Terry spent 21 years as a Metro Police officer. He moved to Las Vegas from southern California in 2001 to join LVMPD after studying criminal justice, his obituary says.
He was killed on June 10 — nine days after his 45th birthday — when a beam crashed down on his unmarked patrol car while he was driving on U.S. 95 in the Centennial Bowl construction zone. A truck carrying an oversized load struck the beam, causing it to fall.
Terry is survived by his wife Stacey, his sons Sean and Jacob, and his dog Camper.
