The family moved to Medicine Hat in1953, for Ted to be closer to school. He was an average student but excelled with a strong mechanical aptitude.

Ted and Judy were married in 1964, and had their first son Jason in 1967. Shortly thereafter another son, Wade arrived in 1970. Ted continued to work at Gardner Motors until 1993, but his true calling was to return to the home farm when his middle brother Leonard passed away. Ted returned to his true passion, being a steward of the land and working with cattle. He was happiest being with his hunting buddies, family camping, fishing, and boating. Ted had a smile on his face while spending quality time with family and friends enjoying a nice meal, stories and laughter.
