Ted had a passion for life and gardening. He lived his life as a farmer and worked hard for his family. Ted came to Canada in 1950 seeking immigration. He was the first in the family to come and scouted out farm land in Ardrossan. His parents and siblings were soon to follow and started a new life as Canadians. He served his church, his family and his Lord with unwavering faith even during the darkest of times.
