Teddy Ray “Ted” Smith

Teddy Ray “Ted” Smith, 70, passed away on Friday; December 24, 2021 in Weatherford, Texas. He was born June 4, 1951 in Oak Grove, Louisiana to William “Bill” Smith and Christine Davis Smith.


Ted was preceded in death by his father, William L. “Bill” Smith.

Ted truly had a heart for others. He was generous, patient, and kind. He made everyone feel welcome and valued. There was a special place in his heart for kids of all ages. He was an honorary “Papa” to many lucky children and teenagers throughout his life – always willing to drop everything to help or comfort those in need. He leaves much love behind for those lucky enough to have known him.
