Ted loved people. Knowing Ted was having a friend for life. He’d drop anything to help out in any way he could. Some might call him a handy man or a jack of all trades, but he truly just enjoyed being with neighbors, friends, and family. Ted was known as a kind, generous, and faithful person. He enjoyed fishing, cheering on his favorite sports team, the Cardinals, dancing, and talking politics. Ted’s presence will be missed greatly.
