Edmund Waldemar Ill Jr. ’41

Published in Apr. 3, 1991, issue

TED ILL DIED Nov. 2, 1990, of congestive heart failure in the Point Pleasant, N.J. hospital. He was 72.

Ted was graduated from Lawrenceville. As a freshman he ran on our crosscountry team. He left at year's end to join the Insurance Co. of North America and his entire career was in insurance. He retired in 1983.

During WWII Ted saw service on Saipan as a master sergeant in the Army. He was a member of the Mantoloking and Bay Head yacht clubs. As an outstanding sailor on N.J.'s Barnegat Bay, he was famous for never tying in a reef, no matter how boisterous the weather.

One of our most loyal classmates, Ted never missed a reunion after his Army discharge. Invariably he was among the first to arrive and usually the last to leave. Serving for many years on 1941's Executive Committee, he was a reunion chairman, a regional V.P. for Annual Giving, and a secretary of the Monmouth Cry., N.J. Princeton Club.

Ted leaves his widow, Marjorie Porter III, sons Richard Crosby III and Robert Burnett 111, six grandchildren, and his sister, Francis III Dalzell w'39. To them the Class extends its sincere sympathy. Teddy will be remembered with great affection and will be missed by all of us.
