Date of Birth: April 21, 1943
Date of Death: July 29, 2022
Loving husband, father, brother, uncle and friend passed away on July 29, 2022. He was born to Tom and Eugenia Tabler. In high school, Ted excelled in several sports, but especially in swimming. A coach tried to convince him to train for the Olympics. Instead, he joined the Navy and traveled around in a submarine (no, it was not yellow). After a few tour extensions, he decided to return to land and found himself in Arizona. He was away from the ocean, but ready for new adventures such as camping and hunting. It was here he met the love of his life, Lynda (proposing very soon). He started his telecommunications career with Western Electric, which merged and changed names many times during his 30+ years. His retirement was just in time for grandchildren. He is survived by his wife Lynda, uncle Bob Towt, sisters Nancy Tabler, Barbara Cox (Joe), brother Bob Tabler (Debbie), brother-in-law Russ Bond, children Tracy Ward, Teddy Tabler (Tera) grandchildren, Kayli, Ashli, Madison, Ryan, Zack and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother Don. The measure of a life well lived is by the memories left behind. You left us with many wonderful memories. We love and miss you.
