  1. Uncle Ted you were taken away from us so suddenly. I will never forget all our adventures together. You were always the first person to do anything for you family and friends. Always making us laugh, that is what I’ll miss. We will be together again and I’ll buy you those slurpees I owe you!!! Love you forever. Krista <3

    Uncle Ted, I remember seeing you all day when I came over. I remember all the times I helped you in the yard to help you clean up and in the afternoons we would go out and sun tan. All the time we would make bets on who will get a question right and win a slurpee, I always lost and bought you a larger slurpee, and you always finished them. I will never forget your famous mac and cheese you made. We will be together again and eat Mac and cheese with hotdogs and slurpees and most importantly be together. I love you sooo much & I will never forget you. You are the best uncle a niece could ever ask for. Love Nicole <3

  2. My precious Ted,
    “If I could turn back time”…I don’t have those powers, but what I do have are all the great memories and no one can take those away from me. You are so precious to me Ted, I am blessed to have you in my life. , the only regret I have is that I could not take away your pain. Your big heart, your kindness and personality brings smiles to everyone. You always put others before yourself, wether at home or at work.. You will always be the best caregiver for mom and dad and no one can replace you.
    Ted, you will always be in my thoughts and my heart… I love you so much… I know you will always be with me.

    Love with all my heart your sister Ines

  7. A beautiful, bright and happy soul now enters Heaven, and we below can only feel the loss. We’re so blessed to have many, many, many happy memories and laughs to look back on (we never go on a waterslide without a salute to you). Ted, you were the greatest gentleman – caring, loving, selfless. Every life you touched was made better by your presence & influence. Your nieces and nephews will carry on your legacy and all you taught them with pride. It was far too short a time to be with you my dear cousin. Please continue to watch over your parents and family. Until we meet again . . .

  8. Ted, as sad as we are that your time here was cut short I feel blessed to have had a cousin like you in my life. A gentle giant & a true gentleman you never thought twice about helping someone out, always putting other before yourself, and a trait many of us could learn from, you always let your family know how important & loved they were.
    I’m grateful for the time we spent together over the past few years, whether it was jewelry shopping in NY, going down water slides at Sylvan Lake or just sitting out in the yard and talking, it’s memories i will hold on to and treasure .
    Your body may be gone but your spirit lives on.
    I love you and I miss you.

  9. Dear Maddalena Family,

    I was so sorry and sad to read of Ted’s passing. It was heartwarming to read the condolences written about Ted as that is also how I remember him. I worked with Ted at Alberta Vocational College when he was a student there the 2nd time. It was always a pleasure to work with Ted as he was always a true gentleman, generous, caring and motivated in his pursuit of work. My heartfelt sympathy to all of you in your loss.


  10. Dear Maddalena Family –

    I have very fond memories of Ted. In high school – many years ago – when I would come over and visit Ines, Ted would always tease me and make me laugh. He had the best sense of humor…one day we will both laugh together. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Janet and John Zoet
