Sorry to hear of Ted’s passing. He was a great guy and good friend. My Condolences to his family.
Ted-Ted I can hear you cusing us out on the bus to this day. And that yard stick hurt on the bare leg. But we loved you the way you were. And that loud voice didn’t scare us we just laughed. TED you were the coolest old fart I knew. #1 BUS DRIVER🙏💗🍺Kids thanks for sharing your dad with us.
Growing up, Ted was my role model…and still is. He was a great man and a great boss. I am fortunate for having known him.
Condolences to the Allmaras family. Ted was a good friend of my dad and grampa, who held him in the highest regard. I remember going to Ted’s baseball HOF induction in ’86… my dad thought so much of Ted and wanted to celebrate that moment with him. Thoughts and prayers to each of you, and best wishes in celebrating a life well-lived.
What a diverse & involved life he led. I enjoyed learning more about him as I knew him through church mostly. I remember Ted as a considerate & helpful person. You have my sympathies for your loss.
Condolences to the Allmaras family. Ted was a great man and fun to be around. I have fond memories of the years of bowling with Ted. Ted was always willing to help those in need. RIP Ted
I remember Ted from back in the early 1950- 1951 Bremen Baseball team, he was a great player. We have video of those years. My dad owned the Bremen Bar so there was always refreshments after the games. I am sorry of his passing. God bless the memory of Ted Allmaras.
My deepest sympathy to the Allmaras family. My thoughts and prayers for all of you.
My favorite memory of Ted is him walking by my house and cussing me out about how my yard looked. I’d come back about his ND jacket and he’d mutter and keep walking. Then the time he chewed out Darren when he was driving truck for Linus. It was always fun BS’ing with Ted, he called it the way it was. He was a good man, sorry for your loss Allmaras family.
Lonnie Berndt – I was one of the youngest kids and never got to see my dad play baseball. I would love if you could send me some of those videos so I could share them with the family. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my address is 5969 19th St NE New Rockford, ND 58356. Thank you for your kind words!
Sad to hear of Ted’s passing. I played on the Bremen baseball team from about 1965 to 1971. Ted was our Coach and he was the best coach I’ve ever had. Very good memories!!
My sympathy to your family. Ted was a great guy and will be remembered by many for years to come. He always had a story to share about times spent with Bob and his Dad. He was so proud of his family.
My heart aches for all of you! Garth you were an awesome teacher & classmate, The one time I road Ted’s bus, I learned some very colorful language. Are you sure Ted wasn’t a sailor? He will be missed by many. R.I.P Ted
My deepest condolences to all of Ted’s family. I’ve wonderful memories of Ted. Growing up Ted sat behind us in church with the kids. If you would turn around Ted had this prayer book that he would bop you over the head. To this day during the sign of peace every time I go to turn around to shake hands I have this vision of someone going to hit me over the head. Ted was my confirmation teacher. Learned a lot from him. When I was getting married and asked Garth to sing at our wedding Ted said why would you want him to sing. After the wedding I told Ted that is why Garth sang at our wedding he has a beautiful voice. Ted shook his head and walked away. Ted was a gem and will be missed when I come back home to visit. Sending hugs to all of you.
