    Our family met Terry and Linda at Church and we became very good friends. I recall so many conversations about the Lord between us all. Terry is indeed in heaven with the Lord! Terry was an inspiration by living an obedient Christian life on earth, knowing his faith was such a witness to many!

    Grateful to have been a part of your life here Terry!

  4. Stu & Kristia Lantz Says:

    Our families met each other at Haven Baptist Church in KCK Terry was a genuine man of faith and loved the Lord. Kristia remembers his special hugs. Kristia has fond memories of us and our kids taking him to his favorite burger joint, Freddie’s, to enjoy a burger and fries…and some laughter together. I remember the fun he and I had having fun jabs at each other over our Alma-Maters. He was a Pitt State Gorilla and I was a Central Missouri Mule. We kept up with each other’s team … hoping our team was just a little bit better that year. Fun memories. Terry was a great servant of the Lord and I’m sure that he heard Jesus say, “Well done my good and faithful servant”. Our thoughts and prayers are lifted up for Linda and family as they proceed through this time together. We love you. Stu & Kristia

  7. Brenda Boyer Says:

    My late husband(Garry)and I met Terry and Linda at Haven Baptist Church in Kansas City, Ks. Terry always had a hug for everyone he greeted. Both of them were always super friendly and a very kind couple. We were very blessed to know them. We were not blood related, but we came to call each other “cousin” hence Terry and Garry and Linda and Brenda! I would have been honored to be related to both of them! So thankful we are brothers and sisters in Christ. I know he is rejoicing in Heaven now! Prayers to Linda and their family as they mourn their loss.

    Linda, Todd and Family,

    I had the privilege of getting to know Terry during my time at Brookdale College Square. Terry was such a gentle giant, always walking the community with a sly smile on his face when we encountered one another.
    He was such a sweet, sweet man and will be missed.

    Prayers and love to you all

  10. Gary Porter Says:

    Terry and I worked together for years in the consulting business and I learned a lot from him about respect and honesty. Terry was so well respected and I don’t believe had an enemy in the world. He taught me how to be compassionate, and serve the customer in a manner in which we would want to be served. No day was too short for Terry to take the time to talk to you if you needed a moment. I will never forget how he referred to me as “his little buddy” even though he was only 8 years older than me! 🙂 He was a true gentleman, a loving husband and remarkable father.

    I will never forget all of the wonderful things he did for me. Rest in Peace my friend.

    Linda and Todd, my deepest sympathy, our loss is Heaven’s gain!

    God Bless,

    I am so sorry to hear about Terry.

    I enjoyed working with him at the Iowa Propane Gas Association when he did our CETP training.

    My husband Dennis enjoyed playing golf with him in Florida and when he was in Iowa.

    Terry was a very kind man. Sending thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

  12. Lena Cunningham Says:

    One thing I envied about Terry, he had great influence. It amazed me how he could so easily invite people to come together and most would show up. He just had that gift of getting people to gather.

    I’m sure many of you attended JUCO, nowadays, referred to as Community College. For a few years, Linda and I drove from Basehor to Overland Park once a week to attend Jewish Roots Institute of Kansas City. The studies they offer provide a deeper understanding and insight of Biblical culture, first century Judaism, and the Jewish roots background of scripture.
    Every time I think about how Terry fondly referred to the Jewish Roots Institution, I can’t help but grin. Terry would ask, “Are you going to JewCo tonight?”

    I had the privilege of working 8 years part-time for Linda and Terry, so, I got to know them as a couple pretty well. They are/were very generous. Terry had compassion for people who were struggling or in need but then did something. In most cases, the receiver of his and Linda’s contributions had no idea from where it came.

    My husband and I miss day trips and eating out the four of us did often. With Terry’s wit and Randy’s sense of humor we had great times and lots of laughter.

    We sure miss you Terry Boyer. RIP
