Butch was born in Fort Sill, OK to Leslie and Elizabeth Almony. After the passing of his father, Butch’s mother remarried, Richard Terry Sr. Shortly after their marriage, Butch became an older brother when Richard Terry Jr. and Mona Terry Torres were born.
After Butch graduated from Saks High School in Anniston, AL the family moved to Woodstock, GA where Butch attended Kennesaw University. Butch lived most of his life in Woodstock, GA until 6 years ago when he moved to Joshua, TX. Butch was a Millwright by trade and a certified welder.

Butch most recently continued his Millwright and welding career at North Texas Millwrights local 1421 near his home in Joshua, TX. He was passionate about his work and enjoyed making new friends and traveling.
One of Butch’s favorite pastimes was his love for horses. Whether Butch was caring for them or taking them on a trail ride, this was a true joy for him. Butch’s love for horses included movies and re-enactments. Butch did re-enactments for the civil war, and was involved in the making of the Rambo movies. Butch was also a talented artist and musician. Butch played the trombone, piano, and guitar. Butch’s infectious smile and personality drew you in and left you wanting more. It was truly a blessing to call him a brother and friend.
