Terry was born on April 25, 1955 in Wakefield, NE to Donald and Joan (Nuss) Carl. He spent his first seven years at home with his family but he soon became too much for them to handle. He then went to the Beatrice State Developmental Center in Beatrice, NE. In 2011 he moved to Omaha into a house managed by Mosaic of Omaha.
Terry was JOY. Terry was LAUGHTER. Terry was LOVE. He enjoyed trains, the holidays, old movies, pets, silly hats, playdough, his iPad, and bubbles just to name a few. He loved any celebration! He loved his family and would come running with open arms when they would visit. He loved hugs and a good head rub. We give thanks for all the good people at Mosaic of Omaha and the staff of the house Terry lived in. They are angels on earth for the wonderful care they provided him. They treated him with dignity and love and it showed. We are going to miss him so much, but rejoice for having been blessed to get to love him all of these years
Survivors include his five brothers: Roger (Liza) Carl of Lincoln, NE, Danny (Jody) Carl of Hartington, NE, Mark (Kris) Carl of Bennington, NE, Tommy (Li) Carl of Dakota City, IA and Lee Carl of Hartington, NE; many nieces and nephews.
Terry is preceded in death by his parents and sister, Jill Carl.
