He came to us from Elmira (N.Y.) Free Academy, where he participated in drama, playing lead roles in both junior and senior years. At Princeton he played football and golf in his first year and was on the varsity golf team as a senior. After Princeton he went to Cornell Law School, graduating in 1965. While in law school he married his wife, Marilyn, in 1964.
Classmate Bill Hilliard remembers him as “a happy guy with a sly smile and a good sense of humor. He was a strategic thinker with a deliberate speaking style and a good listener and observer. He valued family (in our case, Cannon Club mates) and friends.”
Following Cornell, Ted returned to Elmira and joined the family law firm, where he practiced until his retirement at age 60. Ted and Marilyn moved to Hernando, Fla., where he enjoyed golf, boating, and travel. He was also a nationally ranked (Gold Life Master) bridge player.
He is survived by Marilyn, daughters Laura and Christine, five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. To all the class extends its sympathy.
