Ted Carney

Visalia - Ted (Theodore Roosevelt) Carney joined his mother Peggy, father Ted and his sisters Pam and Sharon in heaven on July 3, 2018. Ted was born December 5, 1951 in McAllen, Texas. Ted leaves behind his wife Ramona Carney, two step sons Ryan Brown Tulare, Michael Brown Visalia, four grandchildren, two brothers William (Bill) Carney Prescott Valley Arizona, Matt Carney Diamond Springs and many close friends.

Ted spent many of his childhood years growing up in Ponca City, Oklahoma where he was known to pester his four younger siblings to no end. Ted's father was a great salesman, which rubbed off on Ted. Ted's mother always had a garden growing in the yard, canning and freezing whatever it produced. Ted developed a passion for gardening, and had a garden at home and at work for his fellow employees to enjoy.

Ted graduated from Ponca City High school in 1970. Ted was avid in football, playing defense throughout high school. Ted continued to play football at college (Northeastern Oklahoma ) where he received a football scholarship. Ted graduated from the University of Central Arkansas on August 6, 1976 with a Bachelor' degree.

In 1980 Ted moved to Visalia working various jobs turning his love for sports and competition to golf. In 1983 Ted was honored to play with Gary Player in a ProAm golf tournament. Ted holds several golf course records and while trying out for the Phoenix Open he missed the cut by one stroke. Ted went on to play in other tournaments including the US Open. That was the last time Ted played golf returning home to work and never looked back.

Ted was always looking for a better way to do business and did so in 2010 taking the packaging industry to a new level world wide with his invention of the Rapid Bander stretch film by putting together a wide web stretch roll with bands (two rolls on the same carriage) to get a roping/banding effect that enhanced the strength of the film. Prior to that Ted invented the Rapid Roper by splitting stretch film on the same core to be used as a double roping device. Ted made it possible for his customers to use less stretch film to secure their product for a sturdier pallet.

Ted will be remembered as a motivator, innovator, visionary and friend to his customers, friends and co-workers. Ted's family will remember him as a hard worker and good man with some feistiness,

Into GOD's hands do we send his spirit.
