Terry was my all time favorite Komet.  Loved that hip check.  I always called him the Silver Fox.  He thorougfhly enjoyed the wild ride and slid into Heaven in a cloud of dust.  RIP Terry.

Terry and Cal were my favorite d-men duo of all time. They complimented each other so well and they stood up for each other and their teammates something last years Komets team could have learned from them. Terry is one of the reasons I truly miss real "old time" Komet hockey. Year after year we were blessed to see him throw those wicked hip checks. I also loved his wrist shot. I remember once when he scored a gozl form our own face off circle. His wrist shot was about waist high and bounced on fron of the goalie then bounced into the net. RIP TERRY! You will be missed.

So sorry to hear of Terry's passing. He was one of my all time favorite defenseman. No one could throw a hip check like Pemmer! He played old time hockey in the good old days. He will be sorely missed.

"Every generation draws a certain group of people, and then eventually they all show up at the arena.  Everybody in Fort Wayne knows a Komet, either a current one or a former player.  It's just a unique municipality."

So very sorry to learn about the passing of Terry Pembroke.  He was part of my favorite team ('72-'73).  Back in those days the teams just played four defensemen.  His hipchecks were legendary and even now, when one is delivered, my memory always goes back to Terry Pembroke.

His quote above certainly demonstrates his understanding in the importance of franchise recognition in terms of players, fans, and the community at large.

Each death should remind us of the fragility of life and serve to reach out to those close to us and give them a hug. 

Terry Pembroke fought through a lot and now its time for him to rest...in peace.
