Ted enjoyed sports, traveling, gardening and collecting Chinese art; holding offices on the International Chinese Snuff Bottle Society. He also was a proud member of Oasis and their men's group. Despite a long battle with Myelodysplastic Syndrome, his love for his family never diminished and he lived his life to the fullest until the end.
