    So sorry to hear of Terry(Stix) passing. I worked with Terry @ Gerry Miller Impl. and he was always fun to work with, he had a great sense of humor. Whenever we crossed paths after he purchased the family fuel business, he always had time to talk and share a laugh! He will be missed by many.

    Very sorry to hear of Terry’s (Stix;s) passing. I remember he always had time to talk with us growing up as he spent so much time with my brother. Sure will miss seeing his smile.

    My heart goes out to Jeanette and the Becker family. It is so difficult not to jump in the car and head to Wynot to give hugs to my cousins and family members. Terry was always there and was like our older brother taking us places and keeping us in line. Prayers to all as Terry watches over us from heaven and will greet each of us someday with open arms. Sandie

    Our deepest sympathy to Jeanette and all of Terry’s family. What a great and wonderful friend he was. He kept in touch with us for over 40 years and his friendship meant so much. We will miss his yearly holiday call. May God comfort you during this difficult time. With love and hugs, Tim and Diane Ronnenkamp
