Ted was born March 22, 1950 in Nampa, Idaho to Don Doramus and Francie Doramus Vance. He attended Nampa Schools for the first eight years. Later his family moved to Middleton. Ted graduated from Middleton High School in 1968 where he was State Wrestling Champion and played football.
In 1970, Ted married Janet Goslin. To this union there were three children, Tammy, Holli, and Jason. Ted and Janet were married for 32 years.
During his employment years, Ted worked different jobs. He became a licensed Journeyman Electrician. He and his family traveled all over the United States for his work. In 1997 while working in Alaska, Ted suffered a traumatic brain injury and was in a deep coma for 7 weeks. He was in Rehab Facilities for the following 2 ½ years and had to learn to live life all over again. His brain injury left him unable to work, so for the last 17 years he had a limited lifestyle. This did not stop Ted from doing some of the things that he loved. He loved fishing and the outdoors, bowling, and playing Pinochle with family. He also loved his trips to Jackpot and playing Bingo at the Senior Center on Fridays.
Ted never met a stranger and was always willing to give the shirt off his back. He had a smile on his face all of the time. He had the kindest, most generous heart. Ted was well loved and will be missed by all.
Ted was preceded in death by his father, Don Doramus; step-father, Ted Vance; and beautiful niece, Amy Jo Doramus.
Ted is survived by his children, Tammy (David) Horn, Holli (Paul) Libengood and Jason Doramus; his mother, Francie Vance; step-mother, JoAnn Doramus Alsager; brothers, Tony (Kathy), Tim (Lorraine), and Tom (Carole); sister, Trudy (Steve) Dewey; step-brothers, Glenn Vance, David Vance, Gary Vance,and Randall Holloway; step-sister, Michelle Yankovich; 5 grandchildren, Heather and Melanie Teasley, Levi and Alexis Libengood and Bradie Doramus; and many nieces, nephews and extended family who share many wonderful memories.
