UK UK

LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) UK announced Monday that former UK basketball player and UK leader Terry B. Mobley has died.

He died Monday morning at the age of 74, surrounded by his family. UK says he had been battling a long illness.

“I served with Terry on the Board of Trustees for some time before I ever knew he was one of Rupp’s players, and I never heard about it from Terry,” said UK President Eli Capilouto. “His focus was on service to the University, to his community, to his faith and to his family. His wise, quiet and private counsel was a source of great comfort and help to me in my first years at UK. He always put the institution and its needs first, and I knew that when he spoke publicly, which was rare, that it was coming from a place of considerable reflection, thought and years of knowledge about the University and the Commonwealth.”

He worked in many positions at the University. He joined their fledging development office, was the chief development officer, served as director of development and chief development officer, interim athletic director, vice president for development and vice president for institutional advancement, overseeing various external affairs units for the university.

Mobley also served on UK's board of the Business Partnership Foundation, Gluck Equine Research Foundation, Center on Aging Foundation, Mining Engineering Foundation, and the UK Development Council.

Arrangements are being handled by Milward on Broadway with services taking place at Calvary Baptist Church.
