A loving and gentle person who loved his family, serving his clients talking about the Civil War, the old College crowd and never had a negative word to say. My childhood protector and dear cousin. You are at peace


Sooooo very sorry to her of Ted's passing. He was a wonderful person, happy and easy going, always concerned about his clients and often helped them without pay. In his final days, he did what he loved best and dutifully watched the Cubs, Bears and Bulls games which seemed to be a very happy time for him. His family and friends will be in my thoughts and prays for healing and comfort. He will be missed by many.

Ted had a big heart. I am reminded of his generosity and compassion, which was ever present.
I am blessed to have shared ups, downs and life experiences with him.
Thank you for being in not only my life but my familyâ??s life.
May his soul be eternal.
I will never forget you.
