I am very sorry for your loss. I knew Ted for a few years from St Ann's. He was extremely dedicated to the church and would help whenever asked without hesitation. He will be greatly missed. May his memory be eternal

I knew Ted for almost 40 years he was a very kind and giving person always thinking of others. He was a fellow brother in the St. Ann's Knights of Columbus and a friend in the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
