After a short illness, Ted Code passed away peacefully on July 17, 2021 at age 77 years, leaving behind his wife of 50 years, Judi, daughter Tracey (Steve), son Curtis (Denyse) and grandchildren Blake, Kendra, Tevin, and Trystjan.
Ted grew up in the Croll area with his parents and 2 sisters, Liz and Carolyn, attending a little one room school called Primrose, then Fairfax school and finally Elgin High School before beginning his career with MB Hydro. It was in school that he formed his lifelong bond with friends Jimmy and Murray.
Ted moved to Gladstone with Manitoba Hydro in 1969. He married Judi Sadler in July 1971 and bought a home in Gladstone, nine years later they built their current home.
Over the years with Manitoba Hydro Ted worked in many towns until he was encouraged to pick a permanent placement. He developed many friendships and after 37 years, he retired (almost 22 years ago).
Ted was community minded; he coached kids hockey and baseball, volunteered on the fire department, was Charter President of the local Kinsman club, and served as Chair of the local Ducks Unlimited Chapter. He loved to play baseball and travelled to play with many teams over the years. He also curled for a number of years and participated in a number of bonspiels.
Ted always loved the seasons, even more so in retirement. Each year started off with winter holidays, then ice fishing season, turkey hunting season, fishing and garden season, goose hunting season, deer season, pheasant season, and holiday season again.
Hunting and fishing took him up to Alaska, through the US, all over Canada, then down to Mexico. Hunting and fishing friends were spread wide--coming to visit from all over and he in turn visiting them. The love of hunting was passed on to grandchildren and he encouraged participation at an early age. This past spring he enjoyed a successful turkey hunt with 2 grandchildren.
In spare time, there was lots of ball, hockey, ringette, and triathlon events to watch as his 4 grandkids competed.
Although he left earlier anyone would have liked, Ted lived well, laughed often, and had the respect and love of his friends and family.
