Ted Wise August 12 1920 - January 25, 2015
Three years ago, also in January, we got a call that my Mom had a heart attach and later that day died. Sunday morning, the 25th, Kristi called and said our Dad had passed away during the night after being sick for only a few days. He had a long life as a wonderful father and grandfather and was luckily to be able to see a new generation of the family with the birth of his great grand daughters, Amber and Kayla. He graduated from Fresno State and was set to attend graduate school when the war started and he enlisted for duty in the Army. After the war he met my Mom when she was on a vacation from her home in Pennsylvania. and they were married and had a long wonderful marriage. The last few years were hard with health issues but their love was strong and they set a good example for Kristi and I. He was a good family man and I don't think i ever hear him say anything bad about anyone. Back when I was in college we often had discussions on the war and other issues and though we often disagreed Dad always had intelligent things to say. Joe also looks back on the days when they had some great conversations about issues of the or life in general. He will be missed by all.
