Terry and I were best buddies at RRHS and beyond. WE used to "run" wth John K some and we checked out

U of Dayton together, figuring we'd be roomies; but i opted to stay in Cleveland after all. Remember Igave him

a "hard time" about his heated driveway that melted lite snow the first time I saw his house in Brecksville. He had

a little phrase he used wth me as we were both ardent Browns fans, "TGRITHOPF"--It referred to Jim Brown who was in

his 'heyday' back then, "The Greatest Runner in the History of Professional Football ". Havent seen or talked to Terry in many 

years as our lives went different ways, but itz still a shock when you see an old friend has passed!  RIP old friend!!

It truly breaks my heart to hear of the death of Terry Scanlon.  Terry and I became good friends in our junior and senior years at RRHS. We attended the University of Dayton and spent a lot of time in classes together, both being pre-med majors.  During college summers  and holidays, Terry, John Kelting, and Jeff Terbeek and I would get together regularlly.  Sorrowfully, Jeff, too, is deceased.  Terry always had a contagious smile on his face and he manifested a wonderful sense of humor - what a great laugh he had!. He did some pretty good imitations of famous people, too. Terry was a kind and generous individual, a dedicated family man, and a well respected physician; loved by his patients and respected by his colleagues, elected by them to many leadership positions at Brentwood Hospital and elsewhere. I know that Terry has not been well since before our 50th class reunion and that his wife, Pat, has been wonderful in caring for him over this time.  My heart and that of my wife, Patty's, goes out to Pat and their children.  Terry will be remembered and always hold a tender place in our hearts.
