In his younger years, Ted spent time with his nieces and nephews in Maine. He loved taking the kids to the beach and going on many adventures with them. All nine of the kids would fit in his little VW for the adventures! He also loved spending time at the farm in Northwood, New Hampshire with his relatives.
