Ted belonged to the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists and the Scotch Malt Whiskey Society of Canada. He was a professional Electrical Engineer, graduated from UBC in 1957 and worked for BC Hydro, Alcan and MacMillan Bloedel. In Ted’s leisure time, he enjoyed fishing (salt, fresh and stream fishing), skiing, hiking, boating, cycling, fresh air and fitness. Every season was a new adventure for Ted and most likely included outdoor activities.

Flowers gratefully declined. A donation in Ted’s name to a favourite charity supporting outdoor activities would be greatly appreciated.

A celebration of Ted’s life will be held on Saturday, July 9th at 11:00am from Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation and Reception Centre, 1101 Ryan Road with a reception to follow in the “Garden Room and Outdoor Patio” of the funeral home.
