Ted (Teddy) Maier of Willis, Texas, died on Friday, August 7, 2020 at Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center due to heart failure. Ted was a design and sales consultant for All Aquatic & Kids Playground.
He was born in Crawfordsville, Indiana on October 10, 1963. His mother Brenda and father Ted Jr. got him involved in football at a young age. Some of his fondest memories were playing football throughout his childhood. Ted went on to attend Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, class of 1986. He majored in Psychology and while he never was a psychologist, he certainly used it on his friends and family. It was at Southwestern where he met his lifelong friends in the KA fraternity, and his college sweetheart Susan Stevens. His time in the fraternity shaped his life, and were truly among his best memories.
After graduating college, he met his future wife and mother of his children Margo Maier (D. 2003). Their three children were all born in different cities, his eldest Asher (Houston), middle child Micah (Toronto, Canada), and his youngest Grace (Detroit). This is a direct reflection of his dedication and hard work to support his family. He had such a knack for sales that many promotions and sales achievements led him all across the eastern United States and Canada. He was truly beloved by all the individuals he worked with and for over the years.
In 2009, Ted’s children moved to live with him in The Woodlands, Texas from living with their mother in Ontario, Canada. This was a great opportunity for his children to get close to him in what would turn out to be his final years. In The Woodlands, he supported them through high school and saw his eldest son Asher graduate college. He was able to rekindle his love for football with his son Micah and was a swim dad with his daughter Grace, who competed for many years. Ted also loved golfing with his sons and played his last round with Asher and Micah on Father’s Day 2019.
Ted was happiest when he was surrounded by friends and family keeping them entertained. His humor and quick wit were legend among his circle of friends and family. To know Ted, was to know a bright light in a dark room. He was a loving and generous man.
Ted is survived by the mother of his children Margo; his fiancée, Susan; his three children: Asher, Micah and Grace; his mother Brenda and stepfather David; his brothers: Garth and Greg, and his six nieces and nephews.
Ted was a baptized Christadelphian, a faith that he held very close. He firmly believed in the kingdom of God and is awaiting the call of his master.
