Terry Wayne Martin’s life began on November 7, 1952, in Saltillo, Tennessee, with his birth to his loving parents, Jerry Wilbert Martin and Dorothy Cooper Martin.
Terry was of the Baptist faith and received an accounting degree from Draughon’s Business College. Terry was employed in Memphis, Tennessee as a supervisor at the LaFarge Cement Company which was later bought out by Continental Cement Company from which he retired. On November 16, 2007, Terry’s crew named him “Manager of the Year”.
Terry was a man who loved reading, watching movies, and listening to his favorites hit songs of all time.
