    I worked with Terry (always called him Motel) at DVI from 1979-83, where he worked 2nd watch housing floor officer with his partner, Officer Carillo (D Wing? My memory fades there). Motel was always alert and on top of the game as an officer at DVI where we housed so many violent offenders. He was a solid, honest, hard-working correctional professional. My condolences to his family. — Tim Ochoa
