You may remember the sad news that we lost Terry early on; he drowned in our senior year (1971), just short of his 18th birthday.

Terry was my first real date - I still think of him often. It was a sad ending to a fine young man's life but he had an effect. Throughout college there were times I had an opportunity to make a choice that could have been a bad one and the memory of Terry was part of what stopped me. God bless you, Terry.

I remember Terry.  Besides being at northwest together we also attended the same church---Hope Lutheran.  His death was so sad---I think partly because it happened so close to graduation and also because he had a twin brother Jerry Dorris.  Through the years i have thought of both of them often.  I know Terry has found peace and pray that Jerry has been able to do the same.

Terry was my locker partner for all those years of junior high and high school. I didn't know what to think when it happened but I vaguely remember getting to school that morning and being told what had happened because others were kinda hanging around the locker. Today, as I found this website for the first time and have joined, reviewing all the names and memories, I was struck with the date March 22. That date seems to come up on several years when things happened in my life. We always need to consider how life is so fragile and how easily we forget. Thanks for the memory of Terry through this website.
