I remember going on vacation in Ellsworth with the Daigles, as well as chopping wood up in the woods and loading it into the back of our Dad's trucks in the 1970s when everyone was woodburning. It was a lot of work!

I also remember that Terry was a wonderful English for College teacher as well as Vice Principal, and he will be in my thoughts and sorely missed by those who knew him. My fondest sympathies to the family..... Stephanie Dow

Terry was a wonderful teacher, mentor, colleague, and friend! As a teacher he went out of his way to inspire learning and expand our horizons with trips to UMaine, especially the library. Later, as a colleague and boss at Stearns, he was compassionate, caring, and supportive. I am most blessed to have known and worked with him. My sincere condolences to all of you, his family. May we all live by his example. Deb Drew

My sincerest heartfelt sympathies to Terry's family and friends. I first knew Terry as a Stearns High School junior; he was my Spanish teacher, and a great one too! I always looked forward to his classes. He quietly guided me to pursue Spanish as a college major. Later on in life, we would always discuss Spanish shared with some laughter. Little did I know at that time, that Terry would become a lifelong friend. Our paths met at many, many University of Maine hockey games, Hockey East and Frozen Fours as well as community events. He was a true asset to our community - an educator, an advocate, a leader and a friend to all who had the honor of knowing him. A life very well lived, my friend. Rest in eternal peace. Vaya con Dios.
