Well I have many fun fond memories with Ted. He was a fun and caring man. Many fun boating trips. He also loved a Party at home. I met him at the NY Bar and Grille sitting at front door smoking his pipe...what a story teller he was. There was a time when he needed help driving and I helped him when I could he gave me shelter when I needed it and in Turn I helped him taking him to the store . Ted I'm sure you have met my daughter Kristen she will make you laugh ...may you keep the stories going in heaven and also be with your wife. Pat 🙏❤️
