Barry Quentin Tedder died Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017.
He was born July 25, 1946, in Borger, Texas, to Howard and Doris Tedder.
On July 19, 1966, a car accident changed Barry’s life forever. Barry lived with his parents in a house on First that he called home. He would sit on the porch and wave at everyone as they passed by and would holler “howdy.” You also could see Barry walk down Main Street in Newton wearing his fedora hat and carrying his briefcase.
Barry lived in Pleasant View Home in Inman since 2008. The staff there took wonderful care of him, for which his family is very grateful. Prior to living in Inman, he lived with his sister, Nancy, in Newton. For a number of years, he lived in Salina.
Barry is survived by his brothers, Cliff and Connie Tedder of Austin, Texas, Grady Tedder of Newton, Calvin Tedder of North Newton, Ken and Cindy Tedder of El Dorado, Loren and Lori Tedder of North Newton, and Steven and Mariann Tedder of Allen, Texas; Mike Malcom, brother-in-law of Hesston; and many nieces and nephews.
Barry was preceded in death by his parents, Howard and Doris Tedder, and sisters, Phylis Tedder Malcom and Nancy Tedder Bryant and her husband, Bob Bryant Jr.
Services for Barry will be on Saturday, Feb. 11. Viewing will be from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Graveside service will be at noon at Greenwood Cemetery in Newton.
A family gathering will be at Loren and Lori Tedder’s home in North Newton. All are welcome.
