Dale we are deeply sorry to hear of Terry's passing. We only knew him for a short time but he was a amazing fellow. Enjoyed our little talks with him and I always enjoyed his support and praise when he stopped by when I worked on my projects. We will miss him. God Bless my friend R.I.P.

Tom & I fondly remember Terry as father in law to our son, Tom and friend to us. He was a great guy with a good sense of humor. We always tried to meet up with Dale & Terry when they would come to Virginia to visit the kids and grands. We will miss our dinners together.

There are way to many fun times shared with Terry and Dale over the last 20 years but our trip to Alaska was exceptional. Terry and I gave each other a lot of hell over different things all in fun. I will miss him dearly, he was always eager to go to the rv surplus places or eat :) His memory always amazed me as he could spout off roads and names of places from 20 years ago. Farewell my dear friend, I will greatly miss you so much. Your buddy Slacker,

My wife Rhonda and I were fortunate to be neighbors with Terry and Dale for over 9 years, while we all lived in Mooreland, Indiana. We were like Ricky and Lucy and Fred and Ethel, back and forth to each others homes for coffee, meals, conversations, etc. I can recall many a New Years Eve parties at the Paces, with lots of great food, fellowship and fun. We even began raising our kids together, such great memories. Terry was great with just about any tool, and could do just about anything when it came to home renovations, and Terry was always great to teach me different skills I needed for work around my home. We helped each other throughout the years at numerous jobs around both of our homes. For some reason Terry liked to call me "Lizard" or Lizzie", and I don't know how that came about, but it's something I will always hold dear. We will miss you my friend, and will always hold you close to our hearts. Love you man!!! Larry and Rhonda.

My wife and I met Terry and Dale, virtually, about 15 yrs or so ago. We were full time RVers as were Terry and Dale. While RVing, our paths never crossed but we kept up the electronic dialogue. After my wife passed almost 9 yrs ago, Dale and Terry visited deep south FL, squeezed their Phaeton into a spot at Collier-Seminole State Park and visited me. Enjoyed so much meeting them both in real life and their visit was so kind and so typical of the folks I knew.

My condolences to you Dale and may you RIP, Terry.
