Born January 19, 1940 at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Victoria, BC to Wallace and Beatrice Knott.
Dad left us February 9, 2016 to attend the eternal hockey game.
After a long courageous battle with various health issues, dad is no longer in pain.
After 57 years of marriage, Ted leaves his loving wife Sharon, daughters Shirley (Jeff) Neiser, Diana (Dougie) Elliott, Darlene Knott, grandson Colin Neiser (Stephanie), Kylie Neiser, Jourdan Elliott, brothers Gordie Knott, Doug Knott and their families and family friend Doug Skubovious.
Dad lived his first few years in Victoria moving to the Lake when he was five years old. Dad met mom as a young man, they soon married and raised their 3 daughters in the home they built in the early 1960’s on Rockland Road.
Dad’s lifelong love of hockey was instrumental in our Village building it’s first ever ice arena where dad spent his efforts, along with others, starting The Lakers Senior men’s hockey team.
Dad was also an avid sports fisherman where he caught many a “big one” at the Nitnat Gap. He was an expert at catching the fish but did we mention he would never eat it!
On warm sunny days you would find Ted cruising on his Goldwing bike and later years his Ford Mustang Convertible.
After retirement from a falling career, Mom and dad spent their latter years enjoying friends and sunshine at their second home in Indio, CA where they spent many months throughout the winter.
Family and friends are invited to join in a celebration of dad’s life at the Cowichan Lake Curling Arena, 311 South Shore Road Sunday February 21, 2016 from 1:00 pm til 3pm.
Flowers great fully declined, donations on dad’s behalf can be made to The Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Diabetes Association.
