Condolence & Memory Journal

Paul and I have know Terry since the early 70's. He always had a smile and story. He was the first one to laugh at himself and didn't care when you joined in. I always loved to hear about his skiing adventures in Colorado. He had a lot of them to tell. He was one of the hardest working men I ever knew. He treated everyone with respect and had a great big love of life. You will be missed, Terry. I hope the skiing is awesome in heaven...

My deepest and most sincere sympathy to all. I consider myself blessed to have crossed path's with Terry. At one point of my life I entertained the thought of purchasing Terry's Busines and we went through the standard evaluation process. I quickly fell in love with Terry Fewell. I loved his passion for the business, his love and dedication for his family and staff, and his vision relative the future of Fewell Monument Compnay. I will never forget the evening we spent at diinner with Mr Cochran from Vermont; the story's he shared regarding the history of Fewell Monument Company, and the coming of the "Laser Etching Age". As the saying goes; "When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure." Terry was truly a treasure to all that knew and came to love him. Cherish the memories!

We started doing business with Terry several years ago and leared to respect the integrity and honesty with which he ran the company. After we joined companies, I learned to enjoy the many times when Terry corrected me on various granite matters. What a guy. I would have liked to continue learning from him had we had more time. We will all miss his positive outlook and many contributions.

From Carlos Figueroa & Family, our heartfelt condolences.

I first met Terry about a year ago. He had decided to sell his monument company because of his health, and we began discussions about purchasing it.

Terry had an incredible outlook on life, despite his impending death. He was proud of his company and the people that worked there. Through the trials and tribulations he faced fighting cancer, he kept his sense of humor.

I will miss him.

My family sends their warmest condolences to his family.
