We mourn the loss of Denny Lee Tedder, 31, of Taylorsville.

Denny was on this earth from October 23, 1982 until March 1, 2014. Denny's wonderful and infectious smile warmed the heart of anyone who met him. The love we have for him will burn bright in our hearts forever. We look forward to the day when our souls will reunite.

Denny excelled in school, graduating from Columbus North High School in 2001. He also attended Indiana University in Bloomington and Ivy Tech College in Columbus. He attended the First Baptist Church in Columbus.

He enjoyed basketball and was always looking for a game. He loved his music and loved building bonfires with his brothers.

He loved tinkering in the garage with Grandpa Moore and Grandma Moore was the apple of his eye. He loved going to Anderson Falls with them and visiting Chicken Creek Ranch.

The funeral will be Thursday at 2 p.m. at Norman Funeral Home in Hope with Jonathan Titus officiating the service. Visitation will be from noon until service time. Burial will be at Flat Rock Baptist Cemetery west of Clifford.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that monetary donations be made to Norman Funeral Home to help defray Denny's funeral expenses.
