My absolute favorite cousin in the world..Family meant everything to him even as a kid. I remember him trying to get home from Viet nam when his dad passed. Naomi was the love of his life, and those kids and grandkids. Thank you God for blessing us to have him in our world.I

Love always,

Teddy and Naomi--we never think of one without thinking of the other. Teddy was always so kind and cheerful to us and to all who knew him. He was the epitome of what a man should be -- a good husband, father and grandfather. He exemplified the life and ways of a good Christian man. His warm smile will be greatly missed but his legacy will live forever. We will miss you.

I will always hold a dear and special place in my heart for Mr. Akrie as he was a very positive and most influencial person in my life. He taught me what I need to look for in a potential mate. He was a dedicated husband, father, grandparent, and an unconditional friend. He exemplified how a husband is supposed to treat his wife and what a spiritual head of the household is supposed to be. Thank you Mr. Teddy for all that you did for me as a young child and also as I matured into the person whom I am today. Rest in peace and know that our paths will meet again.

To the Akrie family, our prayers and thoughts are with you in your time of sorrow! Pop Teddy will live for ever in our hearts and minds.

Ted and Naomi would come to Church and I remember standing beside Ted and I harmonizing as we would sing the Praise songs. Even though he had partial hearing loss he would carry a tune with each song. I met Ted through his son, Darren and got to know him better through Darren's stories about him. When Ted and Naomi would be a church with their oldest granddaughter Ted seemed Like his smile was a little bit brighter and his steps were a little bit livelier and he'd say how much he loved his grandkids and that he was Blessed to see them as they were growing up.

I'd like to thank Ted for his service to our Country in his military duty. I'd often see Ted sporting a "Retired Veteran" cap He was truly proud of his service and truly proud of our Country.

It was always good to see Ted and see him smile or laugh. Naomi would sometimes offer "motherly" advice to me and I'd feigned ignorance about her advice; with a sly smile I'd look over at Ted and he'd be laughing at the banter between Naomi and me.

He truly loved Naomi and I'm sure as in all marriages there were some rough times through their history together through the military, moving working life and retirement. Their Love and companionship was never ending. In my mind their Love is a striving example for Pam and I to achieve in our Love and marriage.

Pam and I are better people and by knowing Ted and Naomi. He is missed and we can't wait to see him again in Heaven. Ted's light will live along in his children and grandchildren and future generations. Ted's light will live in me.

Ted Akrie: what a wonderful friend and neighbor. Last winter, he helped another much younger neighbor push his work truck out of a snow drift at 5:30 in the morning. It was just the kind of man he was.

In early spring, he bought and brought to me a small gift. It was so thoughtful and unnecessary that I have always cherished his caring -- even when he was not well himself. I'm so glad he and I got to watch a Bronco game together on TV this year -- even though he'd have rather watched the Steelers!

Linda and I have been so blessed to know Ted and Naomi and be able to call each other "friend."
