Drew TedDREW, Ted (Edwin Ross Jr)   -  May 25, 1949 – October 22, 2022 

Dad left us peacefully, after a long illness, at the age of 73.

A magnetic, warm personality, Ted brought life to every room, treating everyone with genuine care, interest, and his characteristic humour.

First in his heart is his wife of 46 years, Gisèle (née Ménard).

Ted and Gisèle raised 3 children in their love-filled home: Joe (Lisa), Kathleen, and Emily Blake (Rob).

Ecstatic to become a grandfather to Emily and Rob's children Landen and Ryan, Ted was in his element as Papa, playing and laughing, caring and loving.

His love of the outdoors was displayed in his constant presence on the front porch of the house he raised his family in, a house filled with so much love he built an extension to fit it all in.

Ted was mighty in presence, if not stature. Raised by the late Ross (Edwin Ross Sr) and Marion Drew (née Whittaker) on Lasalle Court with his siblings Brian (Sue), Alan, Liz Hance (Mike), and predeceased by John, Ted became known as Uncle Tiger Monster to his many nieces and nephews.

A French teacher for more than 30 years, Ted's classrooms were recognized as joyful and enlightening by all of Donevan and O'Neill's students; even those who hated the subject raved about Monsieur Drew. His zeal for teaching extended beyond the classroom, building leaders in Student Council and crafting campers in the Outers Club.

Ted's craftsmanship also extended to woodworking, and the wood furniture (Tedrewood) he built for his loved ones, often with his father-in-law Leo, is displayed and used with pride to this day. 

Relatives and friends are invited to attend at McINTOSH-ANDERSON-KELLAM FUNERAL HOME LTD., 152 King St. E., Oshawa (905-433-5558) on Thursday, November 3, 2022 from 2-4 p.m., with a private family service to be held at a later date. 

In lieu of flowers, donations to Lakeridge Health Foundation; Cancer Care or Hearth Place, would be appreciated.  Online condolences may be shared at makfuneralhome.com .
