Thinking of Norma and her family our prayers are with you
I have fun memories of Sacred Heart school days with Terry. He and some of the kids from class would head over to hang out at my house. They loved my mom and mother enjoyed them. She had cookies made and we would discuss the day and get a big chuckle out of their visits. Terry and mom and Jim Dishman all had birthdays that were on the 13th. She always liked Terry (and Cindy). So did my dad. They knew Terry's family from church. I am betting mom has already spotted Terry and they are getting caught up.
My sincere sympathy to the entire family. I would be there if I wasn't 4 hours away and I work Monday. I will be thinking of all of you. Love, Margaret Gardner Baker.
Memories of Terry Rial
My uncle Terry was the oldest of 7 children, son of E Pat and Norma. My dads oldest brother. My random memories are Terry being a protective uncle in the AEA parking lot when some punks were trying to mess with us. He raised a calf at his house in savage addition. Then while living on the farm outside Clare he raised sheep and chickens. Freckles liked to kill chickens so Terry duct taped a chicken around his neck. Interesting technique and I think it worked. Tons of good memories at the farm including the biggest bonfire I’ve ever been a part of! Terry was a greaser and then used his experience and knowledge to become an inventor in the industry. I always respected this accomplishment and was able to actually help install a rooftop unit in Colorado. He also helped Chad become Fort Dodges quickest big wheel racer ever! Probably the coolest thing about Terry was his passion for hunting! The boars nest just outside Doliver Park was his home away from home. He put in food plots, tree stands, and blinds. Besides Terry, Pat probably reaped the most benefits from the Boars nest although Chad and Dave both have some nice bucks they harvested there. He showed me how to shoot my first recurve bow and he was partial to recurves or at least finger release. I believe his reference to mechanical releases was “Fuck those releases” We all had deer summer sausage from Terry’s deer. It always felt like a special occasion when he busted it out. One of his last kills might have been an antelope in Colorado with Lori as his range finder. 60 yards with a crossbow. Having all these trophies and his ability to make a killer tenderloin led to opening Antlers. I loved going to Antlers to see Terry and Lori and all the Rial family! It was always cool to hear the stories about the hunts. Especially Dave’s deer and the epic trip to Wyoming! That picture of all the guys at the Dodger Tap is one for the history books. I’m pretty sure Terry killed every deer on that trip. I’ve also heard that Terry was in a leather jacket in tree just inside the park when he shot the biggest buck in the bar. That deer is special! Just a beautiful mount! He may have mounted it himself? Terry was one of the first calls I made after I shot my elk. I think he about shit his pants, he kept saying you got a 6x6? Then he asked how he was laying on the mountain and explained how I should quarter it out and save the cape for mounting. The taxidermist said that’s exactly how it needed to be done. Terry knew his shit when it came to hunting! I’ll just say Terry created a lot of great memories for me, please share that you may have!
You will be missed!
