Terry was born in Iowa and educated at Brown and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. After training in General and Cardiothoracic Surgery in Boston and London, he entered academic surgery at the Harvard, Brown and Ohio State Universities’ medical schools until 1982, when he left to start cardiac surgery programs for Kaiser-Permanente in San Francisco and ultimately for the Mayo Clinic’s Medical Center in Wisconsin. Terry retired from surgery at age 59 (1998) and taught people to ski in the Ski and Snowboard Schools of Aspen for the next 17 years.

Terry’s first wife, Gina, died in 2005. He met Margie Bride in 2012, and they were married in 2014. Terry then moved to Cambridge, MA, and started a second educational arc, taking many liberal arts courses in Cambridge and Boston. He and Margie have worked with ROCA, in Chelsea, MA, and Terry is on the board of Thompson Island Outward Bound in Boston. He and Margie became involved with a non-profit in Blantyre, Malawi, in 2015, initially funding a footbridge for school students and now a (senior) Grandmothers’Center. They have travelled widely since 2015 and make annual trips to Malawi.
