Ted Paschall Nance

Ted Paschall Nance, 84, of Paris, Tennessee, died Saturday, June 20, 2020, at his residence. 

He was born March 30, 1936 in the Jones Mill community as the ninth of 10 children of Guy Bronson Nance and Lamora Montez Paschall Nance. He was a lifelong resident of Henry County, Tennessee,whose ancestors settled there in the 1820s. On Feb. 17, 1968, he married Judith “Judy” Robison.

He was a member of First Baptist Church in Paris and a U.S. Army veteran, serving in 1958 and 1959. One of his favorite hobbies was genealogy, and he and Judy spent more than 45 years tracing his roots through many states. After working for a few years at the Milan Arsenal in Milan, Tennessee, and Emerson Electric in Paris, he was employed by Fisher Price Toys in 1973, soon after they started up in Murray. He worked there as an industrial engineer until his retirement in 1992. This stimulated a new interest and he became a collector of old, wooden Fisher Price toys. These two hobbies provided Ted and Judy with many fun trips, tracing down a genealogy clue, or finding a new toy for his extensive collection.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by four sisters, Esther Deering, Ruby Haygood, Buthel Cowden and May Nell Wilkerson; and four brothers, Noble Lee Nance, John B. Nance, Charles Franklin Nance and Bobby Nathan Nance. 

Ted is survived by his wife, Judy Robison of Paris; one sister, Gwen Gingles of Murray; one sister-in-law, Jacqui Pingree of Paris; and many nieces and nephews.

The funeral service is at 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 24, 2020, at First Baptist Church in Paris, Tennessee, with Trent Bullock, Jerry Massey and Kenny Locke officiating. Burial will be in Walker Cemetery in Paris. Visitation will be from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday, June 23, 2020, at First Baptist Church. Visitors are asked to enter through the FBC Welcome Center doors off of Ruff Street and exit through the sanctuary doors down the front steps of the church. Guests are also asked to please observe all recommended social distancing restrictions and guidelines for social gatherings during this time. Visitation will continue from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 24, 2020, at the church. Serving as pallbearers will be Mike Williams, Greg Story, Joe Houston, Jack Tarkington, Jamie Locke and Laramie Locke. Honorary pallbearers are Horace Whitehead, Grover Hudspeth, Norm Gras and members of the Friendship Sunday school class.
