As a lifelong Tangier waterman, Terry enjoyed being on the bay and spent his career crabbing and working for Dann Marine Towing. He loved music, especially Kid Rock and Luke Bryant, and looked forward to going to concerts. The gentlest of souls, Terry could always make you laugh, and as the Baltimore Orioles biggest fan, there wasn’t a baseball trivia question he didn’t know the answer to.
Terry is survived by his fiancé, Anita Crockett; her children, Shane Crockett (Beth) and Paige Crockett; and a special little girl, Erin “Diddle” Gott, who shared a special bond with Terry; his brother, Darren Landon (Chris); uncles, Burke Landon (Bonnie), Stan Landon (Margaret Ann), Ed Landon (Maxine), and Jackie McCready (Marlene); nephews, Justin Landon and Zachary Pruitt; niece, Rochelle Crockett (Bill); great niece, Isabella; great nephews, Peyton and AJ; and several cousins.
A memorial service will be held at the Swain Memorial United Methodist Church Sunday, July 19, 2020, at 1 p.m., with Pastor Darren Landon and Denny Crockett officiating.
