Sending our condolences to the entire family during this difficult time. “Teddy the Barber” was truly one of a kind... from one of my first haircuts to my wedding day haircut to cutting my son’s hair for the first time (and beyond), he never ceased to amaze with his humour, kindness and stories. Thank you for the memories Teddy, you will be greatly missed. Condolences from Mike Huffman (& Family)

To Hope and family, I have wonderful memories of curling days with you and Ted. Especially, Friday ‘couple’s’steak night’ and Ted would bring his bologna. Ted was full of wise humour, and such a great man. May your happy memories bring smiles to all. Take care. Diane Godkin

Hope, Our thoughts are with you and the rest of the family at this difficult time. Ted cut my hair for close to 50 years at various spots around London, Hyde Park, Arva and finally his basement. During that time I had the privilege of hearing many of his stories, was given his book (which I thoroughly enjoyed) and learned life lessons from him. Ted was multitalented with a zest for life and a great understanding of people. You will be missed my friend. RIP Ted Laurie and Sandy Stanton

Hope and extended family. Sending our sympathy to all. Ted was a great guy. Always had a meet and greet kind of smile and was a pleasure to chat with - which we did on occasion at Tim Hortons. Memories last a lifetime so cherish all those great moments to get you through the difficult days. RIP Ted. Rob and Debbie Andrews

Hope & family; There were great conversations and laughter when conversing with Ted. Many a hair cut came with words of wisdom. Thinking of you at this sad time.
