Teddy Arwood Begley

September 19, 1967 — June 21, 2022

Teddy Begley was born on September 19, 1967 in Lincolnton, NC. He passed away Tuesday, June 21, 2022 at home. Teddy lived at home with his beloved dog, Yoda of 14 years. Where there was Teddy, there was Yoda. Teddy loved Yoda more than anything in the world. Teddy loved spending time with his family and friends. He would never miss an event or gathering if he could help it, He loved having bonfires and aggravating his sister. He loved to cut-up with people. Teddy made friends everywhere he went. Teddy was so excited the day he reconnected with his daughter and grandchildren. He loved them so much and enjoyed visiting them and going to ball games.
