The grandson of H.B. and Mary Cutchall and Jack and Bernice Reid.  He is the brother of Janice Reid Donahoue .

Terry was a Boy Scout. He missed his eagle badge because he helped his grandfather on his bee ranch in

the summer.  Baptized in April 1973. He was a member of the Northwest Missionary Baptist Church in

He joined the Navy April 27, 1970.  While stationed in Idaho Falls, Idaho, his son Stephen Dewayne was born September 3. 1971.

Terry was a dedicated husband and father.  He asked for duty stations that kept his family in the Charleston area. He retired from the Navy March 31, 1991.  He was nuclear powerplant operator on submarines in the Navy. A calibration tech in retirement. His workplaces included: MI-TECH, Longview Inspection Calibration Lab, Force Protection, and AppMett.    The staff at AppMett were like a second family to him.

He loved hunting and fishing, camping, and working with his hands. He was a member of the Circle S Hunting Club. He loved to donated venison to the local hunger program.

When he was diagnosed with Renal Cancer in 2016, he put himself in God’s hands—and there he stayed.

Everyone was amazed at his attitude and his positive optimism. He never met a stranger and believed in helping everyone.  He was truly an inspiration.
