Wicker, Teddy Ray "Ted"

Obituary

Wicker, Teddy Ray “Ted”, age 76, of Frisco, TX passed away on August 2, 2021, in San Antonio. He was born June 3, 1945, at home in McKinney, TX. A lifetime carpenter, he was most recently employed by WB General Contracting. Prior to serving his country he learned to train and break horses in Addison, Texas.  A proud US Army Veteran he served in the Vietnam War from 1965-1968, and then moved to Arizona to train Arabian horses, before settling in California for a time where his daughters were born. For the past 34 years dad has made a home for his daughters, grandchildren, and anyone else who needed it in Frisco TX. Our Dad was a man of exceptional talent with a work ethic that was second to none.  Anyone who met him would attest to his kind, giving and caring nature. The type of man who would go out of his way to make sure anyone had whatever they needed. He enjoyed gardening, building, watching all his Dallas teams, and spending time with his family and friends.

Dad was a loving son and brother as well as a devoted father, but his number 1 title was Grandpa, and he was ecstatic about the pending arrival of his first great-grandchild. Preceded in death by his father and mother Ernest and Lillian Wicker, brother Ernest, sister Annie, and nephew Charlie McCoy.  He leaves behind his loving daughters Sarah (Brian) Priest of Providence Village, TX and Cassandra Luce of Lewisville, TX, as well as the pride and joys of his life his grand-daughters Melina (Dalton) Croley of Wylie, Ali Luce of Lewisville, Sydney Priest (his Gemini twin) of Providence Village, and treasured grandson Peyton Priest of Providence Village, TX.  He is also survived by his brothers Alvis, Jimmy, Johnny, and Jerry and sisters Betty, Nancy, Sue, and Cindy as well as a host of nieces, nephews and friends.  He is already deeply missed by all who knew him and loved him.

A funeral service is scheduled for August 21, 2021.  Visitation will be from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm and a Celebration of Life service with military honors at 5:00 pm in the Brooks Family Chapel at the North Dallas Funeral Home located at 2710 Valley View Lane, Dallas, Texas 75234.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
