Theodore "Ted" G. Conklin

October 13, 1949September 30, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Theodore G. “Ted” Conklin on September 30, 2020 at his home in Stagecoach, Nevada after a brief battle with cancer.

Ted was born on October 13, 1949 in Antioch, California the son of George and Alice Conklin. He was a graduate of Yuba City High School, Marysville California and Yuba Community College where he majored in police science. He served in the USAF and was honorably discharged in 1969. He served with the Yuba City, California Police Department from 1971 – 1993, where he started as a Police Cadet and rose to the rank of Sergeant before his retirement. Additionally, he served as a Sacramento County Sheriff’s court security assigned to the Sacramento County Courthouse until his final retirement in 2011. Ted was a true Law Enforcement professional and was highly respected by his co-workers and supervisors.

Ted married the love of his life Dianne in 2003 and they moved from Modesto, California to Stagecoach, Nevada where they spent many happy days enjoying hiking, shooting, boating, and raising pure-bred Doberman Pinschers. Ted loved the outdoors and especially loved boating and hiking the areas around Lake Tahoe. Ted was Mr. Fix it, always making home improvements and even trying his hand at building sheds and patio covers. Ted was also fabulous chef, trying recipes that inspired him from food channels. You couldn’t have asked for a better friend, husband, lover, soul mate. I love you Ted.

Ted was a devoted husband, father and is survived by his wife Dianne, his stepson Joaquin Williams; his previous wife Linda Brebac and their son Michael; daughter in-law Jennifer, and grandson Elijah. He has joined his father (George), mother (Alice), and his 3 sisters in heaven.

Ted was a positive influence on all those whom he met. He touched many lives and made a difference in the world during his time on this Earth. He will be greatly missed.

A “Celebration of Life” will be held at a time and place to be announced.

Dear Old Dad,

Words cannot say how much I miss you, or how much you mean to me. You are the best man I've ever known; you are and always have been my hero. I have learned so much from you over the years (even when it seemed like I wasn't paying attention): how to work hard, how to provide for a family, how to put your life on the line to serve others, how to stand up for what's right no matter what the cost, how to take pride in what you do and in what you make and in who you are, how to truly love the people around you and be kind to everyone you meet, and now how to keep fighting when all seems lost and to face death with courage.

I sure wish we had gotten to spend more time with you, and especially that Elijah could have had more adventures with Grampa Conklin, but I will always be grateful for these last ten years. You got to know your daughter-in-law and your grandson, and they both loved you with all their hearts and looked up to you; I think they always will. I know I always will!

Dianne, Dad loved you so much and he wouldn't have had those last ten years without you. Thank you for all you did for him over the years, and for loving him and us so much. We love you and are praying for you!

Jerry, I am so glad that you got to be with Dad at the end of his life on Earth. He treasured you and your friendship, and he appreciated all your help and care so much, especially at the end.

Still Trying to Fill Your Shoes,
Sunny Boy

Ted and I met 35 years ago on a beach in Lake Tahoe Nevada, when I lived in Carson City and worked for the airline's.

Ted truly was the best friend anyone could ever have, and our friendship envolved over time. We shared times at Tahoe together, going shooting and family BBQs as well. When Ted worked for Yuba City PD, I had the honour to go on a police ride-along with him. He was such a gentleman and he treated people right , something that's always stuck with me. Many years I moved away from Nevada but we always stayed in touch as friends, I feel blessed to have known Ted all these years, even though the miles separated us. I miss you very much my friend but someday we will meet again. Always rest in peace my friend My "Blue Angel" . You are gone way too soon from this Earth and from us but you'll always be in our hearts and spirits, and in the Lord's House forever.
