Theodore Roosevelt (Ted) Rymal, Jr. passed away on Friday, July 19, 2013 at his home in Port Charlotte, FL. He was born October 28, 1937 in Refugio, TX to Theodore R. and Doris Rauscheck Rymal. He was proceeded in death by his parents, sister and brother in law, Arleene and Dr. Harold Springfield, and his step-daughter Alisha Dunn.

Ted is survived by his wife, Sandi Nagel Rymal and her sons, Jonathon Mims and Drew Nagel (Amy), and his loving children; son, T.R. "Rudy" Rymal, III (Kelly Conroe), and daughters, Pam Rymal McGuire (James Baxley) and Kim Rymal Mitchell (Roger). Also surviving are fifteen grandchildren; Alisa McGuire Herridge (Brad), Staci McGuire Harris (J.R.), Daniel Baxley, Blair Baxley, Keith Rymal (Gina), Shae Rymal, Ryan Rymal (Amber), Robert Meredith (Erin), Stephen Meredith (Heaven), Jacob Mitchell, Aiden Nagel, Wade Mims, Tyler Mims, Seaira Mims and Alyiah Dunn. He is survived by an additional fifteen great-grandchildren, brother in law, Jay Mitchell and numerous other dear friends and family members.

Ted proudly served his country in the US Navy during the Cold War from 1955 - 1958. He went on to be an entrepreneur, business owner, land developer, inventor, tugboat Captain and mariner. His sails took him to many destinations, some of which were the Florida Keys, Panama, and Belize. He held many patents and he never stopped thinking of new ideas. Ted loved to entertain friends and family, who always enjoyed the tales of his many great adventures. He will be sorely missed by his loved ones who will be anxious to see him again in Heaven, where he has blue skies and smooth sailing once again.

Ted will be buried with honor by the US Navy from the USS Roosevelt, in the sea that he so loved.

The family will host a remembrance celebration for "Captain Ted" in Montgomery, Texas at a later date. The family suggests that memorial donations be made to Tidewell Hospice, 1158 Veronica St., Port Charlotte, FL 33952.
