To know Ted was to love him! He had such a pleasant manner that attracted people to him. Always polite and thoughtful, Ted coould also tell some of the best stories and have everyone on the edge of their seats! We loved him very much and we will miss him. It was an honor to know him.

My sympathy to all the family. Ted was a very special friend and co-worker for many years. After we all retired, Ted and I would talk a few times a year and catch up on everything and, of course, reminise about the good ole days at Woolworth and the many good times along with all the hard work. I thought a lot of Ted and will miss him and our semi annual phone calls.

My Dear Uncle Ted, we are going to miss your smile and your contagious laugh. Handsome and very proud I will always remember you as. I'm so glad you were a good brother to my mom. I love you Uncle Ted. Give mom and dad a big kiss and hug from me and tell them that I miss them very much.
