Terrence was born into a large loving family on December 23, 1960 to Larry Cheese Sr. and Teresa Cheese in East Baltimore. He was preceded in death by his parents as well as his sister Veronica (Young). He is survived by 3 brothers: Larry Jr., Michael, Erik, and one sister Vanessa (Coleman); and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Terrence attended Forest Park High School in Baltimore and he joined the Army right after high school. He eventually returned to Baltimore and worked as a machinist for various companies such as AAI in Hunt Valley, MD., and Ward Machinery in Cockeysville, MD.
Everyone knew the Cheese Family. It was such a unique last name once you met one of the Cheeses you never forgot them. Terrence was known as the quiet one. He loved all kinds of music and was known to be the first one on the dance floor when the music came on. He especially liked R&B and old school music. He really loved working in the yard, and if you visited him, he made it clear not to walk on the grass but to use the sidewalk all the way up to the door. He will be sorely missed by family and friends as we remember all of the things about him that made us laugh.
We have many childhood memories of fun times at home with Terrence. Into his adulthood he loved model trains and still had a collection of them. He also loved sports and his favorite teams were: the Oakland A’s, Oakland Raiders and Golden State Warriors. His brothers often joked with him about those teams.
The wisest decision he ever made in his life was studying the Bible and he was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses over 10 years ago. We look forward to being reunited with him on a paradise earth as Jehovah has promised in the scriptures at Rev 21: 3, 4 and Isaiah 65:21 -22.
