|Let the memory of Our Dad, Uncle Ted, Grampa Ted and Ted, be with us forever|
"Thinking of you Dad."
"Remembering you Dad on your Birthday. Miss you every day."
"Ted and his wife Bea were our neighbors on Hummock Pond Road for nearly 20 years. We had many chats about gardening and kids. They were the BEST NEIGHBORS EVER!
They will both always hold a special place in our hearts.
Holly, Marty, Charley, Lucy and Jack"
"I have just read of the passing of Ted and pass on my deepest sympathy. Ted and I were stationed at the loran station at Low Beach in 1948 and occasionally double-dated. My wife of 64 years, Betty Oliver and Bea were very good friends. We obviously chose well! Again, well remembered. Bill and Betty Goetz"
"I learned to plumb, wire and repair all kinds of things from my father. I was lucky to have access to his workshop and tools from a young age. He was a patient teacher and good to his family."
"I knew Ted from when he went commercial scalloping years ago. I am a commercial bay scalloper on Nantucket. I was always intrigued by his scallop boat. He had one of a very few inboard boats in the fleet. Sometimes I would chat with Ted on the dock about his boat and how he ran her. He told me that on very calm days he would have to keep her in gear a little to keep the dredge ropes from going under the boat and fouling the prop. One day I was walking around where he kept his boat near the Angler's Club and noticed it was half sunk. I called Ted right away and told him. He came down to the sinking boat quickly and saved her from sinking entirely. Most of the inboard engine was underwater. I thought it was the end of scalloping for Ted. He didn't seem worried at all. He told me he would take certain parts off the engine, bring them home, put them in his oven to dry them out. He had the boat up and running in no time and back out scalloping. It was always a pleasure to talk with Ted. He was a good man. He and his scallop boat will be missed around the waterfront."
"My favorite Uncle "Ted" aka "Mr. Fixit" I had so many fun times visiting in Reading as a child and later the many times at Hummock Pond Rd. as a visit with Bea was always special. I was always fasinated by the engineer in Uncle Ted and how much fun it must have been for the boys having him as their teacher, dad, mentor. Slide show in August was truly the best."
We will keep you in our hearts forever."
