So sorry to learn of the death of a distant (second?) cousin - his great grandfather (John W Alway) and my great grandmother (Martha Winbow Always) were brother and sister of eight children (back in the UK). I spoke only briefly to Ted just after I had 'tracked down' his part of the family and he seemed as pleased and interested to hear from me as I was to speak to him. So sorry to learn belatedly of his passing and my sincere condolences to his family.

Our condolences to all, We remember Ted's visit to Prince Albert back in the 90's.We shared some good scotch & lots of stories. We always appreciated that Ted came all the way west to visit us and Aunt Lucille. It showed the kind of family man he was. We pray that your joyous memories of all the good times you shared will sustain you through this trying time. Love to all!!

Dear Linda and family. Words can't express the sadness we feel for your profound loss of such a wonderful man. Brad had such a lovely visit with Ted at Henk's birthday party. Ted was always genuinely friendly with such a wonderful smile. Hugs, Brad and Pat

Remembering the great ski outings with Ted and Butch. Joe and I could count on waking up to the smell of Ted cooking bacon every morning. He was always up at the crack of dawn working in the kitchen. Will miss his smiling face and light banter.

So very sorry for your loss, our Deepest Sympathy to the family. We knew Ted as our neighbor who loved "fried green tomatoes" I will always remember meeting Ted for the first. I was digging a garden in the backyard (having just moved in) and Ted arrived home (unnoticed by me) and peered over the fence and said "Hello neighbor". Well it scared the you know what out of me, we both laughed and made our introductions. Rest in peace Ted.

Words cannot not express our sadness for your family. Linda, we had only met Ted a couple of times at the park and we were invited with open arms to your yearly fish fry. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to get to know him better. Every time we met him he always had a bright and sunny smile and I am sure he will be deeply missed by all of his friends and family.
Condolences will be posted once approved by our staff.
