Ted Workman, 89, of Marion passed from this life on Sunday, February 13, 2022 at Western Baptist Hospital in Paducah. Ted was born in Livingston County on November 7, 1932, to Marvin and Leona (Johnson) Workman.
A lifelong farmer, he was dedicated to raising quality Red Angus cattle and in recognition of his commitment, he was named the first “Outstanding Livestock Producer,” by the Crittenden County Chamber of Commerce in 1982.
A quiet man, who daily expressed his thankfulness for his many blessings, he always helped anyone he could, never wanting to draw attention to himself.
He is survived by his wife Martha (Marty), and his sisters Betty (Sylvan) Belt, Pearl (William) Byarley, and Nancy (James) Byarley, all of Marion.
Cherishing his memory are many nieces and nephews.
Those also treasuring his memory are his stepdaughters Karen Foreman, and Kellie (Daniel) Tomita and their families.
