On Tuesday, May 10th in his 96th year Ted conceded to Queen Elizabeth in the race for longevity and slept his last sleep.
Born in Vassar, Hungary Ted fled to Canada in 1956 where he met Win, who, for the next 55 years was his wife, finder of many things, dance and travel partner, voice of reason and of course co-gardener.
Ted’s perseverance, sense of humor and imposing size were passed on to his children Ica (Ferenc), Mike (Jen) and Emma (Mike).
Ted was always proud of his grandchildren and showed his love for Tomas, Gabriella, Matthew, Liliana, Michael and Joshua in many unique ways.
Remembered for his somewhat truthful storytelling (on repeat at times), his unfailing work ethic, his willingness to help family and friends (whether wanted or not), sense of adventure and his love of gardening, he left a lasting impression on most people he encountered.
As per Ted’s wish, cremation has taken place and a ceremony and Celebration of his Life will be held on Saturday, June 4th at 1 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Church, 29 Park St. W. Dundas, Ontario where the event will be live streamed as well.
In Lieu of flowers a charitable donation to the St. Paul’s Benevolent Fund or the Alzheimer Society of Canada would be greatly appreciated.
