I am saddened to learn of Ted's passing. Ted and I met in 2010 and built a good friendship. I always enjoyed his sense of humor and we often shared funny stories or memories as they randomly popped into our head. He was a good man, a good friend and he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

We have such fond memories of raising our kids together on the same cul-de-sac. Ted was a wonderful father, neighbor and friend. We extend our sympathy and love to the entire family.

My heart goes out to my dear family who have lost such a caring and genuine man. Uncle Ted never hesitated to show his love and I remember feeling cherished by him which was so special as his niece. I am sure many others feel the same because of Ted’s heartfelt nature. I so wish we could be together as one big family again to celebrate Ted’s life. But in lieu of that, know my heart and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

Ted was a kind, loving, witty, humorous, and excellent human. He was always an attentive and caring uncle to me. I have fond memories of running with Uncle Ted and he was also the first and only person to teach me how to golf. We miss him. The last time I saw him, I told him we loved him and that he was important to us. My heart hurts for his children—my lovely cousins. There’s so much of Ted in their personalities and hearts—he lives on through them and the precious memories we share.

Ted was a very good man and was a part of our family for many years. He gave life to 3 fabulous children and he was very proud.
For Laurie, Teddy, Christian, and Elizabeth, the memories are so precious. Remember him as he was. I know I have pictures, but no access right now...it would be fun, to look at them of crab lake and family gatherings.
