December 1943 – May 2023
Ted, at the age of 79, passed away in his home with the love of his life, Sandi and their two daughters, Christa and Iris by his side.
He was born in Germany and in 1951, the entire family immigrated to Vancouver to start their life, where he grew up.
Ted met his wife Sandi in Vancouver and they married in September of 1965. Ted and Sandi moved to Toronto shortly after. Ted then moved his family to Kamloops in 1970 to start his career and tenure of 27 years with BC Tel where he took on the roles of Drafter and then Drafting Engineer. He retired in 1999.
Ted’s love of good times and celebrations expanded with his interest in photography and editing, with Ted it was very much about the details. He had a love of music and travel. Many fond memories have been made throughout the years which will remain in the hearts of his family and friends forever.
Ted is survived by his loving wife Sandi of 58 years, his daughters Christa Pinnell (Les), Iris Wessler (Don Beattie); grandchildren Kayla and Andy Clark, Cassi and Jesse Beattie.
Upon Ted’s passing, he was predeceased by his parents, Heinrich and Luise Wessler, his brother Gerhard, his sisters, Inge, Gisela, Hannelore (Loppu), and Heidi. He is survived by sister Marlene and two brothers Norbert and Joachim.
A small celebration of life will be shared at Ted’s church, Sahali Fellowship, located at 1565 Summit Dr, Kamloops, BC on Saturday May 27, at 2:00 pm. The family welcomes all that are able to attend to share so many wonderful memories of Ted.
