He loved the Lord Jesus Christ. He was a man of few words but loved to joke and play with others. He was always quietly in the background willing to do anything to help others. He was a tough oil field hand but anyone who really knew him, knew that all he ever wanted was to love his wife and family with all his heart. He would do anything in his power to make his Wife and children happy. Ted was the oldest of 2. Born on August 24, 1933, in Eliasville, Texas to proud parents Frank and Fanny Vickers.
