Our condolences to Tim and Sheila and family. May you feel Gods closeness and comfort as we all pray for you. May God heal the broken heart.
Ted was a people person, he always had a joke, a laugh and a smile for everyone. My earliest memories of him were standing at the front of the stage at the Findlay Xmas concerts telling the story of the old woman that swallowed a fly, standing behind the counter at the Findlay store or on the farm on the highway. A good friend to all of our family, a good neighbour and a great person to know. Ted will be missed by everyone who knew him.
Lillian, Tim, Les, Larry and Tina & families
