Condolence from Kristy on July 17th, 2020 1:02 pm

Grandpa was a lot of wonderful things. An ambitious, hardworking entrepreneur, a loving husband, partner, father, and so on – a true family man. As his granddaughter, one of his most memorable characteristics to me was how much he just adored kids. I think he ran a pretty tight ship with his sons, but man was he ever a softy with his grandchildren.

I’ll always remember the sound of his voice when he would so sweetly and lovingly say “aww, poor baby“ if ever one of us had a meltdown or a boo-boo. You couldn’t help but hear and feel his love. I’m so grateful to have been able to spend time with him and Sheena’s and Nando’s girls over the last couple of years, as it was probably the happiest I’ve seen him in quite a while.

I will also never forget the pool rescue. Dad was, I suppose, “testing my stamina” without water-wings in the deep end for the first time (lol, I was fine). Grandpa approached to see me floundering a little (and probably being a touch dramatic).. and I guess he didn’t see Dad standing watch, because Grandpa ran full-tilt across the patio and dove in fully clothed, shoes and everything, to rescue me. He probably had a few choice words for Dad at the time, but it sure made a cherished and hilarious memory.

Love you to the moon, Grandpa.

Condolence from Judy Wolanski on July 17th, 2020 5:12 pm

Dear Teddy, Gord, Larry & Kevin,
We offer our sincere condolences at this time with the loss of your Dad…to you and your families and loved ones. Although we had lost touch over the years I know that my sisters & brother & I would talk about our times together with your family & we enjoyed updates from Dad and Jennifer.
I recall a story that your Uncle Ted told us once about a vanity license plate he wanted to purchase & the Ministry nixed it, until one was submitted that they approved. Uncle Ted said he just wanted to make others smile when they saw his plate!
With love,
Frank and Judy (Hunter)Wolanski
Chatham, Ont.

Condolence from Larry Pope on July 17th, 2020 7:36 pm

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Ted was one of a kind and touched many lives over the years.

The service at the cemetery was conducted wonderfully by Rev Kimberly Belanger. Thank you Kimberly.

Teddy said a few words including a reference to the verse on the back of Ted and Catherine’s gravestone. It is from an old poem by Anonymous entitled The Weaver. Dad (Ted) carried a piece of paper in his wallet for many years wiThe Weaver Poem”

My life is but a weaving, between my God and me,
I do not choose the colors, He worketh steadily,
Oftimes He weaveth sorrow, and I in foolish pride,
Forget He sees the upper, and I the underside.

Not till the loom is silent, and shuttles cease to fly,
Will God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why.

The dark threads are a needful in the skillful Weaver’s hand,
As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.

–ANONYMOUS with the verse, written out by his aunt Jen
