Ted was a Veteran of the U.S. Navy, serving during the Korean Conflict.

He was a longtime member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, Aerie #3634 in Michigan Center. He was one of the last living members of the Michigan Center Rat Pack. Ted enjoyed maintaining his yard and vehicles, computers, golf, music, boating on Wolf Lake and being a snowbird in Florida; he was a big fan of the Red Wings and NASCAR. His greatest love was time with family; his father and son time as well as attending events of his grandchildren, especially their sporting events.
