A retired Certified Engineering Geologist with the City of Los Angeles, Ted enjoyed frequent walks at the LA Zoo with two of his nieces while living in Burbank until the age of 89. In January of 2020 he moved north to live on a family property in Humboldt County, CA, with his two daughters, two granddaughters, and three great-grandchildren. In Humboldt he celebrated his 90th birthday, took almost daily, sometimes twice daily walks, spent time with his great-grandchildren, and wrapped up every day with an appreciative word or two about what a nice day it had been. He is already missed.
