Theodore “Ted” Williams

Ted Williams, 78, born on January 25, 1940, in Altoona, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully on November 15, 2018, in Pony, Montana, after wrestling with Leukemia. For those of you privileged to meet Ted, you knew him as a no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is kind of guy.  Like it or not, you always knew where you stood with Ted.

Ted served in the Marine Corps from 1958 to 1961. After leaving the Marine Corps, he went on to a career at UPS in Pennsylvania. Ted had an opportunity to take early retirement from UPS and moved to Montana over 20 years ago. He had an affinity for horses, dogs, hunting, and fly-fishing. This led him to work for various guest ranches, outfitters, and packers. Ted worked for Montana Horses wrangling horses and dudes and was an integral part of their annual horse drive. He went on to become a brand inspector for Madison County, Montana. Ted loved the ranching life and immersed himself in black Angus seed stock breeding. His friends in the ranching community were important to him. Ted was also a staunch Republican, actively involved in promoting and supporting conservative politics.

Ted is survived by his brother, Daryl (Ruth) Williams; nephew, Scott (Cheryl) Williams; nephew, Mark Williams; niece, Heidi Snyder; and three grand-nephews. He also leaves behind his dog, Tess.

Friends and family can pay their respects and swap stories about Ted at a memorial on Sunday, November 25, 2018 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Sitz Angus Ranch, 37 Sitz Lane, Harrison, Montana, 59735.
