He was born in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Nov. 5, 1919.

A Veteran, Ted served his country by enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps prior to World War II. He served in the U.S. Merchant Marines during World War II and then in the U.S. Army after the war.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Grace Smith, after 55 years of marriage. Ted leaves three children, two daughters, Doris Mae Cook of Dewitt, Mich., and Mary Jane Sober of Sebring, Ohio; and son, Lary F. Smith of Troy, Mont.; six grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

Following Ted’s wishes, a private committal of his ashes will be held at a later date.
