Love you Terry. I'm so glad I got to be a small part of your life. For all the questions that I could think to ask you that will never be answered, I appreciated your PRESENCE and the LIGHT that would shine through you from the Lord. Thanks for coming over with the guys and watching the Cowboys with us! I will always treasure that memory. David Lesley, November 30, 2021 Dear Kemp Family: A note to let you know I will be praying for your family as you grieve your loss. Having lost family I know the pain and trials and will be praying for all. May you feel God’s peace and calm. Nancy McMinn , November 29, 2021 I called him Baby Kemp and he hated it. Lots of fun memories growing up at Lake Texoma two trailers down from the Kemp family. Van and I send our love and are thinking of you all.
Deanna and Van Smith, November 28, 2021 Terry was a good friend who we will never forget. We greatly regret having lost touch over the past few years but we will always have our memories. Leon & Becky Mace, November 27, 2021 Terry was one of my best friends, we spent a lot of time together and I have so many memories, stories and good times with him and his family. From hot rodding the streets of McKinney as teenagers to summers at Lake Texoma to countless motorcycle excursions to Munster and Ardmore Ok. And then there were all the Cowboy games and New Years Eve’s. So many good times I only regret not being able to have spent more with him these past several years. Will miss you dearly old friend. RIP Terry Dale Martin Fantony, November 26, 2021 He was a great guy we had slot of fun growing up you will be missed God Bless Jerry a rest of the family By Cuz Johnny shanks, November 26, 2021 Sending my deepest condolences to the family. I came to know Terry at an early age, he and I became friends, I lived at McKinney Job Corp and there was a fence that seperated us from the field that Terry rode his motorcycle, I watched him ride day in and day out, he came by the fence one day and ask if I want to go for a ride and the rest is done and eventually he taught me how to ride a motorcycle. Terry was an all around good guy. Buster Williams, November 25, 2021 We are so sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. Prayers lifted for all his family and friends.
