Born near Jefferson City, Missouri, the family moved to the Kansas City area while he was enrolled in high school. He served in the United States Army in Korea between World War II and the Korean War. He met his compassionate and caring wife while working in the west bottoms for The Central Storage Company. He worked as a fine truck driver , a job he performed for 29 years, before the company closed its doors.
He highly valued and enjoyed worshiping with fellow believers. He worshiped as a member of Morse Covenant Church. He also enjoyed the fellowship spent with believers and family members while attending a few other churches throughout his life.
Teds life was greatly enhanced by the presence of billiard tables. Throughout life his heart raced for the opportunity to play an array of different games while in the company of fellow sharks. He regularly competed and participated in leagues while gathering at Shooters in Olathe. His eyes were focused on the techniques illustrated by professionals from all over the country that took place there. However, his favorite part in gathering was enjoying the friendships presented during the time spent contemplating the collisions of the balls on the table. He loved country music. He liked singing and listening to the music provided by friends at gatherings of the Kansas Old Time Fiddlers and Pickers.
Ted and Ede showered others with love. Prior to his passing , much love was returned as demonstrated by family, near neighbors, numerous friends and skilled professionals. All these kind acts made his time of passing much more tolerable. He would not have been satisfied spending all the words of an obituary on himself without recognizing those who cared for him during this testing time.
The family requests that those wishing to honor Ted remember the ministry of Morse Covenant Church, 15431 Quivira Road, Overland Park, Kansas 66221. A memorial service will be held there at a later date.
