    I believe that Terry inherited his father’s (Clem) sense of humour…. Clem was my “boss” at Roma Hospital Office.. 1956 to 1963….

    I vividly remember the last time I saw Terry. It was on a visit back to Roma with my parents about 1971, over 50 years ago. My father Royce had been Clem’s boss at the hospital 1956-1966, and they were great friends.
    I was an awkward young teen and Terry kindly engaged me in discussion. Once I said I’d started a rock collection Terry brought out his large rock collection to show me and a very animated one-sided conversation ensued. He showed his great great generosity by passing along his geological knowledge, as well as 2 of his beloved specimens to add to my collection. I remember the big lovely smile and twinkle in his eye, and there they still are in that beautiful photo.
    My sincere condolences to Brian and family.
