Favorite times were those spent with family and friends, having cookouts along the Millstone River in New Jersey, at their farm in Pennsylvania, and the lake house in Maine. Ted loved his country and was honored to serve and support it throughout his life.
He loved making new friends and was genuinely interested in everyone he came across. He was a kind and generous man and put a smile on everyone’s face.
