HOWARD LeROY TERRY

Howie

Terry who hails from the Ozarks brought with him the characteristics and deliberation of a good classmate. Howie for the past three years has been a conscientious lover of football with boxing running a close second. A ready smile on all occasions is the secret of his personality. An easy going disposition has made him a host of friends. All in all, he's a man's man, a gentleman—and the ladies like him.
