A native of Columbia, Ted graduated from Eau Claire High School in 1959 where he was class president, and he graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1964 where he was an outfielder on the Gamecock baseball team.


He worked for many years in the kitchen cabinet industry living in interesting places in the U.S. and travelling many times to foreign countries. Ted and his wife Wynnette shared wonderful, loving experiences with their three children.

Ted was preceded by his daddy and mother, Pat and Jane Fetner and two brothers, Ralph and Michael Fetner with loving memories.


In retirement through The Cooperative Ministry, Ted was a volunteer that helped prepare taxes for many people.
