Leonard was an accomplished bass guitarist, recording music professionally with the group, Heaven Bound. His final recording was playing bass for the song “Hold On” written by his son David Terrell and Jamie Knight. Leonard was a member of the Lighthouse Holiness Church in Sulphur, where he played bass guitar. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing.

Survivors include his wife Betty; two sons, David and Steven Terrell of Sulphur; two brothers, Floyd Terrell of Plano, TX and Jimmy Terrell of Canton, TX; as well as 9 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren.
