He drowned in a canoe accident in September of 1980.  Ted and two friends were in a canoe on a large lake when huge waves came up and over turned their canoe before they could reach shore.  Ted, a good swimmer, was helping one of the boys in distress and drowned.  The other two boys barely reached the shore.
