Mr. Ted J.E. Wilson February 12, 1918 - November 3, 2008 - Captain (Ted) J.E. Wilson In loving memory of our loving father and mentor. Predeceased by brother Douglas, grandson Brent Daniel, age 16, and granddaughter Sabrena Jacqueline, age 35. Survived by his loving wife of 68 years, Eunice, sons Daniel (Glennis) and Ted (Joslyn), and their children, Blake (Rachel), Bruce (Su) and Ted Jr. (Angelita), all of whom continue the Wilson Family name. Great grandchildren Isaac, Ruby Rose, Grace Sabrena, Ezra and Taylor further Ted’s family for another generation. Captain Ted will be fondly and respectfully remembered by his many shipmates and employees whom he has introduced to the Marine Industry during his 50+ years of West Coast Maritime involvement. Hundreds of Sea Cadets will remember him as bandmaster of R.C.S.C.C. Lonsdale, and the years of award winning performances as a Sea Cadet marching band. Captain Ted was able to acquire and establish an operating fund for the 90’ Tug M.V. Straits Cadet for the R.C. Navy League to enable cadet training to be done on a large vessel. He used many of his commercial contacts and his reputation to see this cadet dream became a reality. Thousands of readers have read of Captain Ted’s life in his biography, "Full Line, Full Away: A Towboat Master’s Story." After retiring from Seaspan as Port Captain, Ted and Eunice spent many happy years cruising the BC Coast on their M.V. Seapet, introducing their grandchildren to the wonders of boating in BC. No Service at Ted and Eunice’s request. Ted’s ashes will be scatted at sea according to his wishes.
