Terry Lynn Locke

Answer one question or many - using words, photos or other media.

Who were some famous people Terry met?

Vesper Locke
He met "Almost Gene Simmons" (from the band KISS). I'll never forget because he chased the guy down and asked for a photo and concert tickets for his wife and son! This photo was taken approximately June 27, 2016.

...that should say from the band "Almost KISS" ;)

The last night Terry was alive, we went to the Expocentre and seen Kansas in concert. He didn't actually meet them but, close enough. I'll add some photos later.

Did Terry have a favorite pet? Have a photo of them together?

Vesper Locke
Vesper Locke
Terry loved dogs and most animals. I have 2 toy poodles, which I had before Terry and I got together and then one day he came home with a dog that was mostly pit bull. So, we had 3 dogs total: Sassy, Dusty Dew and Lil' Man. We have hundreds if not thousands of photos of Lil' Man by himself but, I can't find any of Terry with him once he got older/bigger.

Anything about the cause of death that you'd like people to know?

Vesper Locke
Terry died on my birthday, by accidental suicide (hanging). Accidental, meaning that he threatened suicide with no intention of actually dying, but did.

What did Terry dislike?

Vesper Locke
Terry had more favorite things, wishes, and best friends than he had dislikes. But, some things I remember him disliking were: hominy, pumpkin, and the color red. It's really late right now while I'm typing this so, I'll be adding more things at another time.

How did Terry affect other people?

Vesper Locke
I'd have to say it really depended on his mood and the person he was affecting. ;)

What were Terry's favorite TV shows, movies, books or music?

Vesper Locke
Terry loved paranormal shows. At the time of his death we were watching The Ghosts of Shepardstown. He also liked Nashville, The Fosters, American Idol, Dead Pool, TMNT, Transformers, Superman, etc.

What will you miss most about Terry?

Vesper Locke
Terry. His hands, his hair, his voice, his routines, his excuses, his stories, his mannerism, his hugs, him.

What accomplishment was Terry most proud of?

Vesper Locke
Well, if you were able to ask Terry this question he'd say he was most proud of being married to me. I happen to know that he was also proud that he quit smoking, that he transplanted our trees (that we grew from saplings), that we saved money (to buy a nice tv and fireplace), when he mowed our lawn diagonally (so it looked more professionally done), etc. It didn't take much for Terry to be amazed and want people to be proud of him. He thrived in an environment full of love, praise, routine, and commitment. He was proud to have a family. It was so important to him.

When and how did you first meet Terry?

Vesper Locke
Him and my son had met and become best friends. Then he started coming over to our house. That may sound kind of odd but, my son is 30 years old and Terry and I are/were both in our 40's.
