Terry Allen Taylor was born on February 2, 1958, in Echo, Minnesota to Alvin and Mary (Bott) Taylor. He was baptized at Hazel Run Lutheran Church in Hazel Run, Minnesota and confirmed at First English Lutheran Church in Tyler, Minnesota. Terry graduated in 1976 from Ortonville High School.

Terry and LeAnn Marie Gruenwald were married on October 27, 1979, at St. John's Catholic Church in Ortonville. To this union two children were born.

Terry and LeAnn made their home in Ortonville, Minnesota. Terry first worked at Taylor's Grain and Feed in Ortonville with his father, later working for the Ortonville Farmer's Co-op and the Wilmot Elevator. For the past several years, Terry had been employed by Bituminous Paving, Inc.

In his spare time, Terry enjoyed fishing, wood carving, chess, cards, and music. He was teaching himself how to play the guitar. The light and love of his life, however, was hanging out with "the dude", his grandson, Connor.
