He is predeceased by his parents; his oldest sister, Judy (Bob) Mazzarella of Bohemia, NY; a younger brother, Marty (Darlene) Hough of Kingsville, MO; and a younger brother, Judd Hough of Kansas City North, MO.
Survivors include his oldest brother, Jack (Joan) Hough of Stroudsburg, PA; Richard “Dick” (Jean) Hough of Visalia, CA; younger sister Nancy (Gary) Martin of Platte City, MO; and youngest brother Eric (Brandie) Hough of Fruita, CO; as well as nieces and nephews from coast to coast and locally Carey (Brady) Rodgers and Heath (Holly) Martin of Platte City.

We also wish to acknowledge Cary Standiferd, attorney at law and conservator for Terry, for not only his legal care as well as his personal concern for our loved one over the years. Thank you all so much!
