Ted was one of the nicest, kindest and gentle man I have known. I taught with Ted for many years and we laughed together most every day along with his wife Maureen. A few days I guess we did not laugh but for most all the time the humor was everywhere. Ted was a gifted business man where he spent time working in Russia. He also enjoyed talking about his years playing baseball while in the Army.
But he loved teaching kids. One could not count the number of students he helped. I was always in awe of how many kids felt a special affection for him because he would almost always find a way to get through to students no matter how difficult it was.

Rest in Peace, my friend, and I know you are laughing and playing golf in paradise.
