He grew up and attended school in Spokane, WA where he met his wife of 68 years, Naida Lambert. They had four children, Merrilie Davidson, Annette Williams, Dan Nevdahl, and Marty Nevdahl. He was one of six children, Muriel Erickson, Helena Tomlinson, Doris Davies, June Palmer and Harold Nevdahl, all deceased. He was preceded in death by his grandson, Ian Williams. He is survived by his wife; four children, six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren and his many nieces andnephews who loved and adored him as well as his brother-in-law, Leonard Davies. He spent his last days surrounded by his wife and family at home in Bishop Place Assisted Living. Ted loved his wife with all his heart and soul and would awake each morning with a "Hello, pretty lady." They spent most of their married life in Spokane until moving to Pullman eight years ago, to be near their daughters. They attended Our Savior's Lutheran Church where Dad sang in the choir and at many weddings and funerals. He was a member of the A Capella Choir and the Spokane Melody Singers. He loved Christmas and would spend hours or days looking for the perfect tree and then bring it home and rebuild it. We would all decorate it under his watchful eye and he would redo it after we went to bed. Ted was a veteran of WWII. He was part of the Army Air Corps and stationed in England. He was an engineer, working on B17s as well as co-piloting them. He always had a love affair with that plane. He didn't meet his baby daughter until she was three years old. Ted was such a loving uncle. He played and joked with all of his nieces andnephews who called him Uncle Uffie. We vacationed together, spent holidays together and had trips to lakes and parks throughout our summers. Dad was a "Jack of all Trades." He could fix anything and was called upon to repair all appliances and anything with a motor. He made our toys, bikes andplayground equipment. We had skateboards and stilts, teeter totters and swings. He always had the parts because he threw nothing away. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren adored him. They spent so much time with Grandma and Grandpa. He could make any child laugh. He loved to hold them and most of the time they fell asleep together in his chair. We willalways remember his smile, his laugh, his humor, his jokes, his beautiful voice, and his love. The family would like to thank the staff of PullmanRegional Hospital and Bishop Place for their care and compassion. We would like to thank our cousin Les Davies and his family for all they have done for us during this time.
