My partner Ted was so multi-faceted in interests and skills that I did not include them all when I wrote his memorial. I should have mentioned he loved animals, especially cats, and we had four of them who each lived a full long life with us, over our 36 years together. He was extremely modest, and said of our 27 years together in our own Multimedia firm, that, simply, "I am Words and John is Pictures." He was an avid SF Giants fan, ecstatically celebrating their World Series Victories. He was an amazing supporter of the long distance charity bicycle rides I did over six years and hosted training ride events in our home in Bodega Bay. In the later years, we traveled to Alaska and Hawaii, as well as Paris, Barcelona, Lisbon, Florence, and the island of Funchal Portugal on a transatlantic cruise. We had a full and exciting life together. I miss him deeply.

I remember Ted from long ago. He was my brother Bob Shanahan's best friend in high school and further until they lost touch. When I saw that he was into building dark rooms it brought back the time that he and my brother built one in the basement of our family home. My brother was into photography and we all, including other friends, had a great time working on developing the pictures he took. Ted was a great guy and friend and he will always be remembered with fond memories of times gone past. My wish is that he has met up to discuss old times with my brother who passed away 3 years ago. It was so nice to read of his accomplishments and what a wonderful life he led. My condolences to all who were touched by his love and life.

The world is a little less bright with Uncle Ted gone, but you are forever in our hearts.

I was always happy to visit with Ted. He was interested in many topics and had much to add to a conversation. I will miss seeing him with John.
