Ted was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and spent his childhood years in Fort Frances, Ontario. Before moving to Whitecourt, Alberta he and his family lived in numerous locations throughout Alberta and British Columbia. Ted met his lifelong love, Virginia, in 1964. They welcomed their only son, Kevin, in 1970. Ted served in the Royal Canadian Navy for 5 years as a Radio Operator on numerous ships including the HMCS Haida. While travelling across Canada as a heavy-duty mechanic, it gave Ted the opportunity to experience the country’s natural beauty. Spending his childhood in northwestern Ontario, Ted developed a strong passion for the great outdoors and water; he loved to swim. Ted had a devoted love for his wife, son, brothers, and sister; family was everything to him. Ted will be lovingly remembered and missed by his wife of 57 years - Virginia Rose (Mudge), son - Kevin Edward Munch (Heather), grandchildren - Sarah, Emma, Alexander, and Samantha; siblings – Joe Munch (Isabelle) and John Munch (Nina).
