Born August 8, 1953, Terry attended St. Andrew School and Carl Schurz High School.  Terry was engrossed in Chicago politics and began his career with the Chicago Park District as a Parking and Transportation Manager.  Terry worked at the 425 McFetridge Drive location for many years before moving on to the Metropolitan Pier and Exhibition Authority and then Standard Parking, all within in the same capacity. Terry also served as a Local Precinct Captain and even ran for State Representative in 1990. 

Most importantly, Terry served as a mentor, a sponsor, a friend and guide to so many seeking help through A.A.  Out of all of Terry's life experience, this was his proudest achievement.
