Ted Dwight Angelopoulos
May 5, 1945 - August 7, 2017
It is with great sadness that the family of Ted Angelopoulos announce his passing at home on August 7, 2017 at the age of 72 years.
Ted was born May 5, 1945 in Biggar, Sask., to Ted and Fern Angelopoulos. He attended school in Biggar. Ted was a jack of all trades, he had many jobs in his life, delivered milk, worked on road construction driving a Cat, then later he went into the meat cutting trade which he loved and excelled at. He was known for his home made sausages, pepperoni and beef jerky. He did this for a number of years until due to ill health he could not continue to cut meat. Then he went on to his next favourite job which was working at the Biggar Golf course, which he did for 14 seasons. He loved being out there early every morning cutting grass. Ted was also well known for being up and about early every morning driving around town checking things out, then opening up the Chicken Corral for coffee and then later at Kelly's for coffee with the guys.
Ted was a real cowboy right from an early age. Always rode and loved his horses and met and made many friends when he took up team roping. His passion for golf became a family affair with his wife Jo and his son Cory joining in the fun. Camping and fishing fills many of the family memories with Ted, our gentle giant providing leadership. Even facing down the odd bear in the early morning.
Ted met Jo in 1964 when she was in Biggar as part of her nurses training. Ted married Jo on December 29, 1965 in Nipawin, Sask. They lived in Saskatoon for a short while, spent a year in Leduc, Alta. in 1967 and from then on have resided in Biggar. They lost their first son, Joseph Ted, in 1967 in Leduc. Their second son, Cory, was born in Biggar in 1968 and continues to reside in Biggar as well.
Ted became very ill in 2013, and unfortunately the last few years Ted's health was not good and restricted many of the activities that he had previously enjoyed.
Ted is survived by his loving wife, Josephine (LeJan); son, Cory and his wife Lorie and two grandchildren, Amy and Tanner, that he truly loved and enjoyed; siblings, Marion Ellis, Bill, Jim (Gerri), and Faye (Chuck) Hallberg; as well as numerous nieces and nephews; extended family and friends. He was predeceased by an infant son, Joseph Ted (1967); his parents, Ted and Fern Angelopoulos; and in-laws, Joseph and Marie LeJan; sister and brother-in-law, Yvette and Jim McCrea; and sister-in-law, Eva LeJan; niece, Betty Ann McCrea.
Memorial Services were held from St. Gabriel's Roman Catholic Church, Biggar, Sask. on Friday, August 11, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. with Rev. Father Edward Gibney officiating. Eulogist was given by Chuck Hallberg; Urn Bearer was his son, Cory; Honourary Bearers are all those who shared in Ted's life. Inurnment followed in the Biggar Cemetery.
