Terry Allen Cowles (1953-2024) was a devoted family man, friend, community member and Christian. Terry was born to Larma and Norma Cowles on December 27, 1953, and was the youngest of eight children. 
 In the fall of 1974, a young lady visiting his church caught his eye and as he said, "It was love at first sight." On April 3, 1976, Terry wed his bride, Betty Darlene Davison. Their 48-year marriage was blessed with two daughters that he was immensely proud of. Those daughters are continuing Terry's legacy. Brooke Vincent (Jeremy) provided Terry with his very best friends, his grandsons, Colby and Cooper Vincent. His youngest daughter, Meagan Cowles (Stephen Hoffman), have taught him that his grandpuppy Oliver is to be loved as much as his other boys. 
 One of Terry's strongest traits was his incredible work ethic. He has worked for decades as a farmer. He spent time as an EMT and as a laborer for his brother's business, Cowles Concrete. Additionally, he spent time employed at Trace Die Cast, SR of Kentucky, and he began working at Bowling Green Metalforming when it opened until he became ill in March. 
 Terry was also active in the community. He was awarded the FFA American Farmer Degree, was a past chairman of the Edmonson County Soil Conservation Committee Board of Supervisors, Past President of the Edmonson County Farm Bureau Board of Directors, and served on the State of Kentucky Farm Bureau Natural Resources Advisory Committee. Also, while working on the Farm Bureau Committees, Terry helped establish the local Edmonson County scholarship programs for graduating seniors and helped begin the Farm Safety Day Program for the county. 
 Terry has been a lifelong member of Boiling Springs Church of Christ. He is survived by two of his brothers, Kenneth Cowles (Linda) and Ronald Cowles. He was preceded in death by three brothers, two sisters, and his parents.
