Terry was a wonderful Board member.  He served for 10 years on the Board.


Terry was a delight to work with.  He was very passionate about protecting Wall Lake.  He was a solid guy who kept us focused on our mission.


Terry was able to balance this thoughtfulness with a sense of humor.  When Terry spoke, we were either in deep thought or having a laugh.


Terry was an innovator.  He encouraged us to stock walleye in Wall Lake, and this has been a great success.  Also, he came up with the idea of our Kayak The Wall event, which has quickly become our most popular event.  Terry really wanted Wall Lake to have a family oriented non-motorized event, and his vision made this possible.


Wall Lake has been lucky to be on the list of things that Terry cared about.  Wall Lake has lost a friend, and so have we.

Next time you catch a nice walleye, or Kayak The Wall, please think of Terry Deike.
