After finishing Grade 9, he went to work on the railroad at Lille, SK. He started his career as a mechanic at Hunt-Graber in 1957 and worked there for 41 years. Ted started dating his wife Joan in 1963 and they were married June 26, 1965. They made their home of 56 years in Elrose, SK where they raised 4 beautiful girls. Ted enjoyed cooking, volunteering at the rink, a good game of smear, curling, hunting, fishing, helping on the farm and especially watching his grandchildrens’ activities.
