    As the youngest daughter of Larry and Connie Compeau, I did not know Terry very well, but what I did know about him left an impact. He was a very sweet, sincere man who loved life. I know he will be greatly missed by all.

    Hi Honey-It’s been 4 weeks since you left me. It’s so quiet around here without you. I keep talking to you, but you don’t answer me. I know you met Korkee at the Rainbow Bridge. Give him a big fat kiss for me. You have to go back & look for JD-he died on the 20th. He needs a ‘Blue’. I sent your flag to Mo & Roger. They’re going to fly it at the lake house. Thought you’d like that. Please watch over me. Like you always said, ‘I love you-alot! My heart is broken. Me

    I am so sorry. I remember Terry and what a character he was. So much fun to be around. He was very thoughtful, kind and generous when we lost our mom (Connie) in August. She thought he was something special too. Love, Donna

    I’m so very sad that we lost Terry. He was a big part of my life for 5 years. Terry was a fun, loving and generous man. He loved animals to the end and took care of all his precious ones he had. We had so many laughs and so many cries. Someday we will meet him again with a new venture ahead. I hope you can read this Terry. Be happy and most of all, healthy. I will miss you.. Love Debbie

    To all the family, I was sadden to hear of Terrys unexpected death. As I remembered him I thought of all the wonderful and devilish things him & I would do when I was living in Greece.Some of my most fun times were spend with Terry when I was in my 20’s. Terry would call me at any given time & say HEY BETTY WANT TO GO HAVE A DRINK SOMEWHERE ? Off we would go.Everytime we ran into some one Terry knew ( which was all the time as he knew just about everyone I think ! ) He would introduce me as his girlfriend to see if he could stir the pot up….And I would say TERRY people are gonna take you serious ! He would just laugh with that devilish look in his eyes. What a guy. He will be missed by many. He truely was a wonderful person & a great cousin to me. Love Betty

    We can’t believe that Terry is gone. We will always remember his friendship and smile. He always gave us a warm greeting and sincerely cared about us.
