thanks to linn cariffe terry has a memorial stone placed at the war memorial building in south pasadena. R.I.P. OLD FRIEND I WISH YOU WERE STILL AROUND TO GO SHOOTING AND BIRD HUNTING WITH........

Terry , to the best of my understanding , died when his patrol boat was blown up by a command detonated I.E.D  Possibly a  500lb American bomb. I believe he was sleeping below decks and died instantly ,never knowing what hit him, I was told this by a classmate a few years ago. Sadly i have forgotten who it was.

Can't believe so many years have passed.  Just yesterday I was thinking of the fantastic mile high strawberry pie your dad the chef used to make and our friends would gobble down. Rest in Peace old friend. You are missed.

I went to church with Terry and his family for many years. I remember him as a fun loving, active guy who was a much liked "member of my family". I still see his sister Karen '66 and her husband Rich and thier Daughter and her family. Great people and glad to have them in my life for 50 years. There is never a Memorial Day that passes without me thinking of the sacrafice Terry made for all of us. Rest well old friend, Sincerley, Tom Halleran '66

Terry and I were in Vietnam at the same time, both in the 101st Airborne Division.  He was with E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Infantry.  I was with 3rd Brigade Aviation, a command and control unit that basically spent days flying battalion and company commanders to, from, and above ground operations.  We were assigned to the 506th and two other battalions of the 101st.  I didn't see Terry in Vietnam.  I had no idea he was there until I read the In Memory section.  For those who might wonder, Terry was killed in Quang Tri Province, which was in the northern sector of what was then South Vietnam--commonly called I Corp, just south of the DMZ.  He was a combat infantryman.  Information available says he was a ground casualty, killed by an "other explosive device."  That could be anything from a hand grenade, mine, or rocket propelled grenade to some kind of IED.  It was and still is distressing to think he died in Vietnam.  To me, he'll always be the way he was when we were young and living life at SPHS.

Terry was a wonderful friend, church partner and co-cook. I remember him keeping a lobster alive in the  bathtub for the dinner he prepared for us. We exchanged several letters during his deployment which are still in my bible. He is missed and always thought of lovingly for his friendship and sacrifice.  Miss you. Pat
