Terrance R. "Terry" Gough ( Redmond 1967 )

posted: Jan 8, 2016

Terry, 69, died November 28, 2015, in Eugene, Oregon. He went to all 12 grades in Orofino, Idaho, graduating in 1964. Before receiving both his B.S. and J.D. from the University of Idaho, he served from 1969-1971 in the U.S. Army, including a tour in Vietnam.

After serving in the Vietnam War, Terry decided to become an attorney and change the world. He zealously defended his clients' civil rights and earned some newspaper ink. Most of all, he received the respect of his clients and the Eugene, Oregon legal community. He was a member of the OCDLA and ACLU. His motto was, "Half the battle is staying calm." Terry practiced law for 41 years, until his passing.
