Huntington - A year after his passing, the community will have an opportunity to pay tribute to a well-known shutterbug.

A Celebration of Life/Memorial Service for Teddy Hedgecock is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, April 24 at Grace Gospel Church on  1111 Adams Ave.  Hedgecock passed away April 1, 2020 at 87.

A Raleigh County native, Teddy with his wife, Fonda, opened Hedgecock's Studio of Photography in 1962 following a stint in the U.S. Army, where he found his passion for the craft.   For the next 55 years, Hedgecock not only garnered recognition for his photography, but also for his mentorship of aspiring photographers   

In 2015, Hedgecock's son Jeff, a contributor to HuntingtonNews.net of sports and modeling shots, took over the family business, and carries on his father's legacy. 

Family will accept friends beginning at 10:30 a.m. The service will also be live streamed on Grace Gospel Church's  Website and Facebook page.
