To the Lichota Family
I am saddened to learn of Ted's passing. I remember him from our Days at The Prestolite Company in Bay City.
I hired Ted and he was a very dedicated employee and a real gentleman. Whenever I met him in the plant we always exchanged
some brief conversations. He was a quiet man that went about his work with eager enthusiasm and pride.
Because of some medical tests I need to have on Thursday and Friday I will not be able to attend his services. Therefore, please accept
my deepest sympathy during this period of your sadness.
