I knew Ted briefly at Chapman and in the short time I knew him, I had the pleasure of experiencing his kind and genuine energy. I haven't seen him in years, but he's definitely in my thoughts and I wish all of my best to his family.

There are no words that can express the sorrow I feel over your loss of Teddy. (He will forever be Teddy to me!) Reading the tributes tells me that he will live on through all of the family and friends that he has touched with his infectious spirit. I am with you in thought and prayer and would do anything to help you through this time of sorrow.

Ted was only at Willamette for one year but I still feel touched by knowing him and being his neighbor. I wish I had kept more in touch with him after he left Willamette. I hope he knows just how much he is missed and the mark he left upon this world.

Teddy will be so missed. He was my 3rd grandson. He was bright, smart and so much fun. I have great memories. My heart goes out to Nancy and Tom. Love you Florence

Ted was a gem of a young man and Tom and Nancy are 'teriffic' parents!!!!!! If there is something positive to be learned from this tragedy I hope it opens all our eyes to be thankful for what we have, to be kind, understanding and civil to everyone and to simply do the right things at all times. My love and thoughts to Tom and Nancy in what is an unbelieveable time....I am here for both of you anytime and for anything!!! Your Good Friend, Tony

Ted was like a big brother to my son and will be deeply missed. My son first met Ted when he started at U.P. Ted was a true friend; always responsive and willing to listen. I met Ted when my son and I were in Portland last summer. Ted recommended a great quirky place to eat. Over lunch I expereinced many of the qualities that other people have described about Ted; he was charasmatic, fun, intelligent, articulate, generous, kind and

We all will miss you Ted. It helps to know the God awful pain your parents feel was shared by so many that attended your memorial service. You are in the heart of so many Ted. You are in God's hands now and will find peace in heaven.
