Ted Roy Lister, age 60, of Kamloops B.C. passed away unexpectedly on July 23, 2018. Ted is survived by his parents; Bev and Barry Lister of Kamloops; his brothers, Gary of Cultus Lake, and (adopted brother) Terry of Airdrie Alberta, his nieces and nephew Mallory, Alexa and Evan, and all their children. He is preceded in death by his brother Ken, of Kamloops.
Ted was born on November 16, 1957, in Kamloops and attended Kamloops Senior Secondary School. Ted was active in sports and played football, baseball and was an avid skier; starting skiing at age 5. Ted never married but doted on his nieces and nephew and all their children.
Ted had many friends in Kamloops as he had lived there all his life. After high school, Ted took up golf, and it became his passion in life. His family and friends will always remember him hitting the links whenever he got the chance. In the last few years, Ted was a member at Mt. Paul Golf Course where he played golf almost every day. He considered it his second home, and he had many friends there whom he enjoyed playing a round of golf with.
Ted could be gruff on some occasions, but that was just a front as he was just a lovable “Teddy” bear of a man. Family and friends will remember Ted as a kind, and generous man who did not hesitate to stop and offer his help to anyone who was in need. He would give you the shirt off his back, and he did.
At his request, Ted asked that there be no formal service but that his family and friends stop, share a story, a smile and pass his generosity forward.
