Theodore (Ted) O. Burgess

Theodore (Ted) O. Burgess passed away at home Monday morning, June 14, 2021. His daughters Marilyn and Kay (with husbands Jack and Tom) had cared for him the last few months because of his desire to pass away at home. Besides, he loved to look out at his flowers on his walkway, patio and front garden window. They brought him such comfort/joy during his illness.
Ted loved the outdoors. He was happiest when with his wife, Eloise, family or friends hiking, fishing, hunting, metal detecting, dredging for gold, searching the hills for wildflowers, reading a western or learning about eastern Washington history.
Ted worked in the orchards for many years, was a mechanic for OK Chevrolet in Brewster, worked for Wagner’s Mill in Twisp, owned and operated an orchard and then retired as an electrician for Puget Sound Naval Shipyards in Bremerton, Washington.
Ted is survived by his two daughters Marilyn Arbogast (Jack) and Kay Loeffler (Tom), 13 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Eloise , and their son, Jack. Also his second wife, Lois Grable Burgess.
We would like to thank hospice workers for their kindness and patience while helping us. A donation to the Pateros Cemetery or Wenatchee Senior Center in Ted’s name would be wonderful.
