His favorite were trips to Myrtle Beach, ensuring he ate at Hamburger Joe’s several times each trip. He enjoyed Major League Baseball, NASCAR and was an avid Redskins fan. Last but not least, he loved John Wayne and Hallmark movies. His most favorite hobby was dining out and he really enjoyed when the waitresses knew exactly what he wanted to eat and had his glass of Chardonnay ready for him! He was “Uncle Terry” to many and godfather to James and Joshua Hemenway. Terry was a devoted husband and loved his family. He cherished his many dedicated friends. The family wishes to express deep gratitude to Dr. Banks Turner and staff, St. Mary’s CCU and Ultra Sound Teams, Sheltering Arms Hospital and Home Health Teams, Physical Therapy Solutions Staff, Bon Secours Liver Institute of Richmond and Covenant Woods Health Care Staff.
