Recently long-time Waitati resident Ted Johnson passed away at the
ripe old age of 94. Over the years, Ted touched may people's lives
with his sharp wit and cheeky smile.
The great people of Waitati enabled Ted to live at home until his
passing, which was absolutely fantastic. Ted's funeral with all its
little humorous technical
difficulties was a shinning example of why Waitati is truly a
wonderful place to live.
I am so proud of all those who made Ted's life a little easier, and
rallied to send him off in style. A special mention should be made to
Mandy Mayhem, who for years has supported Ted in so many ways.
Selflessly giving her time and love to
Ted and including him in her clan.
We will all miss Ted, but I know that he would be looking down with a smirk!
