“Terry was an outstanding volunteer for the Kansas Golf Association,” according to KGA Executive Director Kim Richey.  “He was the perfect representative of our association and the gentleman’s game of golf.  He studied the rules, he gave us much of his time and expertise, but above all, he was a gracious, warm and loving soul.  In all my time spent with Terry, I never saw or heard him become upset, impatient or even frustrated!  You can’t say that about most golfers.”

Dr. Terry Duncan had a successful career in orthodontic dentistry in the Wichita area.  He was a member and leader in many professional associations.  He also had a top priority of a strong marriage and loving family.  He was a popular member of Crestview Country Club and then Flint Hills National Golf Club.
