After retiring and returning home, during the Cold War he pursued his earlier passion as an Architectural Designer. While working with Big D Metal Works he was honored to create the Dallas Police Memorial. He retired a second time from Big D and enjoyed his time with Susan and his family. Ted had the greatest ability to overcome and accomplish anything and his dry sense of humor endeared him to everyone he met. Most of all he truly is a loved and respected husband, father, brother, and a friend. Ted is preceded in death by his two sisters Sharon and Diane. He is survived by his loving and caring wife Susan, son Corey and daughter Missy, brother David and sister-in-law Donna, 5 grand children, and many nieces and nephews.
