Gail so sorry to hear about Ted he was one of a kind, could tell stories all day long and really liked talking about his family. I’m sure Ted carried duct tape and bailing wire in his truck just to make sure he could keep the old truck running so he wouldn’t be late. I know he loved his family dearly because he talked about you with respect and love. Ted was a character he will be missed.

Gail and family,
I worked with Ted at National Carriers for many years. I so appreciated his willingness to help others learn the business and reaching out when he knew we needed help. He was the best of the best .
He was always talking about his family and what was going on. How proud he was of his kids and Brady .
There never was and never will be a guy as good as Ted!
Prayers to all of you.

I remember uncle Neal telling us as kids he had a special screwdriver. If we didn’t behave he would unscrew our belly button to make our butt fall off. He was not only my uncle but my second dad. You will forever remain in my heart.
