Teddy Gene Gray, 83, of Mossy, WV passed away July 28, 2023, at Bowers Hospice house in Beckley, WV surrounded by family.

Born February 26, 1940, in Milburn, WV, he was the son of the late Clyde and Leona Opal “Hyden” Gray.

Teddy attended Kingston High School. At the age of 18, he enlisted in the United States Army serving from 1958-1960 earning rank as Class E5 SGT. He was honored to be a part of the 3RD Armored Division, 27th artillery, “C” battery. While in Freidberg, Germany, Teddy had the pleasure of meeting and serving alongside his idol, Elvis Presley. 

Following his military service, Teddy moved to Lorain, OH. While in Lorain he was employed by the Ford Motor company. It was in Ohio where he met the love of his life and started his family. In 1976, Teddy brought his family back to his hometown to take over his mother and father’s business; later known as Midway T & C. Teddy’s entrepreneurial spirit did not stop with Midway T & C; for over 30 years Teddy ran and expanded Midway T & C while also opening several other successful businesses. Greater than any feeling of success to Teddy was his overwhelming love and pride for his family.

Along with his parents, Teddy was proceeded in death by a sister, Drucilla Louise Foster. 

Those left to cherish his memory include his loving wife of 60 years, Charlotte Louise Gray; children, Tina Louise Sumpter (Jerry), and Teddy Charles Clyde Gray (Teresa); grandchildren, Ann Louise Arrington (Josh), and Colby Lane Gray (Grace); one Great-grandson, Collin Louis Gray. He is also survived by three sisters, Brenda Hughes (Howard), Judy Gildenmeister, and Elsie Gray; two brothers, Clyde Gray, Jr (Mary), Jackie Gray (Christine), and an abundance of nieces and nephews.
