Ted was born September 14, 1956 in Columbia, South Carolina to the late Theodore N. Maass, Sr. and Caroline Hunter Maass. A talented artisan, specializing in custom cabinets, Ted was a friend to all who knew him. A kind- hearted gentle man who loved the simple things in life – fishing, boating, rivers, creeks and Pawley’s Island – he will be missed by all that knew him. An exceptional harmonica-playing “Big Foot” that followed his passion in restoring an antique wooden boat that he enjoyed often with his friends and family.
Surviving are his children, Theodore Nicholas Maass, III (Ryan Bailey Maass), Carl Alexander Maass and Caroline Hunter Maass; sister, Mary E. Maass; brother, James E. H. Maass (Linda Adams Maass); brother-in-law Mitch Wilkins and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and devoted friends.
In addition to his parents, Ted was predeceased by his sister, Eliza Maass Wilkins.
