A. Terry Slocum ’67

Published in Feb. 23, 2005, issue

Terry died at his Danville, Calif., home June 17, 2004, surrounded by his family. He displayed faith in God as he courageously dealt with a rapid transition from being very fit to being terminally ill with pancreatic cancer. A man of extraordinary character and integrity, Terry's remarkable wit, laughter, and interest in others will continue to bring smiles and warmth to friends and family.

Terry matriculated from Kent [Conn.] School. He was a member of the Tigertones, the Princeton Evangelical Fellowship, Trenton Tutorial, and Cottage Club. He roomed with Ted Weiss, Steve Brown, Todd Evans, Jack Morin, Allan Furniss, Sam Magruder, Jim Daniel, Charlie McMillan, John Brinkerhoff, and Fred Hickok, who were awed by his ability, "pre-P.C.," to think through a paper and then type a final draft. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude in history.

In 1970, Terry earned a law degree from Berkeley. After a federal district court clerkship, and serving in the county counsel's office in Santa Cruz, he became senior vice president and division president at Western Staff Services. In 1999, he became a vice president at PhilanthroCorp.

Although he received many awards, a successful life for Terry was not defined by accolades; rather, he found purpose through faith in God. He will continue to be loved and cherished by wife Kaaren, sons Scott and Brian, daughter-in-law Kerri, brother Tad, and the Iverson family.
