Terry was born June 26, 1935 in Fort Worth to the late Roy F. and Ruby V. Gunter. Terry proudly served our country by enlisting in the U.S. Navy. Terry was employed by Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, Fort Worth and Denver Railways and owner of Gunter Furniture Company in Kennedale, before going to work for Miller Brewing Company. Terry retired from Miller Brewing Company in 1996, when he and Jackie started enjoying life and each other, during their many trips over the past years. Their travels included Europe, British Isle, Australia and New Zealand, China, Thailand, Egypt and other countries. He was an officer in the Texas Jaycees where he served many years. He enjoyed coaching boy’s baseball and women’s softball. Terry was active in his church at First Baptist Church of Crowley and volunteered with Kids Hope USA through Bess Race Elementary School. He was actively involved in upward basketball. He was lucky to have his grandchildren close by where he watched them grow up and enjoyed watching them as they participated in their athletic sports. Terry was a member of the Miller Brewing Retirement Club.
Terry will be deeply missed and will remain in our hearts forever.
