Fun Facts About Terry!
Hello everyone! My name is Terry. I want to share some fun facts about me!
I was named after the main character of the Terry and the Pirates comic series, which was an action-adventure comic strip that ran from 1934-1973. I'm not sure if that had any influence but I also have a fondness for learning about pirate history....and our store always celebrates Talk Like a Pirate Day every September 19....Arrr.
Go Sun Devils and Dbacks!
I moved to Arizona over 30 years ago so I've seen a lot of changes in the Valley of the Sun over the years. I went to college at Arizona State University where I majored in History. I also enjoy supporting our Arizona Diamonbacks!
History is Awesome
I love reading about history, in particular the history of WW2. Regarding WW2 history, I am a member of the Commemorative Air Force, and was a docent at their local CAF Airbase Arizona museum for several years. Serving as a docent has allowed me to share stories of courage, sacrifice, and resilience and educate others about this important part of history. I also enjoy visiting other museums like the Pima Air Museum - they are great places to connect with the past!
Exploring other Worlds
When I am not learning about history, I will be checking out some Science Fiction or Sci-Fi. I have always had a fascination since I was young with all things Sci-Fi and comic book related. Star Trek, Star Wars, Marvel, and DC are some of my favorites!
I have been in the furniture business since 2005. I currently manage Oak For Less® as well as Amish Furniture Creations™, where I work with my brother-in-law and sister. It is a blessing that we all get along really well!
