Theron "Ted" Edwards Obituary
Theron "Ted" Edwards, 78, of Spencer Idaho, passed away on July 30, 2015, with his loving wife at his side.
He was born at home on the family farm in Springfield, Idaho on April 4, 1937, to Theran T. Edwards and Vacello (Peggy) Koompin Edwards.
Ted attended St. Margaret's Boarding School in Blackfoot, Idaho and graduated from Aberdeen High School in 1955.
After graduation, he ventured to Alaska and worked several years before returning to Idaho and managing a cattle ranch in Challis. Ted eventually took over and purchased the family farm in Springfield. During this period, Ted also purchased the Springfield Market and operated it for several years until he purchased the Spencer Bar and Grill.
He sold the Spencer Bar and Grill and in 1995 he received a kidney transplant. He recently reached the 20-year anniversary of his transplant. He continued living and working in Spencer where he served as mayor and also as Clark County commissioner.
Ted had a love for horses and owned and raced thoroughbred and quarter horses for a number of years. He enjoyed every opportunity to fish, hunt, and experience new adventures. His recent adventures had become the desire to explore and travel the world, which had included travels to the Caribbean, Canada, South America, Mexico, China, Russia, the United Kingdom and European and Scandinavian countries. Ted's life was remarkable because he was extremely responsible but took life on the lighter side and was always ready to take on any occurrence life threw his way.
He is survived by his wife of over 25 years, Mary, of Spencer; children, Susan (Kent) Davies, of Atlanta, Georgia; Kyle (Sue) Edwards, of Blackfoot; Jackie (Rick) Shipley, of Blackfoot; six grandchildren, three stepgrandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, and his sister, Bette Lochridge, of Pocatello.
He was preceded in death by his beloved daughter, Tamme Petersen and his parents. 
A celebration of Ted's life will be held early this fall.
