Teddy worked construction for years throughout Omaha and Kansas City, specializing in drywall and painting. He spent the last 10 years working as a manager in a neighborhood convenience store.
Teddy had a strong passion for fishing. His favorite fish to catch were crappie but he always said whatever was biting he liked catching. He could sit on the bank for hours waiting for those fish to bite. He also loved to hunt, rabbit, quail, duck, you name it he caught it. In his spare time Teddy enjoyed drawing and playing his guitar. He taught himself how to play and even wrote his own music. During football season, he was definitely excited ‘bout those Chiefs.
He enjoyed spending time with his family and he was most proud of being PopPop to his two grandchildren.
One of his favorite sayings was ‘I aint making no noise.’
