Ted was born May 7, 1925, to Albert Wickenden and Maude Emmett Wickenden in Cairo, Egypt. He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Olive May Wickenden.
Ted grew up in England during WWII and married Olive in 1947. He worked in London, Portugal, Montreal and Winnipeg, Canada before the opportunity arose to move to Roswell to assist in the setup of the Transportation Manufacturing Corporation. He worked there from 1974 until 1996 as a vice president and then consultant. In his spare time, he loved to play golf, garden, tinker, and re-engineer various things at the family home.
He is survived by his children: Howard Wickenden and his wife, Susan, of Houston, TX, and Susan Goldstrom and her husband, Barry, of Roswell, NM; his grandchildren: Travis and his wife, Ashlee, of Lubbock, Texas, and Ryan and his wife, Nydia, of Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland. He also is survived by three great-grandchildren: Ava, Jason and Aislinn; and his favorite companion, Emma, his miniature schnauzer.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff of Gentiva Hospice and Heartfelt Manor.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Roswell Humane Society in his name.
