He was born November 26, 1952, in Laurel, MS, and graduated from Oak Park High School Class of 1970.
Terry attended Jackson State University on a Music Scholarship. He became a well loved Music Industry Manager. Touching the lives of many artists and producers. ie. Swizz Beatz, Trillville and Dem Franchize Boyz just to name a very few. There really isn't space enough to list all the lives that he has touched musically. He loved all music, but always kept his "ear to the street", for the next exciting sound. He was classically trained, but not limited to any genre of music.
He was one of the few people that had a dream about family and career and they both became a reality. His life centered around both. His love was immense for them.
He had so many very close friends from his childhood in Laurel, MS, to college at Jackson State University that he remained very close too. Along with special friends in Nashville, TN. When he became your friend, it was for life.
