Obituary for Edward "Teddy" Tivnan, III

Edward “Teddy” James Tivnan, passed away Friday, June 7, 2019 at Duke University Hospital. Teddy was born in Boston, MA. Growing up in Durham, NC, he attended Durham Public Schools. Teddy’s first employment was at Honey’s, where he perfected the Teddy T. Grilled Cheese. After leaving Honey’s, he gained employment at CLS/ALS where he enjoyed many lifelong friendships. Relocating to Southern Pines, NC, he transitioned his employment to North Carolina Golf and Travel, Inc, a company he remained with until retiring due to health reasons.

In 2017 he returned to Durham, NC to be closer to extended family. Teddy commanded a room with his gregarious personality and smile. He delighted in creating joy for others and accomplished this through selfless acts and kindness. When not entertaining those around him, Teddy enjoyed watching endless episodes of MASH 4077 and The Munsters, as well as the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and Jaws movies, creating floral arrangements or anything in neon colors, making his family laugh, eating Chinese lunches with his mother, and inspiring others through his cooking skills. Passionate about the art of cooking, he created flavorful masteries that were enjoyed by friends and family.

Teddy is survived by his mother, Gwyn Dunnegan; daughters, Cameron Tivnan, Gwyneth Tivnan, Brinkley Tivnan; siblings, Mary Long (Robert), Cathi Lucas (Robert), Carol Reardon (Sean), Paul Tivnan (Mariya), Kenneth Clyde, Rhonda Clyde; nieces and nephews, Richard Sowards, Gini Cherry (Chris), Robert Long (Lauren), Ernie Long, Karley Long, Zach Lucas (Meghan), Megan Lucas, Tyler Lucas, William Milligan (Holly), Christopher Patrick Milligan (Gaby), Caitlin Milligan, Zachary Reardon (Krystyn), Megan Reardon-Coach (Johnny), Dakota Tivnan, Blayz Tivnan; and great nieces and nephews, Ellie, Christopher, Everest, Emilia, Lyla and Johnny, Jr.

The family will receive friends from 4 to 6 pm, Friday, June 14 at Clements Funeral Home in Durham, followed by a gathering of family and friends from 6 to 8 pm, in the Gathering Room at Clements.
