Words can not describe how much fun I had with my uncle. Living with him in Fairfield, CA for 9 months in the late '70's was a blast!! Ted was the person who taught me to drive a stick shift vehicle. Uncle was also the person who fueled my love of motorcycles. When I lived with him we would go out riding every single night after he got off work. He introduced me to a bunch of great riding friends and my love for bikes too off!! He was a giving man, he gave me his old motorcycle when he bought a new one. Yes.... he GAVE me a motorcycle. RIP Unc. I'm happy you are a peace. ❤️
Ted was a good man and I am happy to say he was a friend of mine. I often think of Ted and all that he helped me with and taught me. He will be missed. Mike Weig

We are so sorry for the loss of this wonderful man. He was always willing to go above and beyond to help out wherever he could. It was a joy spending time with both Ted and Betty. He will be greatly missed by so many friends and family.
Still in total shock. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Betty. Truly wish I can be there. I will wear blue on Friday in remembrance of Ted. Love you, Brian and Donna Lapczynski
He was an awesome man and I am happy I got to know him a little better when he and Betty visited us several times in Montana. John knew Ted and Betty quite a bit longer when we lived in Piedmont. We all talked about the loss of his daughter and our loss of Cody and we took comfort in our memories. We are sorry to Betty and all of the family for your great loss and wish we could be the on Friday. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Julie & John
Our thoughts and prayers are there with all of you ! Sorry we were not able to make it out there! Love, Carol and Jack

Betty and family My deepest condolences on your loss Ted was always a wonderful friend and client. He will be so missed with that wonderful sense of humor he had. He had so many great stories and I know his family will miss him. Although I hadn't seen you guys since you moved I've often thought about you.
Ted was a loving man that loved Betty with all his heart. He will be greatly missed! Betty you are in my prayers and now you have another Abel to watch over you.
Uncle Ted was a amazing person! He will definitely be missed. I would love when him and aunt Betty would come to Rapid and visit for any reason. If I ever needed help with anything he would be my go to person about everything! I loved when being able to go see him down in New Mexico he would do everything he could to make sure we comfortable in his home. Would take us show us all the different places and fun things to do! He is definitely going to be missed! He was a great uncle!
You had a heart of gold always willing to help anyone and everyone. You will be forever missed.
Ted was one of the kindest people I have known. When we worked together and I was pretty much alone having moved here from Kansas. He knew one day I was making a trip home and was scared of the winter roads. He told me that if I had any problems to be sure to call him no matter how far it was from here. Not many people would be so kind and it made the trip much less scarier to make. So sorry to hear of his passing, the world has alittle less kindness in it now.
