Age 89, of Eagan With great sadness we announce the passing of Ted, who in many years, faced many health challenges with dignity, grace, courage and most of all his faith. He leaves behind his beloved wife Anne, loving daughter Pam (Don) Hoppe of Parkers Prairie, sister Christine Englert of Farmington, many nieces and nephews, special cousins whom he lunched with at the Cracker Barrel the first Thursday of every month, and his special pets Cavalier King Charles Spaniels "Tucker and "Miss Honey", Cat "Mouse", and parrot "Turkey". In death and in life his thoughtful and generous spirit will continue to live on as Ted donated his body to the University of Minnesota Anatomy Bequest program to further the research and education of young Doctors. His love of people and conversation touched everyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with him. He never went anywhere without making a new friend. There will never be a day when he will not be missed and he will live on in the many hearts he touched. A sincere thanks goes out to the Allina Hospice Blue team especially Jerry and Nathan for all the help they gave Ted his last four months, especially his last five days. Even the telephone nurses who helped me all hours of the night to keep him comfortable they truly were all angels. To All, I cannot thank you enough. A celebration of Ted's life will be Saturday April 13th at: Christ Lutheran Church, 1930 Diffley Road, Eagan, MN. We welcome family and friends to join us at 11:00 with service at 12:00. NO flowers please - memorials only.
