Terry was educated in the Humboldt City School System. He retired from IMS as a heavy equipment operator.

He professed his faith in Christ and was baptized at Avondale Baptist Church in Humboldt, where he remained a member.

Terry found pleasure and comfort in listening to recordings of Southern Gospel music especially the Gaithers.

Earthly and materialistic things were not of great importance to Terry. He loved the beauty of nature and God’s creative powers. In earlier years, he was an avid hunter and fisherman. He along with his brother, Ray, enjoyed visiting their friends in the Amish Community. They enjoyed spending their spare time working and taking part in adventures with their Amish friends.

Terry married  the love of his life, Judy Sherrod, on September 30, 1982. Together, they raised two daughters, Jinnifer and Christina. He then enjoyed some of the happiest times of his life as he became Papaw to Ian, Drew, Laney, Elijah, Emma and Ella.

There was never a dull moment when the grandchildren were around providing lots of excitement and free entertainment.

Terry was preceded in death by his father, Earl Hopkins; two brothers, James Earl Hopkins and Tommie Joe Hopkins; mother and father-in-law, Joe and Virginia Sherrod; and grandparents, Allen and Theo Johnson and Edgar and Lessie Hopkins.

He leaves to cherish his memory, his widow, Judy Sherrod Hopkins of Humboldt; two daughters, Jinnifer French of Fruitland and Christina Maggard and her husband Michael of Bradford; mother, Lola Mae Johnson Hopkins of Humboldt; brother, Ray Hopkins and his wife Margaret of Humboldt; sister, Debbie Boals and her husband Benny of Gibson; and six grandchildren, Ian, Drew, and Laney French of Fruitland and Elijah, Emma and Ella Maggard of Bradford.
