Terry loved working in the Healthcare field and had many roles from CFO, CEO, and Physician Administrator. His last two roles were as CEO/Administrator for Dodge City Medical Center and, most recently, as Executive Director for Radiology and Nuclear group in Topeka, KS.   He was very involved with the growing concerns of healthcare in Kansas and served as a board member of KAHCE (Kansas Association of Health Care Executives), member of American College of Healthcare Executives, Medical Group Management Association and member of Insurance Focus Committee, KS Chapter, and a member of national MENSA association.

rry’s favorite things in life were his dogs, Sam and Corey, his family, and his grandchildren. He also loved the Omaha theatre and, most important, the Nebraska Husker games “GO BIG RED”.  He loved attending the games with his sister Leslie and spent many Saturdays texting back and forth with relays of the game. He was an avid supporter of education, humane society, Omaha theatre and Henry Doorly Zoo.

Everyone who met Terry fell in love with him. He inspired and mentored many during his career in health care and will be greatly missed by all.

    Our deepest sympathy to Laura and family on the death of TerrBear. Terry was not only an incredible and forward-thinking healthcare administrator, he was one of the few CFOs I’ve ever worked with who truly understood the value and necessity of strong advertising and marketing of services and providers. But mostly he was a helluva lot of fun, knew a good wine and scotch when he tasted it and warmed people from all walks of life with his compassion and care that was seasoned with a great sense of humor. He will certainly be missed.Our warm condolences.
