Vanderlaan TheodoreVANDERLAAN, Theodore (Ted) Sebastian Vanderlann   -  MARCH 25, 1955 – NOVEMBER 1, 2022

Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 1 at the age of 67, surrounded by his family.

He was the beloved husband of Ruth for nearly 40 years.

He was exceptionally proud of his children, Joseph (Laree) and Anna (Luke), who will miss him deeply. He will be lovingly remembered by his brother Rob (Vera) and his many nieces and nephews. 

Ted was born in Oshawa, Ontario and learned the value of hard work from an early age from his parents Sebastian and Anna.


He was a proud alumnus of Queen’s University where he earned an MBA before embarking on a successful 37-year career in the banking industry. Throughout his career, Ted earned the deep respect of colleagues and clients. 

Of the many places where Ted travelled in his life, his cottage on Pencil Lake was his favourite.

He will be remembered there in each sunset over the water. 

Ted had a gift for keeping in touch with relatives and friends overseas. His loss will be keenly felt by his family and the great many friends around the world who will miss his bear hugs. 

Visitation will take place at the OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME, 847 King St. W. Oshawa (905-721-1234) on Thursday, November 10 from 5 - 8 PM.

A funeral will be held at Holy Family Catholic Church, 91 Ribblesdale Dr, Whitby on Friday, November 11 at 10:30 AM, followed by a reception.
