Unfortunately I could not make it as planned Truck Stuff came up . I’m sure My Friend Ted would understand. He taught us how to be a fighter with will and determination for the 25 years that I have known him. Rest In Peace My Friend , you will be truly missed.

It is with heavy heart that we learned of Ted's passing. Although we hadn't known him for a long time, what we know of him is his love and dedication for what he loved! His presence will definitely be missed. Please accept our condolences for your loss.

Jack Abbott and Nona Heinzen, Bloomingdale, GA,

My prayers go out to all of Teds Family and friends , I first meet Ted in 1981 at the Mack Truck dealership. We have been friends ever since. I loved Ted. I am sure we will be together again RIP Ted.

Joe Pierson, Culloden, GA

So sad to hear of your loss of Ted. It was a privilege to work with him in the same industry - we were competitors and friends. He was a tough competitor for me for over 30 years! Our loss is great gain for Heaven! Regards, Jason Williams President Freightliner of Savannah

Lenda and Tony, I'm so sorry to hear of Ted's passing. I cherish the time I was able to spend with Ted (and Shadow) at the SCORE track and board meetings. It's very difficult to believe that his one time hobby is still in operation after all these years. I miss not setting up my bench next to yours.

Ric Norton, Dover, DE

I am so sorry for your loss. Ted was a great man who was always willing to offer helping hand and a genuine smile. He shared so many stories of the old days with me that I almost feel I lived them with him. I was lucky to call him my friend and I will truly miss him.

Donald Holder, Blackville , Sc

Ted was a treasured member and leader of the Buccaneer Region, Sports Car Club of America and contributed much to the success of the Region. Our consolations go out to his family and friends in this difficult time.

Don Johnson, Guyton, GA - Georg

So sorry for your loss. Ted was a gentleman in every sense of the word. I dealt with him through truck sales for many years.

Rick Shuman, Pembroke, Ga

We were very saddened at the news of Teds passing. He was a true gentleman and a genuine friend. He will be missed and remembered always. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and all who loved him.

So sorry for your loss I know he will be missed

On Monday, August 5, 2019 Theodore Dale Migchelbrink, loving husband and father of three children, passed peacefully at the age of 77 at Pruitt Health. Born and raised in Parma, Ohio, he made Savannah Georgia his second home. A one-time chemist, he proved to be a successful heavy-duty truck salesman for over 40 years.

Ted was preceded in death by his Mother Antoinette, Father Theodore, brother Robert and sister Nancy. Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 49 years Linda, daughter Terri (Jerry) Lanham, sons Anthony (Melissa Mauldin) and Theodore Jr (Dejla), Brother Timothy (Nancy) plus 3 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.

Ted had a passion for motorsports. He often drove the pace car and was a paddock Marshall at Roebling Road Raceway. He was proud to serve as Regional Executive and Treasurer for Buccaneer Region SCCA. He also loved to engage his community through the dog park on 41st Street, developing the S.C.O.R.E  R/C car track at Lake Mayer and many other adventures. Ted was also an ordained minister and presided over the wedding of his grand-daughter Tiphaney to her husband Matthew Grossestreuer.

Ted leaves behind his beloved canine Marley, a pooch he handpicked himself. On the weekends, you might have found him and Marley at the dog park, oyster roasts or just chilling out by the smoker on the porch.

He was known for his dry wit, leadership skills, and his kindness and willingness to help others.

In lieu of flowers please support St. Jude Children’s Hospital, a cause held close to Ted’s heart for many years.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, August 10, 2019 at 11 am at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel, 7200 Hodgson Memorial Dr, Savannah, GA 31406.
