Gardner E. "Ted" Prouty, III August 6, 1941- May 20, 2021 After a heroic battle with cancer, Ted died 5/20/2021. He is survived by his wife Lee Ziegler-Prouty, his beloved daughters Pamela J. Talley and Lisa H. Prouty of Fredericksburg, VA. and his grandson Justin E. Prouty. He is also survived by several cousins. He was known for his great low key sense of humor and his kindness to all. In 1990, he bought his 45 ketch, the White Eagle and went sailing. "Best year of my life," he said. Ted made many friends around the Chatham waterfront and could often be seen at the Chatham Lighthouse overlook with his morning coffee. A private family service will be held at a later date. In lieu of donations, our hero would enjoy having you toast him with a gin and tonic at cocktail time. For online condolences, please visit www.nickerson funerals.com
