Terry was born on June 10, 1947 in La Porte, IN, to Oliver J. and Mary Jayne (Corson) Troth.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife; sister, Jayne Hudson; and brother, Larry Troth.

After graduating in 1965 from La Porte High School, where he played on the Slicer baseball team, Terry proudly served in the U.S. Marine Corps, during Vietnam.  During his service, he earned numerous medals and badges, including a Purple Heart Medal.
