October 23, 1970 to Manuel Harris and the late Wanda Booker Irving.

Terry had a smile for everyone and had the greatest sense of humor. He found the simple things in life would bring him joy. Loving his children, hanging out with friends, meeting new people. Terrys first love was football, well known for pushing boundaries on the field during his time in high school.  He would later still be that boundary pusher in life, living by his own rules. Some might say a true Rolling Stone but family and bringing them together was always most important to him. He was in his element when he was outdoors, weather permitting he loved to host cookouts or start up a bonfire, any reason to spoil his grandchild with chocolate or smores. He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered.
