Most recently he served as an English teacher and basketball coach at The Patterson School, in Lenoir, N.C.

Terry was preceded in death by his parents, Fred and Goldie Truax, as well as his loving wife, Pam, of Carlsbad, New Mexico. He is survived by his son, Scott, and daughter-in-law, Deb; his son, Brad; and his daughter, Annie.

Terry will be laid to rest on Thursday, April 2nd, at a private ceremony at Cedar Lawn Cemetery, in Hagerstown, Md., followed by a memorial service at the Hancock United Methodist Church, 170 West Main Street, Hancock, Md., beginning at 1:00 p.m. There will be a condolence basket.
