Terry spent numerous hours in his wood shop, building intricate wood decorations for his walls and family. Some of his special projects are three large grandmother wall clocks. He enjoyed selling his wood creations at the yearly Rockwell Craft Bazaar. Terry had a “green thumb” and every summer he supplied his children and neighbors with home-grown produce including tomatoes, cucumbers, peaches, apples, raspberries and eggplants.
