An accomplished painter, Ted was a longtime member of the Manotick Art Association. He and Marilyn loved to travel, and over the years saw much of the world together on road trips, cruises and safaris.

Since 2016, Ted lived at the VIVA Barrhaven retirement community enjoying the company of his many friends. The family thanks the kind staff of VIVA for their friendship and support.

He will be fondly remembered by all who knew him as a warm and kind gentleman with a sense of humour.
