Terry graduated from Duncan High School in 1979. He attended jeweler's school in San Antonio, Texas, and also prepared for the ministry at North West University. He married the love of his life, Gina Kay Otey, on April 29, 1983, in Chickasha. To this union, two daughters were born - Sheena and Shana.

He owned and operated Schlein Jewelry, which was established as Eaton Jewelry by his grandparents, L.E. and Pearl Eaton. He was currently serving as the pastor of West Side Christian Church. He enjoyed fishing and camping with Gina, Larry and Gayla Patrick. Watching college football, especially the OU Sooners, watching westerns, and telling dumb jokes were fun times for him. Terry loved his family deeply. He enjoyed reminiscing with them about the good ol' days, visiting with them, and his many friends. He was very excited and thrilled when he traveled to Alaska to meet his grandson, Beckett McCoy for the first time.

Terry is survived by his wife of 35 years, Gina Kay; children, Sheena and husband Jeff Johnson of Duncan, and Shana and husband Matthew McCoy of Kenai, Alaska; granddaughter, Blaine Johnson; grandsons, Carter Johnson and Beckett McCoy; and sister, Sharla and husband Nathan Tate of Blanchard.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Renee Schlein; and grandparents, William and Zee Schlein and L.E. and Pearl Eaton.
