Ted Harrison

January 2, 1940 - June 10, 2022


In His Own Words …

“I have always been an active, independent, caring individual and have lived a full, privileged, purposeful life blessed by family, friends and opportunities to pursue ever-arising interests. Tennis, squash, sailing, kayaking, long distance cycling, gardening and farming have been major pursuits in my life in addition to my rewarding career in the civil service. As my health challenges grew over the past decade, I continued to enjoy community volunteering, bridge, reading, crossword puzzles and an active social life. My beloved wife, Susan (Evans), and my two wonderful children, Marybeth and Mark, are the most valued relationships I have ever enjoyed. I love them dearly. They have given my life purpose and meaning. Friends and other family have played important roles as well. In recent years my health has continued to decline and my experience has become one of chronic pain, diminishing physical and mental capacity, and loss of independence. As a result, the time has come to leave relationships behind and enter the final stage of life. I do not fear death nor regard it as an enemy. Rather, I see it as a normal part of existence and in my case, a friend.”

Thank you to our community of family and friends for your kindness and support, and thank you to MAID for giving Ted the opportunity to die on his own terms, surrounded by loved ones.
