My heart is so sorry for the Gebhardt family. Ted was in my life for a short time and was the sweetest Man to me and Deann. He is irreplaceable.
It is hard to express the shock and sorrow I felt on recently learning of Ted's passing. So many great memories of good times in law school. I will never forget his kind heart, amusing antics, and generous spirit. It's impossible to imagine the world without "The Mighty Tedster." Fair winds, dear friend.
I am sad to hear of Ted's passing. As Tony commented, it was Ted who convinced me to date Tony. We had fabulous times while in law school. Our first year, Ted broke the tension before our first exam by standing in front of our class and hilariously imitating our professors. He always treated everyone with compassion and had the gift of making you laugh and feel good about yourself. Ted has a kind soul and I'm sure God welcomed him with open arms! Please accept my sincere condolences and know that we remembered him to our family at dinner tonight as well as praying for his soul and his entire family.
I am so, so sorry to hear of Ted's passing. He was a great man with a kind heart. We had so much fun in law school. He's the one who brought my wife and I together. I will miss his phone calls. He always had me in stiches.

Just recently heard of Ted's passing. We certainly are not supposed to bury our children. Please know that you are in my prayers - may God's love get you through this most difficult time. I will continue to pray for your entire family as you go through this grieving process. May fond memories eventually heal your heart. God bless!
I am very sorry to hear of Ted's passing. He was the funniest man I knew, yet he was balanced by great brilliance as well. I was fortunate to have met Ted at U of I and we had a great friendship. I missed seeing him after college but he always remained as one of my favorite people.
Thank you everyone for your condolences, Ted was a wonderful husband, father and friend to everyone. He truly had a heart of gold and was a wonderful provider for everyone he loved. All he ever wanted was to be loved and accepted for who he was. He is now at piece and with GOD and he will forever be in my heart.
So sorry to hear of Ted's passing, a wonderful sweet man we could always turn to for advise. We worked for him in Washburn/La Rose during his busy time of the pool season, he will be greatly missed, our thoughts and prayers are with all of his family at this sad time.
Carol, Brian, Eddy, Troy, Brock & Samantha. I am so sorry for your loss. Ted was an amazing brother-in-law. His humor always had everyone laughing & smiling. My fondest memory is of him singing to Carol & them dancing together like no one was watching. Such a soft-hearted soul. He will always be missed & forever in our hearts. I hope he is sitting by the ocean of his dreams . Rest in Peace. Our prayers are with you.
Carol, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Thinking of you during this difficult time. Sincerest condolences to you and your family.
I am so sorry to hear about Ted's passing, way too early. I went to Northmoor Grade School with Ted and saw him in high school a few time. He was one of the nicest guys I knew and everyone respected him. Outstanding guy and a huge loss.
Carol I am so sorry for your loss. I live in Florida in winter and just realized this was your husband. I remember seeing you and your telling me of the great guy you married. My prayers are with you.
Dick and Sandy, Rick, Randy and Jill. So sorry for the loss of Ted. Growing up in Peoria with the whole Gebhardt family brings the best of memories and adventures. We kept the neighborhood on its toes! Ted was always very kind to my brother Patrick, who was a special needs child. Ted's compassion carried him through this journey on Earth with greatness. Rest in peace my good friend. Tim Oneil, Arlington Heights, Illinois.

Every childhood memory - and a good many adult ones - include Ted. He was one of the funniest, smartest, and compassionate people I knew. He was a loyal friend. I will miss him. Mr. and Mrs. Gebhardt, please accept my condolences.
My heart is greatly saddened by your departure Ted. We were great buddies in High School(I.V.C.Class of '81). I will always remember our adventures in Journalism class. Our cartoon strips "Mandible Man" & "Jeffries & Gebhardt" in the IVsCene. It has been many years (33) since our partnership. I have wonderful memories of our friendship and will always remember how you signed my yearbook. "To Jerry, Good wishes even though you only want to be a welder" Ted. I am currently working as a welder in Chillicothe to this day. See you soon in eternity. Jerry Jeffries.
