Ted Jr. was a jack of all trades but his first love was mechanics, especially “VW” cars, his specialty. He grew up working in the shop on all kinds of cars, but loved his black “VW” Bug the most. Over the years, people would seek him out for advice about their cars. He would help anyone who asked and always did his best for them. Teddy was loved by many and he will be missed very much.
