Terry enjoyed listening to heavy metal music (especially Iron Maiden) as well as spending time with his daughter. He was a lifelong New York Mets fan and member of the 7 Line Army. He collected movies and enjoyed playing video games in his spare time. It was rare to see him without a smile on his face, or to hear a story told in such a way that only he could tell it.

He is also survived by his English bulldog Harvey Orion Desert Flame Bell. He is survived by uncles, aunts, cousins and by numerous brothers and sisters in professional wrestling.
