Terry was welcomed into this world on December 16th, 2013 to Jeremiah Lee and Effie Marie (Harris) LaFore. 

He was a typical little boy that loved to play with his friend and sisters. He enjoyed spending as much time as possible outside and helping his parents with various outdoor activities such as yard work, working on cars with dad, shoveling snow, and rescuing cats that needed help. He enjoyed playing with his sisters Rebecca, Roseanna, and Jasilynn. They enjoyed riding bikes, and running and playing in the yard. Terry always found joy and peace by being with his cats. Terry's favorite toys were legos and anything he could build with. Towards the end Terry enjoyed playing Minecraft on his tablet. Terry was a 1st grader at Prairie View Elementary in Ogallala. He was a very loved boy by all who met him. He was a blessing and a joy to be around and filled everyone's heart with love and encouragement.
