Terry was born on July 31, 1938 in St. Paul; the son of William and Ruth (Webb) Schubert. Being raised in St. Paul, he attended Nativity Parochial School before graduating from Cretin High School. After attending two years at St. John’s University in Collegeville, MN he completed his BFA degree at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

Upon his honorable discharge, he returned to the classroom/studio at Rochester Institute of Technology – School For American Craftsmen where he completed a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Jewelry & Silversmithing. With this background, he began a long rewarding career in the arts. He started teaching at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. After four years he took a position in the Art Department at the University of Wisconsin River Falls where he taught for 28 years. When not teaching, Terry’s passion and life work was creating art – unique pieces of jewelry, holloware and liturgical works in metals, wood and precious stones for commissions, shows and competitions. Awards he was proud of was a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation grant and the International Pearl competition. For relaxation Terry enjoyed maintaining his St. Croix River bank property – especially the woods and hiking and cross country skiing in the nearby Kinnickinnic River State Park. Travel around the U.S. and Europe was a great interest. His favorite trip was a Mediterranean sailing cruise along the coast of Italy aboard a schooner. On March 26, 1964, he was united in marriage to his best friend and soul mate June Kahl. This union began a 56-year journey of love, adventure, and memories. It would be further blessed with two children Stephanie and Erik.
