It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Ted, after a short illness. Much loved husband of June for 50 years and Dad to Scott.

He enjoyed fishing Harris Creek pool 11 and building computers. Ted was an avid Vancouver Canucks and BC Lions fan. Early in our life together he taught himself to play guitar, earning him the affectionate nickname “Twang” from his brothers in law.
