Ann, Greg, Karyn, Kaitlyn, Holly, Neeraj, Griffin, & Elora:
We are so saddened to hear of the passing of Ted, husband/father/grandfather.
Mike, Alex & I were so privileged to have known such a sweet man who always greeted us with open arms & hugs. We were so grateful to spend such loving Thanksgivings in the Griffin home with Ted & Ann for the past few years. Conversation was never dull & was full of laughter & wonderful stories whether it be over the annual puzzle (with Ted picking out all the edges) -or- at the dinner table filling ourselves with all the phenomenal food! Ted enriched all our lives & he holds such an extra special place in my heart for being the kind of supportive & loving father-in-law my niece Karyn so deserved. You will be forever missed.

Another Angel has wings…
Love, Jeanette, Chris, Mike, & Alex

Ted will be greatly missed at the Holt Sr. Center; he was a great help in the kitchen, always had a great smile, full of energy.

I will certainly miss “Grampy’s” always welcoming me with a hug when I came to visit the Bhargava’s and he and his lovely wife Ann were there. He was upbeat and helpful. Always finding something to fix and something to teach his grandchildren. So full of life! What a treasure!

We are all greatly saddened at Grampy’s passing. We knew him as Holly’s dad from Michigan and enjoyed seeing him when he and Ann visited. He was so proud of Griffin and Ellora and it showed in everything they did together. He was equally proud of Holly and Neeraj for their devotion to their kids and to one another. He will be missed.
The OConnor family.
