May 8, 1964-April 9, 2015. Teddy, lovingly known as "Farmer Ted", cherished son, brother, partner, uncle and friend extraordinaire, passed away with family by his side from complications due to Hodgkins lymphoma cancer. He will be remembered for his rich life and selfless love, caring and sharing to all who were blessed to have known him. Teddy was an avid sportsman and naturalist, the outdoors always calling him; happiest in the river, the fields, the garden and the kitchen - his passion for all will be sorely missed.
