He passed peacefully from our lives October 4, 2004. He met his "honey boo" Margaret Frampton in Washington, D.C. They were married in Washington D.C. and later sealed for "time and eternity" in the Salt Lake City Temple.

Teddy served as a member of the United States Marines where he was awarded the Silver Star and Purple Heart for gallantry in action, Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands in 1942.

Teddy and Margaret served two missions for the L.D.S. Church, where they touched many lives and made many friends in Columbia and Chile, S.A. Teddy was a father, husband, grandfather, great-grandfather, carpenter, teacher, policeman, farmer, Marine, missionary, locksmith. He was a good friend, neighbor and always will be an inspiration and example to those whose lives he touched.

Survived by his wife of 66 years Margaret Hansen, their two children, Richard and Elizabeth, five grandsons and four great-grandchildren.

Preceded in death by, well, darn near everybody.
