Those that know Terry will remember that his passions revolved around family, technology, and anything that allowed him to spend time on Seneca Lake with his wife Judy and family.
Terry grew up on Laurel Street in the Southside of Elmira with a large and loving family. When he met and fell in love with his future wife Judy Farr in 1976, Terry was still working on what he wanted for a career. He would later retell his children often that Judy consistently rebuffed his marriage proposals until one day, she informed him that she was not going to marry a man "that didn't wear a suit to work". It was soon after (very soon) that Terry launched a career in technology that not only required a suit, but would go on to become a lifelong passion. After living and working in Virginia for some years, Terry and Judy were able to start traveling extensively as his career took them to far corners of the globe. First moving to Australia where he worked for British Telecom, the family spent four years there making friends that have since become extended family and are part of their lives to this very day. After Australia, they spent six years in Hong Kong where Terry conducted business and traveled with his family all over the Pacific Rim.
With an empty nest, Terry and Judy embarked on their next adventure and bought the Seneca Clipper Inn in Watkins Glen, NY which they ran while Terry continued his career with IBM. Terry and Judy sold the Inn in 2004 which enabled them to turn their camp on Seneca Lake into their dream home where they have lived ever since.
In addition to being a great husband and father, Terry was the 1st Chair person of Schuyler County Lodging and Tourism Association formed in 2002, and was a Certified Project Manager for IBM Global Technical Services.
