I had so much respect for Ted. Growing up in East Freedom and going to school with Eric, the summer recreation program was the highlight of my every summer day. Ted instilled fun and good sportsmanship into each activity we were involved in. I learned so much about my favorite sport - baseball from him. He would always take time to correct a mistake or alter a swing to make you better. I will always remember him saying “you just hit my best slider”. Ted is one of the fine gentlemen who influenced me to become a teacher and coach. May God bless his family. Praying for each of you at this time.

I was a 1985 graduate of CKHS and I had Mr. Delozier for several of my biology/ science classes. He was such a great teacher and he really sparked my interest in science. With his encouragement, I completed an RN program after graduation and since then I have become a nurse Practitioner. Currently, I teach nurse Practitioner students at Penn State in addition to maintaining a clinical role in the ICU at Hershey Medical. Center. Because of Mr. Delozier’s instruction and support, I have been able to touch the lives of many during their most vulnerable time. Rest In Peace.

Coach Ted was my life hero. He was someone who I always wished I could emulate. I taught school for 34 years and was head football and baseball coach for over 30 years. I think of him often and he will always be a part of me. Phil Glass class of 69.
