Theodore "Ted" Alfred La Mothe left this life on May 6, 2017 with Dennis and Susan helping him on this journey. He is survived by son Dennis (Susan), grandson Jon (Kathryn) and their sons Carter and Lucas, and grandson Jeremy (Melissa) and their son Weston. Ted was a loving father and grandfather who adored his family, enjoyed facetime with all, photos, and hearing of their travels. Ted always said that he could never have better replacements than his grandsons and great grandsons. Ted is now on another journey with his wife Ann whom he missed terribly. Ted said not to shed tears for him, but tears will be shed. The family wants to thank staff at West St. Paul Allina Clinic and hospice nurses , United Hospital and the caring staff at Southview Acres. All gave him excellent care. Dennis and Susan want to thank Rick and Sybil La Mothe and Roline Bravo for their ongoing support for Ted.
