Terry McCollom

July 29, 1940 - March 19, 2021

Terry and I didn't know each other in high school, although I knew his parents. We met in San Francisco in 1962, while he was serving in the Air Force, and were friends up to his passing following post-op complications. 

Terry was in a profession that allowed him to travel extensively and meet many different people who became long-lasting friends over the years, up until his retirement about four years ago. In later life Terry developed a passion for group exercises and could always be found at the gym where he kept up with anyone half his age. 

Over the years Terry and I lived in different states, but always kept in touch and sometimes were able to visit during one of our travels. Terry was a kind and caring person and always had a good word about any of his friends. He was a loving father who delighted in telling you about his daughter, Nancy and wife, Barbara, of Texas. He will be missed by many and those who knew him had met a genuine human being.
