Having the honor and pleasure to have worked with Ted for many years and have know him more as an older brother then just a friend, just looking at his picture I realized just how much I miss his smile. He was always ready with council(his way of saying I have been down that road and you don’t need to go there) and always there with a laugh. He was wise beyond his years and very willing to share his knowledge which I needed a lot of. I try to take the lessons I learn from Ted and apply them today both at work and in everyday life. Now I understand why he as always pulling at his hair. I consider it an honor if someone said I was just like Ted. I was sadden when Doug told of Ted’s pasting, but knowing him he didn’t complain and kept smiling through it. There are few like Ted.

Ted, I will miss your odd sense of humor, nearly as strange as mine. You always kept me laughing. Until we meet again, my brother…

I’m saddened to hear this news. I had the pleasure to work alongside Ted at Compaq for a couple years. We all worked in the test lab, a loud and rambunctious group, in which Ted was often the leader of the pack. He always gave us much to laugh at. Thinking of those moments, I can hear that outburst of laughter and his attempts to unsuccessfully quiet to a snicker, leaning sideways in his chair and almost falling over! He enjoyed life and brought that to others. He was so easy to be around and made everyone feel comfortable. And the stories… He was a great storyteller, with words that captivated his audience. I am glad our paths crossed. My prayers go out to his family. He was a great man.

To my best friend and brother from the 2nd grade thru High School thru life. We were inseparable growing up. The times we spent going to St Albans park. Then moving on to playing handball, which we became good at. Then moving on to basketball. We spent as much time together as real brothers do. We spent a lot time laughing and joking around. Then there was a period when we lost touch. I was happy that Yolanda found me and we had a chance to reconnect again. I was happy to see my brother again. I know we will see each other again and it will be as no time has passed. Rest in peace, the Richardson family will miss you

My man – I wish I wasn’t saying goodbye. I have missed you greatly since you left the Springs to be near those grand babies of yours. I know they brought great joy to your heart. The caliber of a human being is always if there is a vacuum when you leave – I can say there is now a big hole in this world since you left it. But you left a trail of love and wisdom; good paths for the rest of us to follow. I will miss you.

Yolanda, I met you, Ted and your girls back in Colorado Springs years ago. What a pleasure to have known him and see the artistry, and observe the intellect in his quiet demeanor. May your memories give you and your girls/ladies strength over the next few days, weeks and months. There will come a time when you say or hear his name – You will SMILE!!

To a great fellow veteran, co-worker, and just a genuine person and citizen. My memory of you is indelible and I’m grateful for your friendship in our work together at BAE. I can still picture clearly, you and your best pal, Jermaine working with me in understanding the complexities and creating technical solutions to support our test systems. May your family take comfort in knowing that you were a positive force for many and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Rest in Peace Ted.

Ted was a great friend of mind, that I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to spend time with in the pass. Ted was a man of few words, but spoke just enough to get his point across. He loved his family, especially his granddaughters who were the ? of his eyes, he spoke of them often. He also loved to have fun, no matter the situation, he would always find a way to make you smile with a joke or two, LOL. Although Ted was older and much wiser then I, he always treated me as an equal and respected my thoughts and opinions as I did his. I never once heard him complain about the pain I knew he dealt with on a daily basis. He was one of the strongest men I knew with a personality of gold. He would give anyone the shirt off his back if they were in need. I will certainly miss Ted but I know, haven got a little better the moment he arrived. I’ll keep my eyes on them ? until we meet again my friend. I would like to acknowledge Teds loving wife (Yolonda) who was by Teds side from start to finish, without one complaint. She’s an angel in Disguise and I pray that God gives you comfort and all the blessing you deserve. Love Kevin

Ted, you will definitely be missed. I appreciate the guidance and advice you’ve provided me when we were working together at BAE about dealing with the team and life in general. I’ll never forget our conversations. You spoke with so much wisdom and I just adored how much you loved your wife. You were a true gem and as I said earlier, you will be missed. To the Murray family, I know it’s difficult, however, just know that I’m continuously praying for your comfort and strength because although Ted is physically not here anymore, he forever lives in your hearts. Ted, rest in Heavenly Peace, my friend! Until we meet again! Jovita

Where do I start. From the first time we met, we meshed like long lost brothers. Your words of wisdom soothed my mind and soul. Our conversations were epic. Sports, politics, and life. The laughs we shared will not be forgotten. The love you shared with Yolanda and the way you two interacted with each other always brought a smile to my face. Your space on this Earth will be forever remembered. Love you and I will see you again My brother.

To my good friend and my second “pops”, you will truly be missed big time. I always looked forward to your weekly rants about politics, basketball and black folks. Somehow I would always be the one who got in trouble at the end of those conversations, but it was worth it 🙂 It’s amazing how quickly those 13 years flew by since we first met at work; I enjoyed each and every one. We still have much to talk about and maybe I will come up with some answers to all of those riddles you left me with… until we meet again RIP Ted.
