Yes... I'm very sad to say that I just received the phone call.
Dear friend, and one of the true good guys in the music gear industry.
He will certainly be missed.
I'll work on getting some more details for you guys and post when appropriate.

More than once I emailed Ted with an emergency, and he always came through, sometimes even shipping things next day air to me for free. What a great guy, he will be missed. thanks for everything Ted

Was just hunting for an extra F150 when a friend called me with the sad news. I know he had been feeling bad for awhile. All good things come to an end I guess.

Oh man, I just saw Ted several months back when I went to his shop to pickup my Scumback speakers (Yes, Scumbacks are made at Weber's shop here in Indiana). He was on an Oxygen tank, but took off his nasal canula and gave me a tour of his shop. Really a true gentleman and a first class act all the way- God Bless, Ted. We'll miss you.
