  1. I am so sorry to learn of Fergy’s passing.
    Remembering him takes me back to the good old softball days. Fergy was an excellent umpire. He was always a really nice guy with a big smile.

  2. I worked with him at Toshiba. My area was Duluth, but when I knew Terry was coming up I knew everything would go well. More importantly, I get to talk with a great, down to earth guy. Very sad to hear this.

  3. Condolences on his passing. May memories of him be a source of peace to the family.
