You were always there for me, you never judged me, always there to let me know when I was wrong about something and guided me to the right way. I will forever hold our conversations in my heart and try to do the right thing. Life will never be the same without you, I will do my best to take of mom and will be there for Stephanie, Marie and Pam if they need us. I love you big brother, give Al a hug for me

Ted,
I'll never forget the first time I shot a gun, all of us boys were there on Grandpa's farm, and you were my teacher. I raised that shotgun, pulled the trigger, and fell right on my ass. You laughed and laughed.
Thanks buddy! Love you forever!

Our Lord welcomed a strong and loving saint into the presence of our Father in heaven. Teddy has always been an inspiration to me all my life. A great man of God to emulate and love. Teddy will always remain in my heart. God bless Barbara, Pam, Stephanie, Del, Evelyn, Katherine, Nathan, Marie, Jeff, Joe, Doris, Roger, Rose, Francis and Elizabeth. May God bring you all comfort.

I remember Ted from Jr High, and High School. He was kind, friendly, and a good guy. He still has that boyish face and grin. I am so sorry to hear of his loss, prayers to his family, and friends.

Our church (Christian Christian) have shared breakfast duties with Ballardsville Baptist for many years 1980- present and Ted was most faithful and truly caring in this labor of love . The clients knew that on the 4th & 5th Saturday’s they would be able to fill up on Ted’s gravy and biscuits along with all the other breakfast foods . Ted would also be sure someone had his recipe if he was on a mission trip .

Men like Ted are few and far between and may he Rest In Peace ..

He has big shoes to fill and will never be forgotten
Condolences to all his family
