  1. Ted was always smiling and always at Barb’s side. Ted was such fun! He sat next to me in the April Sound Church choir and he could get me giggling at the drop of a hat! I think he enjoyed making me crack up. Then Barb would turn around and give him “a look”. Those two were so fun together. He was just a good, kind, caring man.

    Barb my heart is with you and the family.

  2. I met Ted in 1979 in Albuquerque , N.M. . Ted was one of those rare people you meet in your life that you will never forget . If you went to the divtionary and looked up the word “Charisma” the definition would be “Ted Ellis” . So many cherished memories , fishing , camping , round-up time and of course going out with the wife’s for dinner . To my lifelong friend may you RIP . Barbara and family my sincere condolences during this difficult time …
