Survived by his wife of 39 years, Lynn Garrison Wolf, daughters Kelly Frenck (Dave) and Kathleen Regentin (John); preceded in death by son Michael Fahey. Loving grandfather of William, Patrick, Jack, and Audrey. Also survived by his siblings; brothers Glenn (Liz) and Richard (Gail), and his sister Nancy Wolf-Fisher (Joe).
Terry grew up in Cheverly, MD and lived there most of his life. He graduated from Bladensburg High School, attended Frostburg University, and graduated from the University of Maryland – earning his degree while also working full-time. Terry served in the Naval Air Reserves at Patuxent NAS as a sonar operator on Orion P3 sub-hunter aircraft. He spent the majority of his career working in the automotive parts industry.
Traveling with Lynn was a true joy for Terry. Whether they were on a cruise or visiting family and friends throughout the country, he enjoyed the sights, cuisine, and culture. Terry and Lynn had recently moved to Gettysburg, PA, bringing them closer to family.
He was an avid golfer and a lifelong sports enthusiast. Although Terry closely followed professional sports, he most enjoyed watching his grandchildren play. Terry attended countless games, meets, and regattas over the years.
Many family, friends, and co-workers loved Terry. They will miss his kind-heartedness, contagious laugh, and big smile.
A memorial service will be held at a later date this spring.
