FURTHER INFORMATION IS NEEDED ABOUT THIS PERSON, THEIR LIFE, THEIR CAREER AND THEIR DEATH.

PLEASE SEND PHOTOS AND INFORMATION TO Cal

May they forever Rest In Peace

Ted, apparently, grew up in the Cowra ( NSW ) area ( 1949 – 1961 ) before moving to Sydney ( Brighton Le Sands area and Kogarah area ) before returning to Cowra once he reached the age of 15 and left Kogarah High School to join the work force.
Prior to joining the NSWPF,  he worked at the Cowra Wool store from around 1969 to 1972.
He was a lovely bear of a man but, unfortunately, his latter days were not always filled with joy.
In April 2018 he moved to Lismore, NSW, from Cairns, Qld due to the stifling heat in Cairns.  He originally moved into a Retirement village, in Cairns, due to having spent a significant amount of time in Hospital due to a Staphylococcal Infection in the spine.  Ted loathed the Retirement village but it was close to his daughter.
Despite being closer to his daughter, Ted felt he had to move to Lismore where the climate felt better for him.
Ted was found, deceased, this morning – Tuesday 8 January 2019, at his home.
Ted was a friend to many and a member of various Policing Facebook Pages / Groups where his quick wit was always welcomed.
We all wish you a safe journey and hope that you forever Rest In Peace mate.
Further details will be placed on this Memorial Post when they become available.
