Terry was born July 10, 1954, in Cedar Rapids, the son of Melvin Keith and Marian Louise (Bremer) Lint. Terry worked for many years as a truck driver and mechanic, most recently for Schminke Equipment. He was an avid dirt track racer and raced for many years with the number 6G. He enjoyed playing the bass guitar in many family bands over the years. Terry enjoyed sitting at the courthouse people watching, as he called it. He enjoyed riding his Harley and attending car shows with his Hotrod. His most favorite pastime was playing fetch and enjoying snuggles with his puppy Leela. Terry enjoyed spending time with his kids and grandkids, and along with his actual children he had many others that he called his own. No one ever went by their actual name around Terry, he had a special nickname for everyone.
He is survived by his children, Terry (Tara) Lint, Vallarie (Jim) Anderson, Tonya (David) Alexander, Hydie (Jason) Chesmore, Ida Belle (Sam Carrillo) Lint and Dale (Zack) Knight; one sister, Deb (Don) Heipler; one brother, Kevin (Judy) Lint; 13 grandkids; and six great-grandkids.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Kaye Dennison.
