He was always willing to lend a helping hand whenever he could. I, personally appreciate all the love he showed toward the youth and young adults. Rest well Ted, your living has not been in vain.

Ted and I worked together at Walashek. He was a God fearing man, with stearn soft voice and a great laugh. We shared similar experiences in life and it was always good for us to laugh about them. So today we rejoice because we know he is in heaven with our beloved father, and he will keep watch over us with each passing day.
