Longtime Chron veteran dies at 73

I never met this guy, but he sounds like a good, solid man:
Patrick Claude Terry, 73, a Houston Chronicle news editor who never missed a day of work in his 37-year career, died Friday.
Terry was a member of St. Cyril of Alexander Catholic Church, where he served as a funeral liturgist and Eucharistic minister. He was a 20-year member of the American Legion and a retired member of the Knights of Columbus Post 1234. Terry also was active as a coach, manager and executive in the Sharpstown and Voss Little Leagues and was a children's mentor at Walnut Bend Elementary School. Terry is survived by his wife of 42 years, Marlene Lee Sheffer Terry, four sons and three daughters-in-law, Brian and Colleen Terry; Mark and Dee-Dee Terry; Paul and Carolina Terry; and Todd Terry.
Veteran, diligent worker, churchgoer, brother Knight, family man and volunteer. We should all mourn the passing of people like this.
