Ted passed away today

My brother-in-law passed away after a short but acute bout with cancer earlier today.

Ted's cancer had progressed from a melanoma on the neck to his lymph nodes and then on into a double-lung cancer that did not respond to agressive chemotherapy. Ted had a love of life and his rural home in the foothills of the Cascades. I remember him most for the extended hiking trips we took. He had a fasination with all things in the making of beer that were is traditional Christmas and birthday presents to everyone he knew. Ted leaves behind his wife (my sister) and his teenaged son. We will all miss him; he was very much a part of my life.
