    I met Doris and Ted in 1963, when my husband and I passed through Toronto and met with Dudley Barr, Doris and Ted. Ever since I consider both of them my dearest of friends. They both live by the Theosophical teachings and dedicated many hours every day to keep the light of the candle burning. I find myself very lucky to have known Ted for so many years and to have seen through his actions what a true Theosophist is. Total dedication and hardly a complain. You will be very much missed, and Doris, I feel your sorrow and the hole he heaves in your life. My sincere condolence.

    My wife Ruth and I lament the passing of Ted Davy who was warm-hearted, sincere, knowledgeable, scholarly, helpful, optimistic, and in all a gentleman. Alas, he was also “seldom seen” by us because he and Doris made Calgary their home and Ruth and I live in Toronto. Yet the Davys were always in our thoughts. Condolences to Doris and the many friends of the Davys.

    Ted’s life and work exemplified the ideal of Theosophy, an enthusiastic student of life ever open to new fields of thought, but always remaining loyal to the voice of his inner spiritual intuitions. He was a warm and compassionate friend. My kind and loving thoughts go to Doris and the family.

    Ted was a wonderful human being. I met him in the mid90s while researching an article about lesser-known spiritual groups in Calgary’s history. That article has yet to be written, but I ended up joining the Theosophical Society and becoming friends with Ted, his wife Doris, and many other interesting individuals. My condolences to Doris and Ted’s other family members, as well as to his other many friends. He will be greatly missed.

    It has been a privilege to know Ted Davies, and to have had the opportunity to hear him talk with delightful enthusiasm about his research and resulting thoughtful perspectives on Theosophical Topics. His dedicated theosophical life has benefited numerous fellow fellow students, and his life exemplifies a path to follow. Ted and Doris home has been a welcoming harbor and source of brotherhood for Theosophical friends. Doris, what a great contribution you and Ted team have made to humanity, may the warmth of 62 years shared together comfort you at this distressing time.

    We send our condolences to Doris and the Davy family. We were very fond of Ted and enjoyed spending time with him, sharing a cup of tea and listening to his Theosophical wisdom. He always had a twinkle in his eye and a kindness in his voice. His hope for humanity never faltered, and that gave him a place in our hearts. He will be missed. – Stephania and Russell Duffee

    I was saddened to learn of the passing of Ted Davy. My deepest sympathy to Doris, the Davy family and their friends. Ted was a dedicated Theosophist and over the years I was enriched by attending Theosophical meetings at the Davy home.

    I first met Ted in 1965 through his association with Red Cross Youth. He struck me then, and always later over the 50 plus years we knew each other, as a thoroughly decent, thoughtful and admirable human being. Among other things, we shared a love of English soccer, and even last year, were comparing the fortunes of our respective teams–Ted’s was Norwich, mine was Arsenal. I have just learned of his passing. I will never forget this unassuming and remarkable man. My sincere sympathy to his beloved Doris, who shared his life and his interests.

    Ted was a great man who inspired and guided me in my Theosophical studies since 1985. Although I moved from Calgary in 1996 I always felt I had a home and friends with the Davys when I returned. I felt he was a kindred spirit and I will truly miss him. Take care my friend.
