At a young age, Terry found a love in racing. He loved being at the track with his dad and later on with his family and friends.

He especially loved camping during the summer at the river (Deer Creek) with his family. Terry worked at TAP for several years as a mechanic. Before TAP he worked for Steven McCanless Trucking for 26 years. His blue Kenworth Truck was always his favorite. You could always find Terry with his Red Man Chewing Tobacco in his pocket, he never left home without it.
