He received his undergraduate and Masters Degrees from Pan American College and later received his Doctorate Degree from Texas A&M University. Terry was a very proud Texas Aggie. His loyalty to the Aggies was one of his endearing trademarks. To know Terry was to know and appreciate his loyalty to Texas A&M, a room temperature Dr. Pepper, and a good Hershey chocolate.

He went on to serve as administrator of several schools in the Premont, Texas area, He was a very active and beloved official for football, basketball, baseball and softball for many years. After retiring from education, Terry continued to officiate. He was passionate and dedicated to his love for all sports and stayed on the field as long as he could. lt was shortly before he was admitted to Amara that he officiated his last game. Those who knew Terry well, knew that he was a man of strong convictions. He was a Pro-Life advocate and fought tirelessly for his causes. He joined his friends in praying the Rosary for the unborn children every Friday morning. He served on the Board of Directors for the McAllen Pregnancy Center.
