Theodore "Ted" A. Bartel was born on October 4, 1937, in Raymond, Minnesota, the son of Theodore H. and Hertha A. (Haase) Bartel. He grew up in the Raymond and Kandiyohi communities, graduated from Willmar High School in 1955, and served in the Minnesota National Guard for 8 years.

He was employed as a roofer for many years at Knigge Roofing and later was employed as a bookkeeper for Rutledge Roofing in Murdock and then at Reigstad Roofing in Willmar, retiring in about 2002. Ted was a longtime and active member of Redeemer Lutheran Church. He enjoyed playing card games, puzzles, reading western books, gardening and being outdoors, especially deer and pheasant hunting and ice fishing. Ted will be remembered for being a gentle and compassionate man, having a good sense of humor, a wonderful husband, father and grandfather and a faithful servant of the Lord.
