    Teddy was like Family to my Family near and far. Many times my Mother 'RIP' Mable Fowler Gibbs or I would load him and his equipment up to go and DJ for events for us. Everyone knew Teddy, when I would go places without him "Where is Teddy " what I would be asked. What a great friend he was, #LongLivedTeddy
    Condolences to Mrs Russ, Myron, Derrick and All others. Love You like Family ❤️
