Theodore "Ted" Davis, age 88, a resident of Albuquerque, NM since 1969, passed away Thursday, March 29, 2018. Ted was born in La Crosse, WI on March 23, 1930. He was a proud Veteran of the United States Marine Corps and honorably served his country during the Korean War. He married the love of his life Roberta in 1955. Ted retired in 1997 after serving 51 years in the electrical wholesaling and light fixture fields.

Ted is survived by his loving children, Ronald Lee Davis of Tome, NM and Sharon Elaine Gill and husband Gary of Albuquerque, NM; his precious grandsons, Jacob and Brandon Gill of Albuquerque; his brother, Jerry Davis; and many friends. Ted will be greatly missed by his loving family and by those whose lives he touched.
