Ted will be greatly missed. He was always cordial and conversational in his interactions with me. I enjoyed his smiles and laughter. He wanted to be ready when Jesus comes again and I believe his life was a testimony to the love and presence of God. May his legacy long live on in his family, friends and those who loved him!

If God had let me choose my Uncles I could not have made a better choice than my Uncle Ted. He was a great man for a young man to look up to. He, as all my uncles served in the military honorably. So very proud to have had him as my Uncle.

I will always miss your awesome story telling abilities. You were sure to include all the details. I loved eating your open faced cheese and brown sugar sandwiches with a diet coke. Love you Granddaddy.
