Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • My condolences to the family, Ted known as Uncle Ted to me) was always around when I was growing up. A lot of great memories when he and the family were over. He will be deeply missed 💕 - Posted by: Brenda MacKay (Neighbor ) on: Dec 22, 2020

  • Our sincere condolences to the Hodnett families. We have known Ted for the past 50 years. During that time, we spent some time travelling (La Vegas, Grand Forks and to the lake)with Ted and Bonnie, and sometimes with the boys, too. We also visited each other a lot, and looked forward to Ted’s Saturday afternoon visits. He had a lot of great jokes to tell, and was always making us laugh at something. Since he had his stroke, Ted and I had become phone friends on a daily basis. Sometimes it was more than once a day, but we always had a good laugh! Doug would try to see him once a week, to bring him a few of his favourite things to eat like, KUB bread, hot dogs, and perogies just for a treat. Ted always looked forward to the visits from Doug and especially our dog, Smokey. I have really been missing our phone calls, Ted, and Doug will be missing his visits to you. P.S. Still have the last message you sent to me on the phone. I’m saving that one!! No more pain and sorrow. Rest In Peace, Teddy Bear. Doug, Doreen and Steven Kaniuga (long time friends) - Posted by: Doreen Kaniuga (Long time friend) on: Dec 20, 2020

  • Ted was a great guy, I grew up on Hiawatha Ave and was babysat by Ted’s parents. Johnny was my first real friend, he was very good to me. Ted sharpened all my Dads saws, when I was younger! I really got to know Ted when we worked together at Sears. He was the “Teddy Bear!” He made you laugh by his jokes and kept your spirits up! He cared about you and others! Ted made a difference! Life is not always easy? Ted cared with a kind word, I will miss him! - Posted by: Ken Kowaluk (Former neighbor and friend from Sears) on: Dec 19, 2020
