Ted's Story

as told by his wife, Norma

 

Ted passed away on May 10, 2006. Our deepest sympathies to his family.

 

Ted was born in Colorado Nov 25,1936 where he was raised with three
brothers and two sisters. Ted has always loved to work and tinker on things
with motors. If it has a motor he can normally  get it to run. He worked for
the John Deere dealer for several years, in Holly Colorado. He was also a
truck driver.
  He was married in Holly in Nov of 1967 to Norma  and the summer of 1968
moved to Quincy,Washington where he has worked for Lamb Weston ( they make
french fries in the plant) as a diesel truck mechanic for over thirty years.
  He has 3 sons and 3 daughters. He has 3 granddaughters and 8 grandsons.
He also had two dogs, Peekaboo and Indigo.

  We thought all was going well and looking forward to his retirement and
doing some traveling. We took a trip to Ca. in the middle of March. Going down,
Ted found one knot on his lymph node and coming back, two more.  He went to
the doctor right away and within two weeks we found out Ted has terminal lung
cancer and has 9 months to maybe a year to live. He also has had two TIA's, not
sure of the medical terms but they are mini strokes.

 

So far Ted is still working because he really would not last if he had to stay home, that is all
he knows. He was looking forward to having a shop in our back yard and doing
what he loves to do.... work on cars, trucks and tractors. We haven't given up as
we do believe in miracles.


He loves being a mechanic. He loves old tractors
especially John Deere tractors, old cars and pickups and has an old pickup
to restore, His favorite animals are dogs.  His favorite colors are John Deere colors
and also blue. He loves watching old westerns, the history and discovery
channel.
