Terry passed away on July 23rd. I know many of you have talked to him over the years and will miss him. I just found out today, after not getting a response to a message I had sent a couple weeks ago. I became concerned and found out that his passing had already occurred. Apparently he collapsed at a grocery store.
I know many here will miss him.

I think this video is appropriate, as it was the reasoning behind his online handle.
I can't believe it.

I had the pleasure of meeting Terry in 2004 at a hockey tournament in Winnipeg and had a great chat with him. I am very saddened by his passing. He was laid off in January and was enjoying his severance package.

I can't believe it.

I will always remember him when I hear that song.

Take care my friend.

Love this Erfus, and thanks to Lou for a great idea. This season is Terry's.
You know, oddly enough, this is a band of brother and sisterhood. I'm both completely stunned, and touched -- all at the same time. There is connection here. Godbless.

Wild. I'm part of the old usenet crowd where Terry posted until this site caught on 3-4 years ago. On aug 2, relatives of Terry's posted his obit in alt.sports..... i didn't put his usenet and hfboards threads together till now. Just for "fun" looked up Terry's last post...here it is...(ironically in regards to KPD's mother passing away). Posted July 23, day Terry died.

Condolences to KPD and family

Ok, step by step, how does an IT knucklehead like me get that avatar for me? Even if I never get it posted, great job. Thanks.

shocking news; just a quick story on Terry. I used to read him on ESPN boards before he came over here. I never posted there but I remember some of his posts really cracking me up, and figuring out we were of similar age and interests from his posts. When he came here he did not hit it off so I started PMing him and we moved past the Bruins stuff into our love of dogs, music, etc...and I thought this is one pretty cool guy and told him give HF another shot. I'm glad he did. God Bless you.

God Bless Terry, as a fellow resident of the Peg and as Paramedic I never knew this was you in this situation. But my friend Lance, recalls as he arrived on scene. You always were helpful and open to me and you shared a passion for the love of our Bruins.

The world is a little less perfect at your untimely loss. But Heaven just gained one hell of a character. God speed my internet friend.

I to will miss him, although I never new him as Terry, just the guy with the Davey avatar who brought it every time he posted.

My father-in-law died suddenly years ago, while changing a tire. He went the way he wanted, quick, with no fuss and no tubes and needles and hospital crap. Better that than languishing in sickness for months of agony.

But sadly, when someone leaves suddenly, you do not have the time to tell him how much fun it has been to have him around.

But we all know. We miss you Terry, and for this season at least, we will be thinking of you after every game.

I have printed off the blessings from all of you so far. I will be sending them off tomorrow. As of the post before mine.If anymore come in I will forward them as well.(in about a week). I think it will be of some comfort to his wife to know how loved he was here. I will keep you all informed if I get any feedback.

Love to all,
Jay~MH1

Thanks Jay.

I think it's really nice of you to do this.
I'm sure his family will appreciate it.

What a great guy. I had more than a few nice exchanges with him over at the ESPN Boards. His presence was extremely noticable over there, particularly when he left. I've only recently wandered over here, and it says a lot about him that he had the same positive effect here as well. The obit showed he was truly as great a person as he seemed to be.

RIP, buddy. RIP.
