Teddy Sawyer Sweat, age 70, passed away Monday, September 6, 2021 at his home.
If you needed a car – wanted to sell a car – talk about a car, Teddy was your man. Teddy's world was prioritized by God, family, and cars. Teddy was a loving husband to Judy for 43 years, dad to Heather and friend to all; especially his MOPAR Muscle Car buddies. There wasn't a vacation that didn't involve a car show. Teddy was a member of Elizabeth United Methodist Church. His kind, gentle, loving way will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
