In addition to his professional career at the dairies and brick company, Terry loved tending to and working on his wife’s family farm in Oldtown Valley. He was also a supportive father always present at his children’s activities and loved sports, especially golf and basketball.

I am so sad to hear of Terry's passing. I am a lifelong friend of the Stocker family through one of my best childhood buddy's, Kevin. I spent many a day playing over at the Stocker house and always looked up to Terry as a friend and wonderful example of a young man. I was always welcome to the Stocker house and cherish many memories of that. My Condolences to the family and friends of Terry. Sincerely, Bill Showers
