We were all blessed when Diane brought Ted into the Gannon family. What a charmer. What a delight. We loved Ted's humor, spirit, and love for life. He made our times together all the more special. I hope he knew how much we loved him. We want to extend our deepest sympathy to Diane and Ted's family. May your many wonderful memories help to ease the pain.

Like many of the denizens who live or lived along Brooklyn’s 5th Avenue corridor stretching from Flatbush to Bay Ridge and beyond, we met Ted & Diane at Mary’s Bar...

Ted was always great for conversation and laughter and always so welcoming. A true “Admiral” of friendship. The wonderful thing about people like Ted (and those who know and love him ) is they are such an integral part of the life that creates the fabric of a community. This wonderful fabric of life that makes NYC neighborhoods so special and so endearing.

Ted may be gone in body but his spirit for living continues in the hearts of family and friends who are interwoven in Ted’s unique fabric of life. We celebrate Ted and a life well lived🎈Cheers🥂🍻❤️ Kat & Alain

Our sister Margery’s birth was very difficult. When a long yearned son arrived, our father Roy a presumptive Italian poet named him Theodore: gift of God
To our mother Jessie, family and friends he was Ted but to Roy he was Theodore.
Soon after I joined the family, neighborhood bullies and even his friends learned that picking on me you answered to Ted
I was welcomed back from the service to seasonal work at Ogden service center and into his home
Throughout my life thru my wedding, my daughters baptisms and weddings, our parents passing, Theodore has always been there, Roy named him well

Ted will be missed. I knew him for many years as a colleague and friend, but as our work assignments took us down different paths, I lost contact. Then, after retirement, I reconnected with him thanks to the AFIRE conferences. It was great to see that the passing years didn't change him. Same sense of humor, same smile. It breaks my heart to think he won't be with us at our next get together. God bless Ted's family. Sincere condolences for your loss.

My deepest condolences to Diane, Ted’s family and friends. Hold tight to memories for comfort and lean on friends and family for strength. I had the pleasure of meeting Ted at Mary’s bar in Brooklyn. It did not take long for Ted and Diane to become friends and very quickly family. Ted was a kind, generous, funny and welcoming gentleman. He offered his home so my son and daughter in law so they could have a baby shower. Who does that. Yes Ted. I was an out of towner (but a native Brooklyn Girl.) On all my trips to NY I looked forward to lunches, dinners and bar time with Ted and Diane. Spending time with Ted always uplifted my spirits. He had a beautiful soul and my life is richer for having known him. I was lucky for having met Ted at Mary’s and luckier to have become his friend. Someone as special as Ted will never be forgotten. He will remain in our hearts forever. It was and honor to know you Ted. You will be missed. Godspeed.

Ted was a gracious and graceful man who enjoyed life. I don't recall exactly when I met Ted but he was helpful and welcoming when I came to Brooklyn to work. It was always fun to catch up with him at the AFIRE conferences and we will miss his laugh coming from that back right corner of the conference room when AFIRE can meet again. Condolences to Ted's family and peace to Ted.

Thirty plus years ago I first worked with Ted in the midwest region and subsequently as a fellow executive in the North Atlantic Region. In an organization that valued conformity his insouciance and self-deprecating humor stood out and made him a joy to be around. RIP

Ted always had a ready smile and a quick wit. I enjoyed working with him in NAR and seeing him at AFIRE conferences. He will be missed. RIP.
