He was a 1976 graduate of Campbellsville High School.

Darrell Glen Tedder, 59, went home to be with his savior, unexpectedly, on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at his home in Lexington, SC.
Services are being held by Thompson Funeral Home in Lexington, SC. Officiating are Pastor Robert Jumper of Lexington SC, with music provided by Pastor Dan Rabon of Cayce, South Carolina and Joe Hollingsworth, of Memphis Tennessee.
Committal rites will be held at 10amCT/11amET, Saturday, July 22, 2017 at Brookside Cemetery, W Main Street, Campbellsville, KY.
He leaves behind:
Darrell was born in Campbellsville, KY. He was the son of the late Robert Glenn Tedder and Anna Lou Bottoms. Suffering the loss of his mother at the young age of 4, he was taken in and raised by the late Leonard & Hazel Barnes, who raised and treated him as if he was their son. He was married to Donna Dorsey in 1981 with whom he was blessed with 3 sons.
He graduated high school from Campbellsville High School in 1976. From an early age, he developed a hard work ethic working many different jobs at local restaurants, bowling allies, and service stations. His entry into the medical field began while working as an EMT for Campbellsville Fire and Rescue. He continued to work as a paramedic for Louisville Fire and Rescue where he achieved the rank of captain and was given the responsibility of being the head paramedic in Ronald Reagan's motorcade and was awarded supervisor of the year. He received his associate's degree from the University of Kentucky in Nursing. He used his nursing degree to work in many different settings such as surgery centers, hospital, and as a flight nurse.
As a paramedic and a nurse, he had a passion for helping people and continued to do that up until the day he passed away through working for Lexington Medical Center. His passion for helping those that were sick also extended beyond work to those that needed help in their homes without hesitation.
Outside of work, he enjoyed sports and the outdoors. He loved coaching the sports teams that his children participated in and spent the last 10 years working around baseball as an umpire. At home, he enjoyed working in the yard, watching the Atlanta Braves and the University of Kentucky, and working on perfecting his recipe for grilling ribs for his boys. He also enjoyed photography and liked to photograph teams and different sporting events.
Darrell accepted the Lord at the age of 9 and enjoyed attending gospel music concerts and participating in Easter dramas at the church. His greatest pride and joy in life was his three sons. He cared deeply for them and loved them with all he had. We love you.
