Virginia Beach - Teddie R. LeMond passed away suddenly on January 20, 2014 of natural causes. He was born in Medina, TN on November 11, 1931. Preceded in death by his wife Ethel Mae, and his two sons Steven and Larry David and a sister Nell Blankenship of Humboldt TN.
Teds love of nature and life started at an early age riding horses in rural Tennessee and a train ride at 16 to boot camp in San Diego. His love of Navy life would last his lifetime, with his love of family and home town friends; he would continue to add new friends wherever he hung his hat. His continued his career working in civil service for the Navy Weather Department. Always gathering family and friends, old and new for hunting, snow skiing, and fishing from one of his Grady-Whites on the Chesapeake Bay or he would take you for a plane ride, up in the sky he loved. His favorite alone time was rising before sun up and flying a plane along the Virginia coast and watching the sun rise over the sea and beach he loved. In his senior years it was his love of golf with friends, and reminiscing to all who would listen about his favorite fairways and holes at the many courses he played. Traveling and reading a good book, especially military history, were things he also liked to share. His greatest pleasures were always interacting with young and old, from the guard at the base saying "have a good day Chief", to his many favorite restaurants from the Shore Drive corridor to the beautiful rural Pungo area who would start making his Manhattan as he walked in the door. Along these same areas on Sunday you would find him worshipping at different churches finding old friends and making new. Ted never met a person that didn't become a friend.
He is survived by two sisters Wilma McKenzie and husband Homer of Germantown, TN and Carolyn Kimbrell of Medina, TN, and beloved nieces and nephews. Ted is survived by numerous friends and two very special friends Marilyn McDonald and Todd Alspaugh .Ted retired from the US Navy and from Civil Service.
