Obituary for Terrence "Hector" Downs

Terrence grew up in Detroit but spent most of his life in the little town that he loved, Clawson. Terrence was born August 31, 1961 in Detroit, Michigan to Thomas and Elizabeth Downs. 

Terrence graduated from Clawson High School in 1980 and was a state championship wrestling contender. He has been actively involved in the Clawson wrestling program since 1976.

Most recently as the Head Wrestling Coach he helped many of his players make it to the state competition, even forgoing his own chemotherapy treatment to be there for them. Terrence was also involved in the Clawson Boosters and a devoted member of A.A.
