He worked for himself for many years as a Master Plumber and Heating specialist, then later went to work for Ashley-Swift, J.H. Winslow, H.M. Tuttle, and N.E.

He put out planes that would crash land at the base as a firefighter. He was also stationed in Bermuda. Later on, during the late 50's and early 60's, he competed in and placed first to fourth in many motorcycle enduros, and took first place at a 250 mile AMA National event in Columbus, Ohio (The Little Burr Run), in 1960, in his division. He also raced in dirt track "scrambles" (today called motocross). Ted was also an avid turkey hunter. He leaves behind a brother, Harry and wife, Nancy, of Pownal, and a sister, Barbara of Bennington; three sons, Mark and wife, Debby, of New Hampshire, Kevin and wife, Susie, of Bennington, and Danny of Bennington; nine grandchildren, Nick, Laura, Tyler, Trever, Rachelle, Tiffany, Ted, Shawn, and Jeffrey; seven great-grandchildren, Wyatt, Rhyse, Brody, lan, Corbin, Bryson, and Genevieve, who will all miss him.
