Ted was a giant of a man, both in his family life and in his long and distinguished career in business, retiring as Vice Chairman of the Board and C.E.O. of CCL Industries Inc., a company he remained passionate about throughout his life. Ted inspired all who knew him with his brilliance in business, his wonderful humour, generosity and compassion for all, and his deep love of nature. His family will forever cherish the closeness of our large and boisterous clan which he and Marilyn so often brought together for joyful celebrations in their loving home. He was a genuine man who lived all aspects of life with the highest of standards and morality – an example that will shine on in the hearts and minds of his children and grandchildren.

There will be a Service of Remembrance on Tuesday, March 5, 2002 at 2 p.m. at ST. JOHN’S ANGLICAN CHURCH, YORK MILLS, 19 Don Ridge Drive.
