    Sorry for the family’s loss of Ted. Worked with Ted at Walmart and always saw him as being a kind hearted coworker. He always went beyond what was expected of him at work. He would help anyone out if he was able to. Whenever he was not working, I would always see him with his wife Marilyn and you could tell that he really cared about his wife and family. Just wanted to send my condolences to the family. I am sure he will be greatly missed.
