Terry was an avid runner and completed the Chicago Marathon in 1999. He loved the outdoors, camping, fishing, archery and was an Eagle scout and a scout leader. He enjoyed motorcycle trips in his youth, working on cars and woodworking.

He is survived by his wife, Julie Kuhn; aunts, Kate Pelley and Marty Jenot; brothers, Jerry (Elaine) Kuhn and Benny (Dawn) Kuhn; son, Adam (Amber) Kuhn; grandchildren, Haley and Hannah Kuhn.
