Ted Wichers Sr.
March 10, 1929 – June 14, 2013
It is with great sadness that the Wichers family announces the passing of Theodore Joseph Wichers-Schreur (Ted Wichers). Ted gave the fight of a lifetime these past couple of years as he battled not only Alzheimer’s disease, but also lung cancer.
He leaves behind his devoted wife, Anne Wichers, along with his six children, Brenda, Diane, Joanna, Kathy, Mary Ann, and Ted (Jr.), along with their spouses. Ted’s spirit will now be united with his son, Peter.
The hands of a working man now lay to rest, but he has proudly left his mark on the world through the many constructed houses, churches, recreation centres, farms, and stores he has built. Mostly though, his mark will be seen as his 14 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren continue on to make him proud.
The family will be respecting Ted’s wishes of a private memorial service.
If you wish to honour Ted’s memory, donations to the Alzheimer Society of Canada or the Township of Osgoode Care Centre would be greatly appreciated.
