Terry Glenn Jr, 22, son of late Dallas Cowboys star Terry Glenn, was found lifeless on the bathroom floor when he was home with his friends and family in Columbus, Ohio, on Thanksgiving day and eventually reported to be dead due to severe drug overdose.

Terry Jr had been talking about his personal loss off and on, and quite openly so on his social media posts. He expressed his difficulty in coping with his father’s death.

A few hours before his death, Terry Jr had left a tweet for his late father, saying, "I miss him so much. this time of the year is the hardest by far man. This was his holiday and the last one got cut short right before we were allllll gonna be together... really just wonder why.' 

In another tweet, he wrote, "Thanksgiving was my dad's favorite game to play in as a Cowboy and you best believe ya boy was always right there in the stands."

Terry Glen Sr died two years ago in a tragic car accident when he was traveling back home from a Cowboys game. His vehicle hit a concrete barrier, making his car roll over and ejected him off his driver’s seat. He died at midnight on November 20, 2017, just a little over two years ago today. In January 2018, an autopsy report was released which showed that Terry had an alcohol level twice the permissible limit by law at the time of death, reported The Daily Mail.

He also posted a photo of himself with a fan of his late father, a few days before his death. The Instagram post read, “See these moments right here are a huge reason I’m still alive and pushing harder and harder every day. I promise you the dude was almost in tears when he met me, wanted my autograph, a picture and everything. THIS right here means EVERYTHING to me.”

“No matter how big or how small I will continue to carry on my dad's legacy every single day of my life. And nothing it’s going to stop me. This is just the beginning man I’m telling you 2020 I’m coming,” he continued in his caption.
