  • Ted was an amazing human! He always made me smile when he would come through the office with his Ireland accent. You will be deeply missed by many but will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace Ted! My deepest condolences to the family and praying for some healing and peace during this very difficult time.

  • Ted (mate) you will be missed! You were like a second father to me, I learned alot of useful things from you, soap equipment related as well as how to do many household and automotive fixes and repairs.
    See you in heaven buddy, we’ll have a coffee together again then.

  • It’s with great sadness to be writing about the passing of such a great and humble man. ISO I thought I would share a memory of him.
    I remember him in the early eighties watching me try to do tricks on my BMX. He said to me “do you know you can make a car go on its front two wheels?” Being a naive kid I laughed. So he took me in his Mini to a long road which I live by to this day. He sped up as fast as possible and the breaked and got the mini on its front two wheels. Dangerous? Yes! But that’s why he was and always will be known as the daredevil in the family.
    He will be missed and loved always and our thoughts are with the family

  • I sure am going to miss our Saturday afternoons at Cronin’s. Marianne and your beautiful family you have my deepest sympathies. RIP Ted God Bless🙏🙏🙏
