Ted Eriksson passed away peacefully at his daughter, Mary's home on July 5, 2013. He was greeted on the other side by his wife, parents, brother and sister. Ted was born on September 23, 1939 to Mary Hadfield and Erik Eriksson in Clearfield, Utah. Ted contracted polio when he was twelve years old and proved he was a fighter as he lived a full life despite being crippled for the remainder of his time on earth. Ted graduated from Davis High School and went on to work on the burr bench at Marquardt in Ogden. He married Nina Kay Cady on February 27, 1960 in Ogden, Utah. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on February 27, 1968. Ted and Kay worked hard together to make a good life through the good and the bad. He dearly missed her after she passed away.

After Marquardt was closed down Ted went to work at Williams International as a finish foreman. He retired from there in 2005. Ted was a hard worker and his motto was "if a job was worth doing – it was worth doing right." He cared about the people he worked with and made many good friends, even though his exterior was a bit rough around the edges.

Ted is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was an influence for good in his calling as a home teacher, executive secretary, and in the multiple sports programs that he served in. Even though he never could play the games, he spent hours coaching, keeping score, and scheduling basketball and baseball games. At one time Ted was a member of the Staggs Racing Club. He was a mechanic at heart and loved drag racing in Salt Lake and Las Vegas with his car club.

Ted was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, George Eriksson, and a baby sister, June Eriksson, and his wife Kay Eriksson. He is survived by his children Julie (Scot) Allgood, Erik (Caryl) Eriksson, and Mary (Mark) Montgomery, and seven grandchildren, sister-in-laws Elaine (Bud) Haizlip, and Raylene Eriksson, and several nieces and nephew and their families. Ted loved his grandchildren fiercely and expected the best from them. He will be remembered for his gruff exterior and his big heart by them. Special thanks go to his grandchildren Erika, KayDee, Tash and Travis for their tender care during his final years.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday, July 10, 2013 at 11 a.m. at Lindquist's Layton Mortuary, 1867 No. Fairfield Road. Friends may visit family Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. and Wednesday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the mortuary. Interment, Syracuse City Cemetery.
