We Remember


Passed away on Friday, September 25, 2015 at around noon. How like Ted to leave early on a Friday! He is survived by his loving wife Ruth; daughter Kathryn Abercrombie (Michael Bordwine) of Toronto; son Cody Abercrombie of Vancouver; brother Jim Abercrombie (Shirley) of Vanderhoof, BC; Kyle Jensen and Sarah Miller (brother and sister to Cody). Predeceased by his parents Gwen and Bert Abercrombie. Ted attended St. Mary’s University from 1966 – 1970 on a football scholarship. He had an extensive career working as an employment counsellor with the Federal Government. Ted was an avid sportsman with a love of team sports as he was very competitive, but more so, he loved to socialize. He loved to play baseball, curling, hockey, golf and cards. Ted also had the pleasure of coaching his son’s soccer team.

A special thanks to Dr. Hart, Dr. Adams and the staff at Brandt Creek Mews for being so amazingly dedicated, loving and caring with all of your efforts to make Ted feel he was part of your family there.

Followed in his footsteps to Bowman Employment Services after he had gone on sick leave, missed your smile and wit. Condolences Ruth, worked with you as well, memories are precious

  • Paul and Linda Myers says:

    It was with great sadness that we learned of Ted’s passing. We were out of the country and unaware of this sad event and consequently we were unable to attend Ted’s memorial service. Paul worked with Ted for many years and Paul and Linda curled with Ted. Our condolences to Ruth and all of Ted’s family. No one could tell a joke quite like Ted – he was a great guy and will be truly missed.
