May 26, 1940 – July 28, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Theodore (Ted) Thomas Baron on July 28, 2022.
Ted is survived by his daughter Jennifer and his two grandsons, Thomas and Nicholas Montemarano of Toronto. He was predeceased by his wife of 58 years, Carole Ann and his parents, Tom and Jessie Baron of Winnipeg.
Ted was a Winnipeg boy through and through. Born, raised, and educated in Winnipeg. Ted remained in his community throughout his family life, working career and retirement.
Early on in life, Ted successfully realized his entrepreneurial skills through ownership of Lombard Graphics and Magicuts Franchises across Western Canada from 1984 to 2002.
Ted was a longtime member of the Winnipeg Squash Racquet Club, the Scottish Gentlemen's Club and the Manitoba Club. Ted always said that it was through these memberships that he honed his skills in pool playing, scotch drinking and cigar smoking. During this time, Ted made many friends that remained constant throughout his life.
For all who knew him, Ted will be remembered and missed for his generous heart and quick wit. Always a loving, kind father and grandfather, Ted will be greatly missed and forever remain in the memory and hearts of Jennifer, Thomas and Nicholas.
A special thank you to Verlina Aquino for her ongoing support and caregiving to our family. Thank you to his longtime physician, Dr. P. Mehta and the entire team of doctors and nurses at Grace Hospital who saw Ted through his final days.
A celebration of Ted's life will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, August 24, 2022 at Neil Bardal Funeral Centre, 3030 Notre Dame Avenue.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to The Bill and Helen Norrie Library or in Ted's spirit, quietly pay it forward to a worthy cause or a person in need.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I was so sad to see this in the paper. Ted was a patient when I was working for Dr. Michael Helper. He was such a big man with a big heart and smile. We had so many conversations in the waiting room. It was at Dr. Helper's daughters wedding that I smoked my very first cigar with Ted. Sorry Ted, it was also my last! I am so sorry for your loss Jennifer. Rest in Paradise! - Posted by: Laura (patient at dental office) on: Sep 09, 2022

  • Dear Jennifer, I'm not sure you'll remember our family but my husband, Bill, and Ted were close friends for years and were partners in Lombard Graphics and a few other entrepreneurial "adventures" when they were younger. They had many good times together, as we all did in those early years. As is often the case, we drifted apart when starting new careers and families, but Bill and Ted did keep in touch, no matter how infrequently. They did get together shortly before Bill's death in 2021. I will always remember Ted as Bill's friend who really understood him - they were very much alike. My deepest condolences.
