He has been a Kalamazoo area resident since he attended WMU. During the Vietnam Era, Ted served in the United States Marine Corps. On June 23, 1967, he was united in marriage to Dorothy L.

His legacy will be honored there for many years. He was employed for many years as a financial planner, first with John Hancock Financial from 1967 to 1999 and then with The Wiser Financial Group from 1999 until his retirement in 2016.
