Ted worked for the Department of Motor Vehicles in Pittsburg, Stockton and Sacramento. After his retirement, he began his second and most fulfilling career of selfless service becoming a CNA caregiver to many patients over the last twelve years. Ted loved helping family members as well as strangers, in every way that he could, anytime of the day or night, you call him and he would be there. He also loved animals very much including his two dogs Teddrick and Simba. He lived a colorful and amazing journey here on earth and all of us that were fortunate enough to have Teddy touch our lives will miss him greatly. Ted's Dad Edward, Uncle Lum and daughter Aurora precede him in death. Ted's last gift of love was to donate his body to science. A celebration of Ted's life will be held Saturday March 10th. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Nathan Adelson Hospice, 4141 Swenson Street, Las Vegas, NV 89119
