Terry was born to parents Gaston and Clara Bourg on Nov. 6, 1940. He was the youngest of five and shared that honor with his twin brother Gary. Terry was a lifelong resident of Hahnville. He graduated from Hahnville High School as did all of his children. Terry never shied from work and held numerous jobs in his lifetime. From his first job throwing papers as a little boy on a bicycle, to the 40 years he put in at Avondale Shipyards, the time he put in running his fathers bar or the numerous paper routes he threw or pizzas he delivered, Terry never stopped working to provide for his family. In later years he dedicated his time and energy to the care of his wife. Terry, along with his wife Verina, dedicated his energies to hosting an annual St. Joseph’s Altar in his home for 25 years.
