses. He was involved in playing and coaching local softball a sport he loved. In the seventies and eighties he could be found at the YMCA playing basketball and handball. His love of sports led him to have a celebration of every major sporting event. At those events he invited the chosen 100 whom he lovingly referred to as his squares.
His family would like to thank Lourdes Hospice, and those who were close friends who helped in his care taking, Jim Cucci, Phil Whalen, Michelle Wilber Warner, Brent Benkovic
