“When we leave this world all we leave is our memory and I hope and I pray that somewhere down the line God has allowed me to touch somebody else in a positive way,” said Ted Bearden, owner of Bearden Funeral Home, after he was awarded the 2017 Don Gordon Business Leader of the Year Award. Bearden received a standing ovation as he walked up to the stage to accept the prestigious award at the 21st annual Dawson County Chamber of Commerce Gala March 3. “For over four decades, Ted has served as the calm in the storm in the time of a loved one’s death, ensuring that every family is given the dignity, respect and compassion they deserve,” said Chamber of Commerce President Christie Haynes. The Don Gordon Business Leader of the Year award began 17 years ago and recognizes leaders who are not only successful in their business but also genuinely care about helping the community.
