When it came to his grandkids, well, let's just say they hit the jackpot with a grandpa like Terry. His love for his grandsons, Bryce and Brayden, knew no bounds. Terry's heart swelled with pride at Bryce's football wins, whether it was scoring touchdowns in high school or shining on the college field.
