CAMBRIDGE, Neb. — Ted D. Hosick, 79,

passed away peacefully Monday, June 12, 2017,

surrounded by his loved ones

in the home he built in Cambridge.

He was born in Moorefield, Neb. on March 30, 1938,

to Vance and Wanda (Stinnette)

and graduated from the University

their 60th wedding anniversary this August.

After high school graduation, Ted and his father

John Deere Implement, in Curtis. In 1961, Ted

enlisted in the US Army and was stationed in Anchorage,

Alaska. Ted received an Honorable Discharged

information specialist, which lead to employment

by the IBM Corporation in Denver, Colo. In 1973,

Ted and Mary Lou returned to Nebraska to start

a family hardware business in Cambridge. They

owned and operated the Gamble’s Hardware and

later Coast to Coast Store. After closing this business,

I was saddened to hear Ted passed away....I was unaware of his illness until I went back to Cambridge for Bernard Wickizer's funeral and Shirley told me that Ted wasn't well. I had looked for him at Bernard's service and asked Shirley about him since he wasn't helping. Ted was so nice to me when my parents passed away...he was helping with the services and it meant a lot to me that someone was looking out for me during the whole unpleasant ordeals. I am so sorry for your loss...please accept my sincere sympathy and prayers.

We will miss Uncle Ted's sense of humor. We always enjoyed teasing him about the tool box. Mike still has the tool box and he will treasure it forever. Love to all of you guys.
