Teddy was the youngest of three boys, and was just twelve when his father died.  His mother, Talitha, worked as a secretary in the sports department at The University of Michigan.  Before his death, Ted's father worked at the Heusel Bakery on Liberty, founded around 1910 by Ted's German immigrant grandfather.
