Hi all. I am Teds father.

Ted died in a terrible accident two nights ago up at his new property north of Salmon ,Idaho He was working
alone with his new skid steer. It appears it got stuck and he was trying to pull it out with his big
truck and the skid steer was in gear when he got in between it and the bucket.

I found him late in the dark when he didnít come home. It was and still is traumatic.
After rushing back to my blacksmith friend., he arranged for search and rescue as well
as the sheriff to help. Around 12:30 am I left for Moscow, Idaho to tell his mom yesterday morning.
I am not able to talk without becoming unglued, but wanted you to know.

He was only 23. Why these things happen I suppose no one knows with certainty.
He knew many of you and met a few. His passion for the outdoors ran very deep.

I am so heartbroken, but wanted you all to know.

Teds Dad.

I am so sorry to get this news I always looked forward to his wilderness photos and contributions to this forum.

May he rest in peace knowing how much you loved him and how much he will be missed.

I can hardly believe it! So dang sorry for your heart breaking loss. He was one of the really good guys on here and I always enjoyed his posts and the sharing of his outdoor passion with the rest of us that can't be in Idaho.

A friend once shared this with me after the death of my father, and I'll pass it on: "Somebody with the spirit he had is never really gone...they're with us forever". At the time this was the most comforting thing I heard for some reason.

A parent should not have to bury their child. It's the worst thing I have ever experienced.

I'm terribly sorry for your loss and pray God gives your famly strength and comfort in your time of need.

This is a loss of a talent young man with so much potential and life ahead of him. It's a loss to all that had the privilege to know and spend time with him and all those who now will not have the privilege of that opportunity.

When the waves of rollercoaster emotion hit and you need someone to talk to, listen, or even scream at that's been there. Feel free to send me a pm and I will give you my #.

Boco, You were one of his heros. He talked to me often about "Boco" and his fur handling and how he would love to visit that part of Canada
and swing in and say hi.
I am still a mess as my boy was my best friend also. I often went with him on his lines and was so proud.
Only 23, man I'll never understand.

I also wanted to post the original message as he would have never posted again and now all know wy.

Thanks for all the prayers, I need them.

This IS a great forum and Ted will be missed. If, in the future you need to come on in and talk, you will be welcomed, as Ted was.

As a father myself of a fine son, I cannot imagine what you are going through.

I cannot imagine the pain this tragedy brings to his family and friends. You have my most sincere condolences.

I just read this, and am heartbroken for you! My worst fear is to outlive my kids! I'm in a really bad place right now anyway, but You will be in my thoughts, because, like you I don't understand why these things happen! I wish I could offer advice, but unfortunately I feel as if I've been forsaken also. I do wish you the best, and I hope you can keep your faith...

I just noticed Ted had been on here since 2008, and would have made him about 11 years old when he joined. I knew he'd been on here quite a long time, but I didn't realize how long.
As I said earlier, he was a great member on here. We always enjoyed opening his posts.

Ted's dad,

One thing is certain in our lives which is that all of us will meet tragedy.

Amidst the tragedy of death,
We say "goodbye" if the departed lived in God's grace,

Or "goodnight, I'll see you in the morning," if all involved lived in God's fullness of grace upon grace (John 1:16)

We pray, as we always do, that it was the latter.

Blessings during this time,
Mark

So very sorry for you and your family's loss, you all will be in my prayers. I will miss his posts and pictures.
Try to find some comfort in knowing that he is in a MUCH better place and that you WILL meet again.
Feel free to stop in on the site and talk. Many here (myself included) have dealt with a major loss. You can private message if you don't want to post for everyone to see.
Again, I'm so sorry.
Tony

As a neighbor and fellow trapper, I'm gonna really miss Ted. Words that I write here don't even come close to the grief you're feeling as his family. I'm sure hoping he's got another line figured out already and he'll be busy doing his thing. Peaceful rest, Marten Ted...

Marten Ted's Dad, I am so sorry for your terrible loss. There are no words to describe it. You sure reached out to the right group of people here. I'm sure you will receive nothing but love and prayers and support from these people who really think highly of the son you raised - and of you who raised him. I hope you feel comfortable here if you would like to stick around! Ditchdiver mentioned that many on here have suffered losses, and I'm sure would share some thoughts and lend a shoulder to lean on.

God bless you and your family,
Patrice

I like many other's are deeply saddened by this news a loss of any life is a difficult load to bear especially when it's someone with ambition and drive to excel with a willingness to go the extra distance to succeed.
Yes his time was cut short here on earth only because God needed a good young man's help in heaven .
Prayers for all the friend's and family effected by his passing .

Very sad news. I got to know Ted last month, shipped him some .204 bullets and .270 bullets he couldnít find. Shared bunch of pictures back and forth in text messages. Great guy full of ambition, this breaks my heart.

Prayers sent.

Thanks Gulo,

Ted knew of you of course and often wanted to give you a call to see if he could quiz you a bit on
how to become a professional government trapper. It was his goal amung many others.
He was good friends with Dave Morelli who lives out your way.
He was just too shy to ask. I think he would have eventually.

Thank You all so much for your pouring of support.
He was my only child and I had him when I was 40. We still lived together in our place north of Salmon, Idaho.
What I thought I would be doing next year and into the future is now gone and changed forever.
I had just semi retired and was planning on being with him full time on his fall / winter lines.

I hope I am not coming across as self pity, but I knew I could get some good feelings out
of such a great group of folks. So thank you all again and again.

I am getting a lot of local support too as Ted had many friends young and older.

Take Care and I will check in from time to time.

Teds Dad,
Don

Don, I just sent you a private message. If you haven't gotten a PM on here before, you need to click on the flashing envelope icon near the top of the page to open it.

People here have lots to offer you. It has only been days since this tragic event and it is so new and raw. Everyone knows that and cares.

There is no one better to lean on than a bunch of trappers!
