Terry grew up in Mt. Summit across the street from the school where his mother was a teacher. Growing up in Mt. Summit, Terry made many lifelong friends and developed a love for athletics, especially basketball, and reading. He was a member of the inaugural class of Blue River Valley High School in 1965. He went on to attend Wittenburg University, where he was a member of the basketball team and a 1969 graduate. Following college, he obtained his juris doctorate from Indiana University School of Law in 1974.
Terry had a variety of interests. He played the banjo. He loved to travel and particularly enjoyed trips to Munich for Oktoberfest and vacations on Longboat Key, Florida. An avid reader, he would commonly finish at least one novel per week, was a favorite reading partner of his grandchildren and reveled the challenge of the Sunday New York Times cross word puzzle.
Terry is survived by his former wife, Janet Harvey of New Castle; two sons, Joel (Kelly) Harvey of New Castle and Ben (Megan) Harvey of Indianapolis; four grandchildren, Lydia and Corrine Harvey, both of New Castle, and Baxter and Truman Harvey, both of Indianapolis; and two nieces, Gretchen Wagner and Emily (Andy) Hodson, both of Indianapolis.
