Teddy was born February 29, 1936, to Jesse and Ethel Perritt Fincher. He passed away peacefully at his home on January 24, 2024, with his loving family by his side. Teddy was a man of many talents. He worked as a truck driver, as well as for ConAgra. But he is most well known as the watermelon man. Teddy loved selling vegetables. It gave him an opportunity to talk to everyone who stopped by. He was a very gracious man, who most often, would not charge for the vegetables, if he did, it was not for much. Teddy also enjoyed hunting and fishing. But the greatest joy in his life was his wife, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Teddy will be missed by all those that knew him, but especially by his loving family.
