Uncle Teddy was a great guy and a fun uncle, always ready for a laugh and willing to act silly for the kids. He had a calming and jovial presence and I have many fond memories of him from holiday gatherings over the years at Mama Bill and Grandad's house (Billie and Carl Frazier). One thing I remember in particular, being at Ted and Donna's house one time, and I found that Teddy had a copy of the original Diablo computer game. I was super jealous at the time, since my parents wouldn't let me play it. But I always thought it was really cool that Teddy was interested in computers and computer games, and just having fun in general. He never felt like he was too old or too serious to have a good time, and live life to the fullest.
