Nelmes Edgar Norman (Ted), born June 3, 1933 in Chilliwack. Died peacefully October 14, 2007 at Chilliwack General Hospital after a long struggle with cancer. He was predeceased by his first wife of 45 years, Sylvia; son, Ted Jr; and his second wife, Devina, of seven years.

Ted was born in Chilliwack, BC to a family that pioneered the area in the 1860’s and 70’s in which the family played a leading role in the development of the community. His happiest memories during this period were of the many friends and relatives that were part of his life.

He enjoyed a long career in the BC Pulp and Paper Industry before embarking on a 20-plus-year adventure as an international consultant in the paper industry. Upon retirement, he chose to return to the community of his birth, his roots and his happiest memories.

He will be remembered fondly by the many friends he made throughout his life.

Thank you to all who helped our father.
