Skip. Skipper. Always there, always reliable. I remember winter camps with Skip in the Crows Nest and tubing down the back hill, Wednesdays at the Drewry gym in Willowdale (he drove from Gravenhurst to play ball hockey and give us boys a 10 minute bible story), and blowing up aerosol cans at campfires with him beside the lake at Beacon. We also road in the back of a pickup down gravel roads around Torrence in Engineers Camp. Hiking up to Silver Peak. Lots of Skip in my early years. He didn’t follow safety protocols, but we didn't mind. He was dedicated to kids and camp and the kingdom of God as he knew it. And yes, he knew how to bake. He is a legend in my mind, and a good one.

Our condolences to Barb and family. "Uncle Ted" was such a servant of the Lord, and had a huge impact into so many lives. Thankful for his life and his example.

Of all the many hats I (we all!) wore at Beacon, being head cook was my favourite. Ted and Barb trained me. Early mornings in the dining room, all quiet, was a special time with our Lord. Ted was in his corner and I was in mine. I really enjoyed those quiet “stop talking, Mary” times with Skip. Our Mom, Audrey Gillam, enjoyed baking week and saw the Lord’s love in action as Ted taught the baking and Barb, you shared your special love and humour.
Well done faithful servant.....

I’ve known Ted for over sixty years now, and most every good thing I know about being a man, a father and a husband arose from the wellspring of this man’s love and his service. He aspired to reflect and represent the Lord, and was a true Man of God.

Ted was truly a man of vision, as well as hard work. By leading the opening up of Beacon in the 1960s and 1970s, he made it possible for me, as a young teacher, to bring hundreds of high school students to Beacon on weekends to be exposed to God's revelation in nature and in scripture. At a school reunion many years later, they all remembered how they had been impacted by their time at Beacon, whether or not they had made a decision to follow Christ. As others have expressed, the impact Beacon has made on thousands of people over the years - and still continues to make - is a great tribute to Ted's foresight. Like the people of 1 Chronicles 12:32, Ted "knew the times and knew what should be done," Like David, Ted "served God in his generation" (Acts 13:36).
