He also completed graduate work at TCU in student personnel administration.
“He was an exceptionally fine physician, he cared about the students at TCU and provided excellent care over 32 years,” Hallam said.
During his time at TCU, Dr. Terrell oversaw a number of changes to the health center including the transition a 30-bed hospital to the modern center it is today. As the former co-chairman of the Student Insurance Healthcare Committee, Dr. Terrell also helped TCU develop the student and faculty health care plans.

A memorial service will be held on Friday at noon at Thompson’s Harveson & Cole Funeral Home in Fort Worth.
