Theodore John Ted Holom
1948 - 2014
Theodore John Ted Holom, formerly of Lake County, Ind., entered peacefully into Eternal Life with Our Lord on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, after a lengthy illness.
Born to Theodore and Elizabeth Holom on Sept. 18, 1948, Ted grew up in Griffith, Ind. He graduated from Purdue University in 1983 with a degree in Agronomy. Ted married the love of his life, Marjorie Sheets, Aug. 7, 1977. The couple moved to Burlington, Wis., where they would make their home for over 25 years. Ted was a Salesman for Harris Moran Seed Company and then Express Seed Company until his retirement in 2009.
Ted was a fisherman, hunter, sportsman, expert marksman, nature-enthusiast, animal lover (particularly his dog Angel), reader, movie buff, master Boggle game player, and above all a faithful Christian. He was a strong prayer partner for many.
Ted never met a stranger, and made friends wherever he went. Ted loved spending time outside enjoying nature, and taught his children to love the outdoors. Teds children remember him for his wisdom, humor and many lessons, including to treat all with kindness, and approach situations ethically and with humility.
Ted will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
Ted was predeceased by his father.
Ted is survived by his beloved wife, Marjorie; his much loved children, Katherine Holom of Denver, Colo., and Ted (Stacey) Holom of Mauston, Wis.; mother, Elizabeth Holom of Papillion, Neb.; and siblings, Diane (Douglas) Spaulding of Indianapolis, Ind., Deborah (Randall) James of Papillion, Neb., Maribeth (David) Santay of Toms River, N.J., and John Holom of Littleton, Colo.
