Dear David, Evelyn and Elizabeth.

We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your Father. We cannot imagine how hard this time must be for all of you. Your dad was such a kind, fun and loving person and he will truly be missed. Please let us know if there is anything at all that we can do to help. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Dear David, Beth and Evelyn.
I am so sorry for your loss. I can understand what you are going though. He will be missed always. When your Dad and Mom first started dating in the late 1960’s your Dad use to take me skating quite often. I was just a young boy who was in love with playing hockey and your Dad went out of his way to help me hone my skating skills. I loved those times I shared with Ted. I thought he was so Cool, he always dressed so Smartly, he was such a great Skater and he had this touch of Elegance and Grace about him both on and off the ice. My thoughts are with you…..

Love Uncle Jimmy

Condolence from Paul and Brenda Johnson on April 8th, 2014 10:50 AM

Ted was a very dear friend. We spent many, many hours of conversation talking about every aspect of our collective lives but the topic that continually reoccurred and the one he enjoyed talking about was that of his children and grandchildren……..my my he loved you all so very much, and was so proud of all your accomplishments …….
In 2001 I asked Ted to help build a company……he did without hesitation, and with as much enthusiasm as when he coached soccer. He was dedicated, conscientious, and a great mentor to the younger employees at ENX Inc.
Brenda and I will miss him. I will miss our daily calls and even though neither one of us could golf worth a damn, I will miss seeing him flub another shot…. curse and then smile!
I have to believe that Ted is in a better place and is lovingly watching over us…….
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of grief
With Love and Sorrow
Paul and Brenda Johnson

Our deepest condolences for your loss; We have nothing but good memories of Ted and feel fortunate to have known him. He will certainly live on in the hearts of the many who loved him.

Condolence from Uncle Robert and Aunt Carol on April 12th, 2014 11:25 AM

To David, Elizabeth and Evelyn,

We were very sorry to learn of your father’s illness and passing.

I have known “Ted” since when he and my sister, Cathy, were dating in Vancouver over 45 years ago.

I always considered Ted more of a friend than just a brother-in-law and although we did occasionally but not often see much of each other after he and Cathy separated we remained friends.

I would consider Ted very fortunate indeed for receiving the unwavering and loving support of all three of his children not just over the past nine to ten months but over the past nineteen years.

He will be missed by us also.


Uncle Robert and Aunt Carol
