Born on March 18, 1948 to Onnie and Frances Hale Terry, Joy enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and gardening. He loved Alabama Football, but his passion was spending time with his family and friends. He will be remembered as a hard worker who had a heart for helping others, and was always there when you needed him. Joy was the glue that held his family together and a rock for anyone to lean on. He had an incredible way of making everyone feel loved and was known for his smile and laughter. Joy taught us to serve and love others well. "Well done thou good and faithful servant." Matthew 25:21.
