About Teddy Osborne
Grandpa was amazing to me. He was gentle, loving, stern when needed, forgiving, and open-minded.
He let a lot of us work with him on his jobs. I absolutely loved hearing him tell the story of how I convinced him to let me work with him one summer. He tried to tell me the men I'd be around weren't nice. I told him whatever they could say, I'd already heard at college. He couldn't argue anymore. So I did everything from payroll to running a crane. I assisted him in welding, cabinet-making and was impressive with my pipe-cutting skills.
I always love learning new skills and I certainly learned a lot of them that summer, but what I value the most was seeing the smile on his face when he talked about how proud he was of me.
Everybody loved Grandpa and I miss him dearly.
