Teddy Grissom

October 18, 1957 — November 21, 2018

Teddy Lamar Grissom, 61, of Hillsboro passed away Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at his home. Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, November 25, 2018 at Calvary Tabernacle in Moulton.

A student at Midway School and a veteran of the US Army National Guard, Teddy worked at Ascend for 27 years where he was known as “Blue”. He was a member of Calvary Tabernacle UPC where he served as an usher. Like all true Alabama fans (he loved Alabama football) Teddy looked forward to watching every game with his son. Teddy will be remembered as a great and loving husband, father, PawPaw, God-father and “Poppa Teddy” to all who knew him. He also enjoyed helping anyone in need, spending time with family and friends, and visiting the Burn Unit in Birmingham, where he loved giving out Christmas baskets and sharing his testimony of how God healed him. Many lives have been touched by his testimony.

Survivors include his wife of 41 years, Kay Grissom; son, Jason Grissom (Holly); grandchildren, Emily Dawn Grissom and Hannah Grace Grissom; God-daughter, Kayla Brianna Bogle; brothers, J.D. (Flo) Grissom, Anthony Grissom (Peggy), Randy Grissom (Lisa), Buddy Landers (Linda), Lynn Grissom, and Ricky Landers; and his fur baby, Gidget.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Johnny and Ethel Grissom; son, Waylon Lamar Grissom, grandmother, Lella Sparks, and mother-in-law, Evelyn McCary.

Pallbearers will be Brian Siniard, Tracy Brannon, Willy Borden, Steve Martin, Charlie Blasingame, and Micheal Woodard. Honorary pallbearers are Clyde King, Buddy Hall, Trent Heflin, Will Borden, Jacob Mitchell, and Marshall Tucker.
