Arnold Terry was born December 22, 1934, in Jefferson, Texas to Harold and Maurine (Shackelford) Terry. He served in the US Coast Guard for seven years and in the US Army for two years. Arnold was known as a “worker” who could do anything, but really enjoyed wood working. He liked the kind of work in which he could make use of his “tools” such as the tractor, the chain saw and other machinery. He quickly mastered whatever he turned his hand to doing. He lived in Houston for most of his life where he owned and operated a freight delivery business.
For the past 33 years, he had lived in Buffalo and was a member of the Stewart Memorial Methodist Church. Arnold passed away in Houston, Texas on October 4, 2016.
