I have vivid memories of my cousin Ted at many Trainor and Donnelly family gatherings for Sunday and holiday dinners in the 50s. Ted had a healthy appetite. I always considered Ted, Dan, Jerry and Charlie as my big brothers. He was an impressive big guy, had to duck a little to get through the inner doors of the old tenement house on Grove St. He was very nice to his young cousins and I always heard great success stories about his many accomplishments from his proud mother, our aunt Kay. Few memories are: Ted taking us on tour of 'his' ship while in Newport, buying me a Yankee baseball uniform, and visiting us one summer in Portsmouth from Northeastern arriving on a motor bike. Aunt Kay was less than thrilled. All the best to all Ted's family.
i never met Ted except through the internet where we corresponded about matters of Military and National Security concerning our fading Republic. Ted was willing to share his experience and insight in areas where few had first-hand knowledge. I shall miss him as a friend and trusted colleague.
Even though I have not seen Ted in many years, I value the memories of him as a wonderful soft spoken gentleman. His many accomplishments have brought much pride to his loving family. His passing brings great sorrow to the Trainor family here in Massachusetts. May he rest in peace.
I have not seen my cousin in many, many years. I did babysit for his children when they lived in Raynham MA back in the 60's. May he rest in peace. Marybeth Flanagan Giovanoni
Linda, you are in our thoughts and prayers always, especially now during this difficult time. May God hold you a little closer to comfort you and give you strength. Ted was not only a great and accomplished man, he was one of the most loving men I've ever met. He will be missed but he is still loving and caring for you and his family in a much better place. We love you and we're here for you if you need or want anything. Linda and family
