I am so sorry to hear of Ted's passing. We had so much fun with him when we were living in the Keys. I remember my husband and I going out on his boat many a nights with Brian, Cheryl and other people and staying out many a nights until 11 pm. We would be out in the water with chairs drinking and all of us having fun. When Ted quietly got in the boat, we all followed and got in because he knew we were shark food. When we moved from our house and we said good bye he cried. So many good memories we have and will miss him. Love Always Donna Henry

I was in Peace Corps with Ted in Jamaica (92-95). He taught me to drink and appreciate scotch there (Talisker) and he even gave me a special glass which I use to this day and always think of him. Last night I had a glass for the first time in awhile and thought I'd look him up. I'm so sorry to hear about his passing. Ted and I had so many fun and crazy adventures. He was one of the most generous, funny / mischievous, thoughtful and creative people I've known. I have pictures and some of his drawings from our time there - I'd be happy to share if you'd like to reach out to me. Warmly, Kim

I was saddened to see Ted's death listed in The Link. The Giesbrechts were were with our Wilmington College student group in Vienna in the Fall of 1970. Ted and his siblings were all young, and very sweet kids. I remember them all fondly.

I met Ted in Miami when we both joined the Peace Corps. We have stayed in touch until late August talking about how best to prepare squirrel, small engine repair, fishing, weapons and the joys of his family. He was one of the most generous humans I have had the pleasure of knowing. I will miss my buddy We always ended with ‘catch you later Brother’ and I am certain that will be the case.

Ted was a good friend for 48 years, dating back to Jr. High. Will miss his humorous observations and cartoons, a number of which I still have. Carrie and Jacqueline, if you ever need a humorous story about Ted, let me know, I have plenty to share.

Ted and I were friends in High School and our early college days. Somewhere around here I have a caricature he did of me in college. Sadly lost touch with him and terribly saddened to hear of his passing. Our deepest condolences and prayers to the family.
