When Ted was young, he loved exploring the Straight of Georgia on his boat with his family and friends. He once ventured as far as Alaska on his 22′ Sangster. To finance all of his adventures, he worked at the Campbell River Pulp mill.
Ted’s last years were joyful and carefree with Carole. They loved to travel and play cards. Every morning they would play crib and the loser had to make breakfast.
In lieu of flowers, take someone you love, someplace nice, and create a beautiful memory.
A service will be held at the Eagles Hall at 1999 14 Ave, Campbell River on Saturday October 22 2022 from 1 pm – 3 pm. Please join us to celebrate Ted.
