July 4, 1938 – April 7, 2022
In loving memory ~
Ted was born on July 4, 1938 in Grand Forks, B.C. and passed away peacefully on April 7, 2022 with his wife Carol by his side at the Poplar Ridge Pavilion in Trail B.C.
Ted is survived by his loving wife Carol of 33 years, his daughter Sherri (Dale) Armstrong, son Darren Morris, 2 grandchildren Joel and Logan Armstrong, 2 stepsons Todd (Liza) Trohan and Corey Trohan, and 4 step grandchildren, Taylor, Brett, Austin and Katelin Trohan.
Ted was predeceased by his mother Marjorie Morris and father Ivor Morris.
Ted grew up and went to school in Grand Forks and was a very active sportsman in hockey, baseball and track and field. He left Grand Forks in 1956 and followed his passion for hockey with a tryout for the Medicine Hat Tigers which led him to Hanna Alberta where he played Senior Hockey and was a top center for the Hanna Hornets for a few seasons.
He was also an avid left handed baseball pitcher for the Hanna Cubs and pitched a couple no- hitters. He enjoyed curling in a mens league in the winters and was also a member of the Hanna Kinsmen.
He married in 1961 and had 2 children and started up Ted’s TV and appliances in 1965. He ran that business until 1975 and moved his family to Calgary, Alberta. In 1989 Ted met Carol. They moved back to his hometown of Grand Forks in 1993 where they bought a beautiful acreage that him and Carol renovated, gardened and planted many trees. They married at their home in 1995 and remained there for 24 years until they moved into town in 2019. Ted sold advertising for the Grand Forks business and tourism map and later bought the business and ran it for many years. He also sold advertising for the GFI and the Border Bruins as well as Mountain Media signage for billboards around the Boundary/ Kootenay and Okanagan areas.
A huge thank-you to the doctors, nurses and many caregivers in both Grand Forks hospital and Poplar Ridge Pavilion in Trail for their kindness and compassionate care. Thank you to Deb at the Grand Forks Funeral Home for all of her help, care and compassion, it was truly appreciated.
In lieu of flowers please make donations to the heart and stroke foundation.
As per his wishes, there will be no funeral service. A private celebration of life will be held for close family and friends later this summer.
Ted’s jokes and laughter will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
