Terry Bob attended school at Gum Springs through the eighth grade and then graduated from Gore High School. At age 21, Terry Bob served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Seattle Washington Mission. He served in both Idaho and Washington states. After his mission, he moved to the Seattle/Tacoma area and then returned to the Gore area 18 years ago after the death of his father. Terry Bob worked in the food processing and construction industries and then moved onto the moving and storage industry where he moved household goods and for the past few years in logistics transportation. He has made a lot of friends in that business and when told of his death, many have mourned the loss of a friend and "a good guy to work with." When driving a truck long haul, it was not uncommon for Terry Bob to have one of his cousins, nephews, brothers, and even his mother on trips with him. It gave him the opportunity to have them with him and also for them to earn some extra money by helping him load and unload the truck. His mother enjoyed the time that she was with him because it gave her the opportunity to visit relatives that lived out of state and also visit Temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He loved to spend his off time visiting Church History sites when he was near them.
Terry Bob loved sports and especially football, baseball, hunting, and fishing. He was passionate about baseball and football. He also loved to watch movies and would become so engrossed in them that he was oblivious to what was happening around him. It was enjoyable listening to his brothers and sister tell about how good he was playing baseball and other sports. He loved to wrestle with his brothers and played many practical jokes on them.
Terry Bob was very family orientated and was always concerned about his immediate family and extended family. He maintained friendships with those that he worked with and met on his mission some 35 years ago. He would go by friends and relatives homes while he was on his truck driving trips and has been known more than once to help out those friends that were in need. He was generally concerned about everything relating to his friends and family. Terry Bob was a hard worker and a good provider for his family. Many times he would not want to leave home but would do so because he knew what his obligations were to provide the best he could for his family. He was a compassionate person and would be there for you if you needed anything or just someone to vent to.
He is going to be missed a lot. Many people have been affected by his life and his good works and he will be missed by family and friends alike. But those memories will only fade when we choose not to remember them.
