Mr. Ammon was a wonderful scout leader at Camp Kickapoo in the 1960s. He had a positive influence on many of us growing up in Missisippi in what seemed back then as turbulent times. But looking back on it, people like Mr. Ammon made growing up in MS a pretty good experience.

I was just thinking about Mr. Ammon the other day. I hate that wasn't in the loop about his passing or I would have been there. There was always a song that reminded me of him "The Leader of the Band." he was such an influence in my life and a unique man whom I will never forget. His talent was limitless and his love for music and teaching touched so many lives. May you rest now after a full life of teaching so many minds.

My life was enriched permanently by Ted Ammon. I know that many, many more who played under him at Cleveland High School feel the same way. Ted's gone yet his legacy lives on. R.I.P.

I am saddened to hear of Mr. Ammon's passing. I pray peace and comfort for his family.

Some of my fondest memories in life are of Mr. Ammon grooming Us, Pearl Jr High band members to become award winning champions. I also have very fond memories of those summer band camps. What awesome memories!

I had some of the most influential times in my life with Mr. Ammon: Jr. High Band Camps, he inspired my love of all kinds of music (and to major in Music) and his wild and crazy humor. So along “Fearless Leader”

Ted was the beloved Provisional Troop Scoutmaster at Camp Kickapoo near Clinton, MS for many summers where I was one of his Scouts and served on staff with him. Then in McComb we were Scoutmasters together, and he took the troop to Kickapoo for many more summers even after he moved to Pearl. Ted will be fondly remembered by many former Boy Scouts.

As a gawky skinny preteen, Mr. Ammon made me feel valuable and that I was capable of doing anything that I put 100% of myself into. I would have hung from the rafters to please him and do my best. He was an amazingly gifted teacher who truly loved his students and invested in them. God richly blessed those of us who sat under his direction. So very sad to hear of his passing. My prayers are with his family.
