Ted attended Oak Grove High School in Oak Grove, MS, then went on to the University of Southern Mississippi, majoring in chemistry.

Ted served in the U.S. Army National Guard and then the Tennessee Air National Guard for over 31 years, retiring with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He started his Federal Career with the Corps of Engineers in Memphis, TN. He left Memphis for Huntsville, AL where he worked in positions for the U.S. Army and the Department of Defense. Ted was a true patriot and worked tirelessly to support our troops. He had over 50 years of Federal Civil Service, and went on to work for various defense contractors closing out his career working for SRC, Inc. He was well known for his tireless work ethic and getting the mission accomplished, often at personal sacrifice.
