Terrence Joseph Schulte
Terrence Joseph Schulte "Terry", 73, of Richmond, Virginia, passed away peacefully on Friday, 13 September, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Remembering our childhood brings happy memories - the pancake breakfasts my mother served. Roaming the alleys. Laddie. Walking home from school. Good times. Hugs
