Hometown pride and an unwavering work ethic were sources of pride for Terry and among his core values that drove all his pursuits. He often reminisced about the many jobs he had starting at a young age including working at Soderberg’s Farm, Haas & Sons, Midland Gas Station, Wifler Chevrolet, and then for the Thorp Police and Clark County Sheriff’s Depts.  In 1975, he moved to Eau Claire, WI, and began his 20 year career with the Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Dept holding many positions including jailer, patrolman, pilot, Duty Officer, SWAT Commander and Detective Sgt; retiring from law enforcement in 1995.

While with the Sheriff’s Dept, he also formed the companies Photo Card Specialists, Inc. and Awards & More, Co. currently celebrating 37 years in business.  For 36 years, Terry and Linda traveled nationwide to Tow Shows developing many connections in the towing industries and gaining close friends.  He loved photographing trucks and visiting with the owners, drivers, and families.

A flying, crime-fighting, Midwesterner through and through, Terry has left a lasting impression by treating every person as a friend whether he had just met them or had been life-long buddies. He will be truly missed. Terry’s passion and service for the towing industry will be carried on in the continued work of Photocard Specialties, Inc. and their efforts to help promote the companies of the towing community.
