  4. Tezmo was the most lovable larrikin we will ever know.
    He taught us all so much about respecting everyone we meet, working hard, playing hard and making the most of every minute we have.
    His infectious laugh, his quirky eyebrow raises and his unique joke telling will never be forgotten.
    Our most sincere condolences go to his beautiful family.
    Lisa, Brigitte and Lachie, Kath and Tom, Tim, Michelle and Liam or hearts and souls are with you all.
    Boom Boom, Heather, Samantha and Steve, Hayley and Jordan.

  6. Our deepest condolences go out to Lisa and her family. I remember Terry as a person so generous with his time and a man who I looked up to. We never got to go to a Bombers match together and but I always enjoyed talking with Terry about the Bombers or how Liam was going at footy.

  11. To an old schoolmate and friend , growing up in Sunbury in the 60’s and 70’s was fantastic. I can remember most weekends in Spring and Summer were spent at “Goonawarra” exploring the countryside and having fun times.
    It’s so sad to hear of your passing , Terry….taken too early , mate.
    As Cat Stevens’ song sang….”remember the days at the old schoolyard”….I certainly do !
    RIP Terry
    Condolences to Lisa and family & the whole McMahon family.

  23. Terry, so many memories of our times together in Sunbury, then with the Colac crew, the uni days living together, water skiing, and many more. You showed people how to be a gentleman. Never an angry word, always empathy for others and your ways of doing things kept us all entertained. A great friend, husband and father. Your legacy will live on. Until we meet again my cousin and friend.
    Deepest Sympathy to Lisa, the kids, Auntie Jan and all the family.
