    My condolences to the entire family. I was fortunate to have worked with Ted at 37th St & at the end of our careers at 101st, Every day was filled with laughs & we even managed to get some equipment repaired. I remember St Patty’s parades & fishing excursions on Lake Michigan. He’ll be missed


    My Condolences to the family. I haven’t seen the family in many years but often remember and speak about you. You were a great neighbor (69th) and friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
