He studied in Alliance to become a licensed practical nurse. Ted had a 35-year career at Gordon Memorial Hospital, where he made many good friends among his co-workers.
After his retirement, Ted became the icing of his recliner and remote, except when Charlie, his last dog, got tired of him and sent Ted off to quaff many beers at the Olde Main Inn in Chadron.
Ted was preceded in death by his parents and son Bryant, and followed shortly by his dear sister, Sheila, and pets Sam, Tucker, Judd and Forest.
Ted is survived by his older brother, James and his wife Linda, of Edgemont, S.D., as well as his brother-in-law Jim Ray of Hemingford. He is also survived by numerous cousins and his dog, Charlie, who now visits the Olde Main Inn.
