Terry Allan Hormann was born in Graceville, Minnesota, on March 4, 1973. He was raised on the family farm outside of Dumont where he enjoyed riding his motor bike and spending time with friends down on Lake Traverse.
At the age of 13, Terry moved to Alexandria. He worked at the Alexandria Red Owl Store starting at age 14. He graduated from Jefferson High School in 1991. Following graduation, he worked numerous jobs including farming, driving milk truck, and then road construction, where he worked until his passing.
For 13 years of his life, Terry was married to Melissa Howe, with whom he remained very close to.
Terry enjoyed riding horse and team penning. He looked forward to the annual snowmobiling, hunting and fishing trips with his friends. Terry received his certificate for scuba diving and later got his certificate for deep sea diving, which he greatly enjoyed.
One of the highlights of Terry's life was his trip to the Caribbean with his friend Dick Telkamp, whom he considered his second dad. During this trip Dick taught Terry the art of sailing.
Terry loved spending time with his family, especially his nephews, taking them hunting and bow fishing. He also loved to join them in their paint ball wars.
