He was born April 19, 1936 in Sioux City, Iowa to John Walter Burnes and Evelyn Nora (Roeder) Burnes. He lived in Tracy and Kasson, graduating from Kasson High School in 1954. Terry enlisted in the U. S. Navy following graduation, attending radar and electronic countermeasure school at Treasure Island, San Francisco, California. He boarded the USS Cavalier APA 37 attaining the rank of Petty Officer 1st Class as radarman and part of the Combat Information Center (CIC). Terry was awarded a commendation from the commanding officer for his work on board the Cavalier during "Operation Strongback" off the coast of Korea and the Philippine Islands in April 1957. Departing the U. S. Navy in August 1958, Terry attended junior college for two years while employed at IBM in Rochester. Terry began IBM as a machine accountant and then became a programmer with development of the second generation computers. Terry left management in Rochester in 1978, moving to San Jose, California, where he became the information and data security manager for the San Jose Development Laboratory. In 1987 his assignment took him to Hong King as a SEAR (South East Asia Region) data and business security manager.
