I am surprised that Wikipedia reports Garner Ted's date of death as 2003. I
thought he died decades earlier. Perhaps what happened decades earlier was
that Garner Ted was involved in some sort of scandal that was discovered by
his father, and that scandal led to his father's removing him from his
position with the church. I think there were allegations that Herbert was
jealous of the power that Garner Ted had gathered around himself and that
Herbert framed him so that he could remove him from the Church. I think
there can be no question that nobody could raise anywhere near as much money
for the Church as could Garner Ted.

September 15, 2003), American evangelist, was the son of Herbert W.
Armstrong. He developed his speaking style by copying the tones of
news broadcaster Paul Harvey.... In his programs he skillfully mixed
political, economic, and social news of the day with Bible-based

Somehow I remember that some UHF station in town, maybe Ch 38 or 56, used
to run his TV show. Never saw, but noticed in TV listings.
