Condolence Messages

  1. My sincere condolences to the Madsen family. I am very sorry for your loss.

    I had the great privilege of working with Terry (“Mr. T”) back in the old Scottland/Brooks Hauser days. Even though Terry had a few years on all of us at the time, he was always there and worked his ass off like none other. We had a lot fun in those days and it was never without a joke or two or ten from Terry. He brought a lot of smiles to everyone who knew him and I’m sad to hear of his passing. He was gentleman at all times and deeply loved his ‘bride’, Deryl!

    God speed, Mr. T ….

  2. Sorrry for the lost.

  3. I remember Terry coming in to the bank when I worked there. What a pleasant man and he was always talking about his kids and grandkids. He was so proud of his family!
