Terry was very close to me, one of a core group of best friends. We spent afternoons at his house in H.S. playing pool and drinking Mountain Dew or Cokes, and working on crossword puzzles with his mom, Virigina (Kitty) upstairs. A second family home for me, as was my time at the Targun's a block away.

Terry (aka Teddy, Theo, Tedwardian) was my fraternity brother at Pi Kappa Alpha in Tucson 1974, along with Tom Johnston (skotche) and when i would visit Chicago, he would always offer to put me up at his house in Glencoe he purchased and enjoyed before he passed.

From concerts and parties in H.S. and college to playing golf and flying with him to CA in my plane, he was always a best friend i could count on for being not just fun, but was very real, honest, and direct.

I miss calling him up to review trivia and TV or Film tidbits including identifying actors.

Terry soothed my wife as they came to visit me at the Tucson C.C. on one of his trips out to stay with us from Chicago in the 90's, to pick me up after golf and later a high stakes game of gin; as they entered the Men's Grill together, one stodgy member asked my wife Roxie to leave, stating, "This is the MEN's Grill".  We were all aghast at his officious tone. We/She will never forget how Teddy stood in, ushered her out the porch, after a few choice words himself, as while we lambasted the member for being too much of a stickler, so i collected my winnings and met them outside for a drink.  Lots of memories, we lived lots of life together.

Here's to you Theo: You are a Great man !
