    Mr Blanchard was like a dad to me, I’ll never forget the lessons he taught me! I’ll never be able to thank him enough for coming to my football games after my dad died when I was a kid. Mr Blanchard was the kind of man that every man on earth should try to be, a great man gone too soon! All of my thoughts and prayers are with the family! 💔💔

    I am so very sorry to hear this. I worked with Terry at Watts for years and because of the nature of our jobs we had many long conversations. How much he loved his family, his daily bologna sandwich, Paula’s donuts, the crossword, jumble and sudoku (which he was never able to get me to understand). He was so proud of his grandkids and thrilled when I met Zach and Tara at a swim meet. What a legend – he will be missed. Thoughts and prayers with you all.

    The Veterans Outreach Center extends our deepest sympathy in Terry’s passing.
    We acknowledge and are truly grateful for his service to our country.

  18. Mary Schultz on May 28, 2024 at 3:27 pm

    We were sorry to learn of Terry’s passing. We fondly remember the fun times of our kids growing up together, with you guys. I think Jason was Jeff’s very first real friend from toddlerhood and way after the femur fractures they both experienced as young boys! We are keeping your family in prayer during this time of grief and sadness. With sympathy from us all, Chuck, Mary, Jeff, Matt, Kevin and Brian
