It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ted (67), our beloved husband, father and papou (grandfather). Ted passed away peacefully on the afternoon of April 11, 2022 at Cottage Hospice in Vancouver, just as the sun burst out of the clouds, with his wife and daughters closely at his side.
Ted was a man who possessed a great passion for his family and for life. He was actively involved in his community and enjoyed using his mechanical ingenuity to help anyone who needed it. His sharp wit and goofy sense of humor kept those around him laughing, even in the hardest of times. For Ted, a perfect day would include riding his Harley to the airport, flying his self-built ultralight Challenger and cooking up one of his special recipes for a family gathering.
Ted will be lovingly remembered by his wife Margie, daughters Amy and Sarah, son-in-law Marijan, and his beloved grandchildren Chloe, Abigail, Mateo and Oliver. He was predeceased by his brother Fote (Corinne) in 2007. He will be missed by his brothers and sisters; Tom, Jasmine (Dave), George (Carrie), Art, Eleanor (Bob), Jim (Susan), Greg (Nicole); and brother-in-law Danny (Marilyn) as well as his many nieces and nephews, extended family and a great number of friends.
Ted will be remembered for his integrity, his strength of spirit, and the friendship and generosity he extended to all whom he met.
“Gone from our sight, but never our memories – Gone from our touch, but never our hearts.”
