Heaven gained another incredible person. I grew up with Ted's son Travis Morarity. In fact I was at the Morarity's house quite often playing stick ball and/or playing Nintendo Golf. Ted was truly a father-figure to me and I know of him as being a tremendous, loving human being. My prayers and condolences goes out to Joyce, Travis and Shannon. May your grief be short lived and pain free, knowing that your dad was a wonderful man. RIP Mr. Ted.

So sorry to learn of Ted's passing.  He was a high school classmate - 1963 to 1966.  He was a very kind man.   My thoughts and prayers are with his family.  He left you all too soon.

Ted made baseball games so much more enjoyable with his witty humor.

Ted and I were classmates from first grade at Sugar Run Elementary to graduation from Pomeroy High School. Quiet and reserved, always an honest person. The world is a better place because of people like Ted. Rest in peace old friend. You are missed by many.
