Mr Carey

Hi to all the Carey family-

Sorry I was only able to speak with Sandra and Tara and little Adriana at the funeral. I had to leave for another engagement at noon that day.

I have so many great memories of all the 'gang'...I had each one of the four Carey children, in their turns in Senior Kindergarten.

I'm sure you will all miss him terribly. What great memories Mark has set up on this web site. Great job!

Take care and be MUST stop this terrible disease...I just lost my niece a year ago at age 41. It hurts.

Nora Jones and family...

Dear Jackie and Children, Mrs Jones alerted me to MrCarey's passing. Please accept my sincere condolences. I remember when I taught Frank and also Sandra Mr. Carey would come and sit quietly at interview time but you always could feel a sense of how proud he was of his children. I know he will be greatly missed. Yours sincerly Rita Cornell

Thoughts from Jean and Derek

Dear Jackie, Mark, Tara, Frank and Sandra,

Our heartfelt sympathy to you all. Even though we knew that Ted didn't have very long to live, it still came as a bit of a shock that the end came so quickly.

He fought a long and courageous battle with his cancer. He alone knew the pain of his suffering.,which he bore with quiet dignity.

We know that this a very sad time for you all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you . it was a blessing that you were given the time to be with him , in his last few days.

We were so pleased that we went over to Canada last year and that Ted was able to join us all on many of our family outings. We had hoped that he and you Jackie, would have been able to visit us this year here in England , but it wasn't to be.

We would ask him how he was feeling , when we were over with you both,and he would usually reply ,in his quiet way, "not so good to-day".

It was evident to us , how much he loved and cared about his family,and his delight in his grandchild Adrianna.

We weren't at the funeral, but were with you in spirit .

Much Love to you All. Jean and Derek

Sincerest condolences

Dear Carey family ...

It is with great sadness to hear a good man has left this world. Fifteen years ago, I've had the opportunity to work with Ted at deHavilland. As a young grad at that time, Ted has always been helpful when I come to him for advice. May God eases your pain, knowing he has lived a good life, and is missed by many.

From the time I started working with Ted at Dehavilland ,he was so helpful to me and was willing to spend the time to show me ,what and how to do the particular job. If at anytime i had any questions
he would spend the time to try and answer them. He trusted me to do my job.When a new job or piece of equipment came in, he would take the time to show how to use it properley. He would be the same with anyone who came to him for help,he was that sort of man.When i had problems,like, when my mother died he would spend time to comfort me.If he had any problems he would come to me ,i would be there for him as he would for me. He will always be part of my life. And now may you be at rest ,God bless you Ted.

Dear Carey Family,
It is with great sadness that I received the news of Ted,s passing.
I have known Ted for a long time and when I first came to deHavilland in 1981 I was assigned to a group in the Design office where some employees basically had an afternoon nap ( unofficial). I met Ted and in his laid back way told me that I should move my tee square, and such, as quietly as possible in case I give someone a heart attack. We also discussed how they seemed to snore in unison.
I have only nice things to think about when disussing Ted with a lot of our old colleagues here at Goodrich.
Ted you have a good rest. You deserve that and we can maybe swap some good stories next time we meet.
God bless and keep you,

We could all only hope to be the kind and loving person Ted was. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

"Where's My Teddy"

"Where's My Teddy"
This was how I used to get T.Bear's attention in the Print Room at DeHavilland, Ted was "The" fountain of knowledge we all turned to, he knew where everything was amongst the millions of drawing and aperture cards under his control. looking back to those years they where truly some of the best times of my life, hard work and lots of laughter rang through the department. Ted was my first Boss and friend in Canada, I could not have asked for a more warm and wonderful welcome to my new country, it is all due to Ted's caring and gentle way that I made Dehavilland my career and Canada my home. Good night and God Bless Teddy.

A Quality Gentleman

I first met Ted Carey when I was assigned to work on a new Imaging System software for the Engineering Department at De Havilland. Ted had an extensive knowledge of and interest in the quality of data, documents and software systems. I would always consult with Ted about the above topics and many of his concepts / ideas were incorporated in the software that we still use today. On January 2006, this software was expanded from Engineering and made available directly to our aircraft customers. The quality person in Ted Carey made this possible.

Ted was always a gentleman and he truly cared about his staff. I was really fortunate to have worked for Ted.

My sympathy in your time of sorrow

Ted Carey was a good person, who helped me when I needed his expert nowledge at work. When I had the chance to know him better I realized what a nice person he was.On some of the occaisions we would symply chat about this and that. To this day I miss the comradeship of Ted and others like him who's friendship eased some of the stress of the job. Ted was as good as his word, if he said that a job would be done, one could
be sure that it would be. In the beyond we will meet again .

I was truly sorry to hear of Ted's passing. I had the opportunity to work with him on many IT projects at DH/Bombardier over the years. I always enjoyed his relaxed, gentle attitude, smiling face and particularly his subtle sense of humour.
He will really be missed.

Our thoughts are with you in your time of sorrow. With Our Deepest Sympathy,
Tory Orzeck

My best and deepest condolences to Tpa. Real and natural man. Great and honorable family. "There are men who fight one day and are good.
There are men who fight one year and are better.
There are some who fight many years and they are better still.
But there are some that fight their whole lives,
these are the ones that are indispensable."
Bertolt Brecht

Siempre te recordare Ted. La paz este contigo.

A neighbour

I have known Ted for almost 20 years now. I was a young man , a Scouter in Training and he was the Akeka of 1st B Bramalea Cub pack. I learned alot for Ted, his soft spoken ways his love of kids and making life fun for kids. as often happens we move on in life and I stayed in Scouting and tried to take some of the things he showed me with me. As a neighbour I would meet him on his walks with Mulder and we would chat we would not chat about okd time or DeHaviland where both he and my Dad worked but we would talk about the things that mattered most to him... His family I would get updates on everybody and how they were doing. And then came Adriana if there was a mor proud Granddad I never knew one...
I will Miss Ted and our chats I will miss seeing the pride and love when he spoke of his kids and I will miss the smile that ALWAYS came accross his face when Adriana's name came up... If there are things we should take from Ted's life it is that... To even in a quiet way show people how much your family means to you and be proud of them....

Dear Jackie, Mark, Tara, Frank and Sandra,
How saddened we were to hear news of Ted's passing at 5:00 mass at St. Anthony's yesterday. What fond memories we have in recent years of having you join us for mass--even when Ted was clearly so ill, he never missed!! The girls were always delighted with your effusive praise of their singing and were touched by your on-going presence. It just seems yesterday that we were raising our very young children together and enjoying day-trips to pass those long summer days. What a beautiful family you and Ted have raised Jackie...a wonderful legacy!! Adriana is the crowning glory, and how we loved to watch Ted with her. Our love and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. We hope that the memories and the love of friends and family will sustain you. Please know how very much we care. Thank you so much for this awesome tribute--electronic version--thanks to Mark, Tara and others for the wonderful sharing. We feel we have been drawn into your loving circle. May God Bless you all!
Wendy, Steve, Nancy, Ginny and Michael Bodsworth, Brampton, Ontario
