Midland County Judge Terry Johnson, 63, was born and raised in Midland, Texas. He graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1973. He is married to his lovely wife Paula. Together they have four children, two daughters, Kelly Ann and Amanda, and two sons, Tommy and Bill, along with eight grandchildren.
Terry has been self-employed for over 42 years. He started three companies from scratch and sold those businesses to move forward to where he is now.
Terry began his career as a Welder trainee for CSI which led to his creation of a field service welding company in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. This led to the creation of Terry’s Trailers, located on Garden City Highway that still services Midland.
Terry is now President and Owner of TCO Field Service, an oilfield construction company serving the Permian Basin of West Texas for 20 years. TCO has employed up to 185 employees at times and is a multi-service oilfield provider.
Not only is Terry an able-bodied entrepreneur, he also supports many charitable organizations with his efforts, time, money, and other resources. “If it involves kids, I’m in”, he says.
He is an avid outdoorsman and hunter, having taken game animals all over the country. An outfitter and guide for 10 years, Terry has seen the benefit that hunting brings to those involved. It was his love of the outdoors and appreciation for those serving their country through the military that ultimately led to the creation of a nonprofit organization known as Show of Support Military Hunt, Inc.
Being the founder and president of this organization is what Terry is most noted for. Show of Support was created to honor recently returning, combat-injured veterans of this “Global War on Terror” Show of Support, through its “Hunt for Heroes” program provides a welcome home for a job well done and a huge “Thank You” to these heroes through outdoor activities that include all-expense-paid hunting trips. To date, Show of Support has extended this opportunity to over 500 wounded veterans.
In November 2018, Terry won his first election in public office as Midland County Judge. His county government seat commenced on January 1, 2019.
