Sorry to hear of your families loss, and the loss of a neighbor and classmate from many years ago. I'm sure that he'll find his place in heaven after years of suffering here on earth.

Worked with Ted at the post office. He was a kind man with a good sense of humor (which was needed where we worked). May he rest in peace.

Joyce, Once again so sorry for your loss. I remember your brother as being very quiet and I remember his car. Prayers for you and your family!

I am sorry to have lost a life long friend. Ted and I started in the first grade together, attended ST. Francis de Sales HS together, and he was in my wedding. I didn't have a car, so he drove Judy and me on our first date as our "chauffeur". Over the years, we've drifted apart a little, but still met from time to time for lunch at Loma Linda's Restaurant. Ted has been generous in donating to our Class of 1960 St. Francis Scholarship Fund and as soon as more details are forthcoming regarding the funeral arrangements, I will send them out to all the remaining classmates of SFS 1960.
