My father, Ken Faust was Teds cousin.My Dad had no brothers so we always referred to him as UNCLE TED.Last time I saw him was at my Moms funeral.He had forgotten his hat there and I made arrangements to get it back to him.Once when sking at Snow Peak and I might have been 10yrs. old I got caught in the rope tow.As I was being lifted in the air towards the machine that pulled the rope there was Uncle Ted refuleing the engine and he saw me coming.I trulely believe he saved my life that day. I had spent some time with his son Allen years ago and always thought of the whole family as friends indeed.Uncle Ted was a good man.My condolences to the family.

So sorry to hear about Teds passing. He was a true gentleman and kind person. We always enjoyed time with Ted and Pat. He always made all kinds of wine, so when we stopped up we would sample wine and cheese. Great memories. Our condolences to the family.

Ted was a friend and fellow Ski Patroller with me at Peak n Peak in the early 2000's. We shared our love for skiing and woodworking on many occasions. We left the area in 2004 but our hearts were always with the fine people like Ted and his wife who we enjoys many good times together. Richard and Karen Kime, Artistree- Ashville New York

To Pat, Marcia, and Family,

Annette and I were truly saddened to hear of Ted's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time of adjustment when we lose a loved one such as Ted was to so many. My thoughts of Ted are bigger than life as I remember what a true leader he was over the many years while in the National Ski Patrol System both at the "The Buckaloons" and at "Peek N' Peak Ski Resort". He was an action and no-nonsense man that lived life to the fullest on the slopes and enjoyed our NSPS mission to protect and render first-aid to all those in need. His lasting memory will ever be ingrained in my mind of all the times we free-skied and patrolled down the slopes enjoying whatever lied en-store beyond the next drop or curve. We will always have cherished thoughts of our past times in Ted's company, for he touched many people's lives!

My thoughts and prayers to Aunt Pat and Uncle Teds family. He was our patriarch and now I guess this next generation has to step up. I remember how stern he seemed to me as I was growing up (I think they got that from grandpa Faust) but as I got older I saw a fun loving and silly side (I well remember the first time I was offered some homemade wine, tasted better than what my sister had swiped from Grandpa!). I had forgotten about the plane, I was disappointed I was to young to go up, but he made it up by giving me a ride on his motorcycle (my 1st!). Thank you for the YouTube video on the war experience, it was very well done and showed a side he didn't share. We will miss him
-Love to you all
