The country singer shared footage of Ted over the years on his Twitter alongside a heartfelt message about him.
“G Pa, Faith’s father passed away last week at 88 yrs old,” Tim tweeted. “He was the sweetest, kindest most gentle man I’ve ever known……. No man in my life has ever made such an impact on me as to how to be a human, a father and a friend.”
Tim continued in further tweets, “I’ll never, in 10 lifetimes, be able to live up to his example, but man, he has set a mark that all of us should strive for.”
“His legacy will live on through the 3 beautiful souls he raised, Faith and her brothers, Steve and Wesley,” he said, adding, “I’m sure a day will not pass for the rest of my life , that he will not show up in my thoughts. We all love you G Pa.”
Faith was adopted by Ted and his wife Edna Perry when she was an infant in the town of Star, Mississippi. Edna passed away in 2016 at the age of 80.
