Ted Williams

Death Notice

WILLIAMS, Ted - Peacefully at Chartwell Riverside on Saturday, January 25, 2020, Edward Percival “Ted” Williams of London age 81. Beloved husband of Lynn for 59 years. Loving father of Lee and her husband Dave Clark, Wendy (the late Peter McDonald), Andy and his wife Trudy Williams, and the late Brad Williams (2014). Poppa Ted of Haley (Jordan), Haden (Annie), Evan, Anne (Thomas), Jack, Mary, Hugh, Sarah (Simon), Emily, Jake, and Leah. Brother-in-law of Karen and Ed Oleschuk.

Ted was the cherished only child of Ralph and Wilma Williams, growing up in many small towns in Ontario while his father followed his vocation as a United Church Minister. His family eventually settled in Toronto for Ted’s last year of high school where he met and later married Lynn. He established his 33 year long career at 3M Canada in Vancouver for the first 9 years before returning to London in 1969 with four kids in tow.

He was a capable outdoorsman instilling the love of camping and canoeing in his kids. He loved playing in and on the water and being in charge of the fire. He was a dedicated Blue Jays fan and loyal follower of his alma mater’s Western Mustangs. He made a fine martini and a renowned Caesar salad and he was happiest at the firepot with his family and friends.

He was a big man with an even bigger heart.

Visitation on Friday from 2-4 pm at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James St. at Richmond, where a Celebration of His Life will be conducted on Saturday, February 1 at 3 pm. Reception to follow. Memorial contributions to Meals on Wheels or the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
