Terry Stephen Appleton passed away on July 29th, 2020 at the age of 70. He was born in Pulaski, Tennessee on December 1st, 1949.
Terry started learning to lay brick, block and rock with his father around the age of 7 and continued this work until the day he died. Terry was a master craftsman and mason and his work can be seen across middle Tennessee. He arrived early and left late. He was perfect in the planning and carrying out of a project and he saw to it with wry comments and dry observations that were often humorous and wise at the same time. To be sure the skill of his labor was only surpassed by the quality of his friendship which many enjoyed and will terribly miss.
