Not sure what to say?

I worked with Ted at Universal Orlando from 1999 to 2004, he was the kindest man that I ever met. When we connected on Facebook he told me that he had met the woman of his dreams and had been married for 5 years and that he had just been told that he had stage 4 cancer. Mrs. Breen, my heart goes out to you and the family....RIP my friend....you will be greatly missed...I just found out today....

Our hearts are broken and we wish we could be there with your family to celebrate Teds life. We love you so much. Our kids loved Uncle Teddy Bear. Always in our hearts, until we meet again❤❤

Love you and miss you


When Ted left us, a piece of my heart is forever broken. I will miss you dear friend forever. God and his Blessed Mother has welcome you to your forever home.

Sherry and I are so sorry that you have lost your kind and beloved son, Teddy. You stood beside me when my mother passed. I stand stand beside you today. Six decades of friendship with you makes a strong bond. May you remember only the fine times you had with Ted and the kindnesses he bestowed as the pain of today eventually passes.

Thoughts and prayers and deepest sympathy sent to the Breens,I am so sorry

Thank you for being what you always was a kind and gentle man

I knew Ted from long ago and am saddened to hear of his passing. We ran together with several friends in our late teens and early twenties. He was such a kind, generous person. Lots of good memories of him! He will be missed.
