On the Passing of our Tai Chi brother, Terry Neu
So sorry to announce that we’ve lost one of our dear Tai Chi brothers, Terry
Neu. He passed unexpectedly Tuesday morning from an apparent medical
Terry was one of those people who, the first time you meet him, made you
feel like you’ve known him forever. A generous soul with a wonderful sense
of humor and always a willing contributor to our local Tai Chi efforts, he
will be dearly missed.
Many of you have known Terry for some time, met him in classes, attended the
World Tai Chi Day event in Colchester or worked on the WTCQD board with him
and Mark. This man had a global impact far beyond our local area – teaching
classes for Sacred Heart University in the Middle East, the US and Central
and South America. He was part of community rebuilding efforts in El
Salvador and elsewhere. A long time football fan who loved the Patriots,
the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans Thea and I would run into him at
the stadium at almost every game we attended.
My heart goes out to his daughter, Rachael and his family. Keep them in your
thoughts. George Hoffman
