    I first “met” Ted some 40 years ago through Rohm & Haas via the “Twiitter” of that era: telex. His humor and charm showed through even through that ancient medium. Through tour work years, we became much more than colleagues and formed a lasting friendship that I will miss greatly. It was a pleasure and an honor to know him.

    Our love and our condolences to you,
    Kayson and Corinne

    Dear Glenda,

    Sending Gerti and my heartfelt condolences to you and your family. I had the privilege of working closely with Ted for 22+ years and in all that time, found that not only was he charming, witty, an inspiring, wise teacher and mentor – he also deeply cared for the people he worked with. In our time after “retirement” we always enjoyed our visits to your home and remember fondly Ted acting as both gracious and entertaining host and tour guide on our trips to the Bay Area. He will be missed. Although he has left us in this world, the impact he’s had on us over all those years will live on forever and be forever cherished.

    With love,
    Gerti and Juergen Strauss

    Dear Glenda, Philip and Allan.
    Lovely Ted! Ted was one of Inga and Errol’s closest friends from London in the mid-1960s. I was so sad to hear the news of his passing. He was a loyal friend to mother, Inga, for many decades and I was thrilled that he was able to meet my wife Karen and our 3 children on his last visit to England in 2013. Ted was very a positive male role model for me as a child and teenager, for which I’m grateful. My brother, Derek and I had the most incredible visit to Australia generously paid for my Ted back in Christmas 1983 and a highlight was hiking with Ted in the Grampian mountains of Victoria State. Lovely Ted, a lovely, loyal, kind man!

    Dear Glenda,
    Ted will be remembered as a true gentlemen. My experience with Ted was closest when we were together in Japan working for Rohm and Haas. We enjoyed many times together in Nagoya, Tokyo and places around Japan. Barb and I were saddened by Ted’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Barb and Bob Downing.
