THORN, Edward Charles “Ted”
It is with very heavy hearts, that we announce the peaceful passing of a wonderful husband, father and grandfather, Ted, on Monday, January 8th, 2018, in his 82nd year. Ted will be forever remembered by his best friend and wife of 51 years, Mary. He was the very proud father of David and his wife Claudia, and Cathy (Kish) and her husband Jim. He will also be forever loved by his grandchildren, Alexandra and Owen Thorn, and Charlie and Julia Kish. Ted is also survived by his sister in law, Anna Marie Thorn, his nephew Michael (Sherri) and his son, Sean, and his niece Colleen (Dave) and their sons Tyler and Carson. He is predeceased by his parents, Charlie and Helen and his younger brother Larry (2013). Born in London, ON, Ted graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1958, and earned his designation as a Chartered Accountant in 1964. He worked in Kitchener in his early years, moving to Woodstock in 1974 where he worked for the next almost 40 years, retiring as a partner at BDO. Ted was a tireless and dedicated volunteer, having served on numerous boards. He was longtime treasurer of Woodstock Minor Hockey, Woodstock Figure Skating Club and the Legion Hockey Tournament Committee. He also served on the board for WDDS, The Art Gallery, The Hospital Foundation Board and was chair of the Finance committee for Holy Trinity Catholic Church.
