Theodore Peter (Ted) Karry

Peacefully at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance, Chatham, on Wednesday January 9th, 2013, Mr. Theodore Peter (Ted) Karry of Chatham. He is remembered with love and admiration by his family; wife Betty Jean, his sister Win, and his children Kim (Daniel), Todd (Sharon), and Jeff (Laurel), as well as his grandchildren Christopher, Kevin, and Lexi. We shall miss his gentle good nature, his enduring humour as well as his determination and optimism. Following graduation from University of Western Ontario in 1949, he joined the Editorial Staff of the Chatham News and in 1954 began a 30 year career with Union Gas.

We are extremely grateful to Dr. Zeke Milkovic as well as the special people at St. Andrew's Residence for the years of excellent care and support.
