  10. So very sorry to the family for your loss. It was an honor and a blessing to have had Ted in my life. You will all be in my heart.

  11. Ted and I just recently became phone pals and unfortunately I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting him in this world. I always enjoyed our conversations and very much looked forward to a rendezvous here in SE Asia; however, that is currently on hold until we meet in a better place. My sincere condolences to my son-in-law Ryan, his sister Rory, his brother Adam, and all of the family and friends that knew and loved Ted.

  12. So sorry to hear of Ted’s passing last week. He had filled our prescriptions for many years at the Shoprite Pharmacy in Shelton. We shared so many memories of growing up in Bridgeport and had so many laughs together. He had such a gregarious and warm personality. I have missed our conversations since his retirement, but will never forget the sound of his infectious laugh. May he rest in eternal peace. I am grateful for having known him…

  13. Adam and family,

    I am so sorry for your loss and although I didn’t know your father I’m quite sure that he was pretty proud of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers as always and I am thankful to have you in my life. Be well my friend.
