PORTLAND - Theodore Raymond "Ted" Howard, 84, of Scarborough, passed away unexpectedly on January 1, 2019, at Maine Medical Center, in Portland. Ted was born in Lewiston, the son of Wallace Ward Howard and Helen ( Pinkham) Howard.

Ted graduated from Deering High School in 1952, joined the U.S. Air Force in 1955, where he served as an aircraft electronics technician and instrument panel instructor.

Upon his Honorable Discharge, Ted worked for Fred L. Tower Company prior to joining Guy Gannett Publishing Company / Portland Press Herald in 1962. Ted was a long time employee of the Circulation Department, retiring in 1991 as a Sales Manager, after 29 years of service. Following his retirement from the newspaper, Ted worked at the Prime Auto Group, in Saco, for an additional 23 years, before retiring for good in 2017.

Ted enjoyed golf throughout his life and played untold rounds at Poland Spring Country Club, amongst many others. He was also an avid fisherman and spent many happy days on the lakes of Maine.

In addition to his parents, Ted was predeceased by five brothers, Robert, Murray, Roland, Warren and Douglas.

He is survived by his longtime partner, Sandra Clark Everett and her three children, along with his two sons, Adam and Craig Howard, both of Portland; his sister, Phyllis Wolstenhulme of Windham; four grandchildren, two step grandchildren; and a total of eight great-grandchildren.

Per his wish, there will be no services. Burial will follow in the spring at Madison Village Cemetery, in Madison, New York.

Ted's family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to the men and women of the Scarborough Police and Fire Departments, along with the excellent staff at Maine Medical Center.
