To Teds companion, family and friends I am so sorry for your loss. I am so sorry I didn’t know until yesterday.
Ted was a wonderful man and my boss for the many years we worked together at Danversport Yacht Club. He was sweet , kind and our joke for the lunch when we weren’t busy was him saying “ The buses will be coming down the hill any minute” .. I’m smiling now thinking of those times .. God Bless to the family , he will be missed.
Sincerely
Karen Long
