I always enjoyed seeing Ted come to Pleasant Run Golf Course on a daily basis. He would walk over and and chat with the many golfers that he knew. He never played a round of golf but he loved the game of golf and the stories behind golf. Later in life he wasn't able to walk over and see us, we missed him. He would sneak in a coneydog ever now and then even though he had lost a lot of weight. His son Ted took up the game and we enjoy seeing him come to PR with his buddies. He was a Good Man.
