Dear Sandy,
I still remember the day we met you guys. Elaine had to stand on a cement block to see over the fence. She wasn't wearing her wig, so she put her hand on her head and said I don't usually look like this.
We had many fun times together, many laughs and much love. We started out as friends. Then good friends and for a long time now I have considered you family.
I have missed seeing you guys during this covid 19 pandemic. I will certainly miss Ted. I am looking forward to the chance to meet you for lunch and just talk. You and the family are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you all more than words can say. Love Jim

I was blessed to have Ted as part of our extended family all of my life. I have so many childhood memories with Ted, Sandy and the girls. The memory that stands out the most that still makes me laugh is Ted chasing us around with the vacuum, making loud noises, making us all laugh hysterically. He was such a fun loving, carefree man who no doubt had a heart of gold. He was like a second dad to Brad and me growing up.
I know Ted is with Jesus now and I look forward to another big hug upon entering Heaven’s gate. Much love to you, Sandy, Heidi and Stacey. I love you all.

What can I say? You guys became my Disney family. I will always remember Ted's laugh that day we spent at our cruise meet wine party. I know the memories we all share are just a small part of his wonderful life. Sandy, Heidi and Stacy just know he will live on in each of you and the grandkids as well. Our hearts might be hurting now, but his love will never leave and will continue to grow. I love you all.

Aunt Sandy, Heidi and Stacey,

Sending you hugs and all my love!
Beautiful pictures of such a fun, loving and beautiful family! Wishing you strength on the tough days and comfort for the quiet days. Uncle Ted was so kind, loving, and patient. I can only imagine the patience it took to teach us all to ski 😄 . I will always cherish my childhood memories with him and our family!

There are too many memories to choose just one. All those cruises, Ted our trusty pirate put up with 4 women The bushwhackers on St Thomas and even in Littleton while playing board games when it was 5 degrees out. Rolling in the surf of Magens Bay. You were our captain, our pirate.
And the time you thought of surprising us on a cruise. Little did you know we all found out about the “surprise” before the cruise but all acted surprised when we saw you. I wanted to tell you but Sandy wouldn’t let me.
Then the time that you offered to meet with Don in the mountains when the truck gave out. Don will be forever grateful.
You will be missed more than you will ever know Pirate Ted. You were the best person I’ve known. Love you sweet man.

Sandy and I remember with great fondness our Viking trip with Ted and Sandy. We enjoyed their company and I will never remember my afternoon with Ted sitting in a local brew pub watching the river sites while waiting for our Sandys.
Sandy we are sad to hear of Ted's passing and we wish God's peace and grace
Love
Len and Sandy Jacobs

Ted was a giant of a man in all ways. He was loving and kind and was always quick with a quip to inject humor into any situation. We had many joyous evenings in Cozumel full of laughter, good food, conversation and the occasional sing-a-long (videos to remain safely tucked away😉). Fun was a guarantee.
Ted was not only a great friend but was such an amazing father and grandfather and his marriage to Sandy was one for the ages. The rest of us can only hope to aspire to achieve that level of compatibility and commitment and utter devotion Ted and Sandy had. Our hearts, broken as they may be, are with Sandy, Heidi, Stacey and the rest of the family. We love you. ❤️💔

When I think of Ted, I always see him with a smile on his face. I had the pleasure of meeting him through Stacey and his grandkids, Tyler and Joey. I loved the way his face lit up around them and what a proud grandpa he was. To your entire family, you have all always made me feel so welcome. You are all so incredibly special to me. I hope you can feel my hugs and prayers. Love you! 💜
