I can still see Ted packing hose and jumping off the Fire Truck at Fireman tournaments each year. We had a lot of fun just practicing before the events. Then were all the Fire Meetings and the Legion Turkey shoots. Yes Ted was a good and loyal friend who served his Country and town of Dalton well. I am proud to have had him for a friend.

I worked for Ted at the Dalton bank and have appreciated everything he taught me. That education has proven extremely valuable throughout my life. My condolences to all Teds family.
