He served our country proudly from 1966 to 1972. He served 3 tours in Vietnam. Ted was an honorary servant dedicating his time for others. He eventually settled in Spokane. Ted married Kathy on July 11, 1986. He worked for Perfection Tires, Costco, and ended his work days at Paradies Lagadere. He made many friends along his journey. Ted enjoyed fishing, playing pool, and sharing a cold beer amongst friends. He enjoyed teasing, if only because he enjoyed to be teased back. Ted will be remembered for his wit, his willingness to help others, and for making people smile. He was loved by many and will be missed greatly.
