    Ted Williams was one of the most “colorful” people I ever met. He was in charge of the plant where I was hired in 1977.
    Ted could have been another Jerry Clower. He just had a way of saying things that made you laugh. I was telling my wife a few things he told me many years ago and it still makes me laugh.
    Prayers for the family.
    Ted will be missed.
