Terry was born on April 7, 1963, in St. Louis to George Chamineak and Fern Nichols Chamineak. 

From early in life, Terry was a person of passion. He displayed a great love for cooking, making others laugh, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

His love will be cherished forever by those who were privileged to know him.

Terry was preceded in death by his brother Kevin Chamineak, as well as his parents, George and Fern Chamineak.
