    Uncle Ted will always be remembered as good man; one who was always helping others. He helped me in ways too numerous to name.

    To the Prasatek Family-

    Having known my dear friend Sophia for over 20 years, I feel that I also know each of you as well. I have always admired the unity in your family and I know that your husband and father was responsible in large part for that closeness and love. He will be missed not only by his family but by the many people whose lives he touched.

    Please accept my condolences on Ted’s passing. He was very active with the VFW in Fredericksburg until quite recently it seemed. Men such as he are rare indeed.

    Rest easy Ted, the other “duckhunters” will take over for you.

    Chaplain Ted served his country and then his God with honor and distinction. I was inspired by his testimony and prayers. Now he has reported-in to his final assignment, where I’m confident he received the ultimate commendation: “You have done well, my good and faithful servant.”
    Rest in Peace, Comrade.

    My sincerest condolences to Anna/ Francine and the family. Ted has left the most enduring memories of a faithful and God fearing warrior at The Triuumphant Church. His positive and go getting “let God” attitude has impacted me, my daughter Lesley and son David permanently in our walk with the Lord.
    May blessings of Peace abide with the family as I’m confident that Ted will ever rest in Peace. A Faye Davis

    My sincere regrets for the loss of this fine and worthy pastor. He will be missed indeed.

  28. Shara Abel on said:

    My dad said there were not enough words to express the loss of his best friend and all Ted meant to him. Our family has so many fond memories growing up, doing things and going places with your family. Your dad was a very special man with a true heart for the Lord and His work. Ted had a true evangelist’s passion with an incredible testimony. He was very unique in so many ways. Your dad could make the mundane exciting and fun! No one could fry up eggs on a campfire like he could..even if it was just in the back yard! We were blessed to know him as I’m sure many were.
    May God tenderly hold you and your family in His loving hands and soothe your sorrow. We will see your dad again one day and there will be joy and rejoicing! Blessings to you and all of your family. We love you.
