My sympathy to Ted's family. He was part of my life, from childhood to adulthood. I am so glad that so much of his artwork is in homes of people who knew and loved him.

We extend our sympathy to all Ted's family. It has been a pleasure and privilege to have Ted as a dear friend for over 40 years. We have many memories of Ted in Patrol HQ doing drawings while waiting for a call and skiing the trees and powder. Also a trip to Swedish ER after Ted had fallen from his horse and the incredulous nurse recording his rodeo injuries which Ted listed in his slow, quiet way.
