I've known Ted since grade school in 6th grade where we attended George Meyers elementary school. I still remember when Ted came down with juvenile diabetes in junior high school. We were all worried about him when we heard he was in the hospital and had lost weight. I remember his mom having to prepare healthy food to help him control his blood sugar. I am also living with diabetes so I have personal experience what life is like living with a disease that can lessen the quality of life over time. My heart goes out to Kathy, Ted's children, grandkids, and all his extended family and friends. May God grant Ted eternal life. RIP my PHS classmate.

We were saddened to hear of Theodore's passing. I know his legal name was Ted but he was 'Theodore' to me. Having worked for, beside, and with Ted for 20+ years, he was more of a friend than a co-worker. We were lunch buds by day and often dinner couple(s) with Kat and Daci by night. I think Ted knew that he was influencing my son at the young age of 4-8 to build walls, repair anything, and analyze broken machines. What I am guessing Ted may not have known (10 years later), his patience and nurturing of Colten led to his degree in Mechatronics and a start of a career in "fixing" machines in a pharma factory. Ted was an ornery, burly "teddy" bear who (purposely) caused me problems most days we were together. I will cherish those days even more, now. RIP, Ted. Prayers for strength, comfort and peace, Kathy!

So sorry to hear of this news. Chad was like a second father to me for many years of my life. Not only that but I was also a carpenter and worked many hours with Ted both at the church and in many of his rental homes. I’ll never forget those evenings where it was just him and I working on a project and messing with each other. My favorite quote was “A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.” As many of you know he was in charge of the facilities and maintenance department at a pretty big church for many many years and as I even witness people would come to him with so many of their problems many of them could’ve been resolved weeks and weeks prior but they would come to him and say hey this needs to be done by tomorrow and that was his famous phrase but regardless of the fact that they were unprepared in many occasions He always stopped what he was doing and made their problem is. Which made his saying even funnier, because at the end of the day we all knew that other peoples problems were his emergency.

My heart goes out to each of you! Ted was one of a kind! Before I had been on staff with him very long, I was speaking of him to another staff member and called him Teddy. They asked me if he preferred to be called Teddy which was weird to me until they explained that's how I referred to him. I hadn't even realized I had taken to using the nickname, but it fit him so well and I never quit! Thank you for sharing Ted with us! We love and are praying for you!
Kevin Foster left a message on March 9, 2021:
He was a wonderful man. I sometimes think back to all the fun times we had back in the day. We haven’t seen each other in many years but I consider him a great friend. It those early years he taught me many thinks. I am sorry we live so far away, we would like to be there to help support you. I am sure Katie will be there Saturday and Steph and I will be thinking/praying for you.
Lisa Wotherspoon left a message on March 9, 2021:
I so remember fondly the summer I spent with you and Ted soon after you were married. You welcomed me with open arms, and helped me when I accidentally wore one of Ted's t shirts to bed that was covered with insulation fibers! I'll never forget that summer. God Bless you in this time of grief.
