Ted Azkoul, of East Grand Rapids, born on November 3, 1934, was relieved of his earthly pain and illness on Sunday, July 26, 2020, and received healing and peace from our Lord Jesus Christ. Ted’s life was marked by an unceasing quest for knowledge, adventure, and selfless service. His love for family and friends was unconditional, and his unselfish regard was felt by many. The crowning example centered on a life-long care for his dear mother, Marie. Ted’s father, Mike, and his darling sister, Diane, predeceased Ted. Through it all, Ted’s Christian Orthodox faith sustained his long life. Despite sickness in his youth, Ted attained a superior level of physical conditioning and fitness; Ted excelled in sports. He remained an inspiration to everyone fortunate enough to be in his circle of family, friends, and admirers. Survivors include his brother, Rev. Michael Azkoul; nephew, Paul (Kathleen) and families; niece, Diane (Rich) Sieckmann and families; Robert (Bonnie) Azkoul and families; Mrs. Bernice Azkoul and families. “Teddy” will be missed, but his memory will be ETERNAL.
