Very sorry to hear of Ted’s passing, and he will be missed. Ted was a great guy, full of classy wit and good humor. Always had a smile and something positive and funny to greet you with. One of the greatest generation.

Ted was a great “good morning” man I always saw on Sundays when I attended church at First United Methodist Church in Bellaire. Like Ted, I grew up in our church and recently returned to it when I moved back home to retire. I will miss seeing him, but know that he is with his wife in heaven smiling down on those of us who will carry on in his stead. Rest in peace, Ted. My prayers go out to your family and friends.
