Ted Illman, 83, of Mitchell passed away suddenly at his home on Tuesday, July 25, 2017.
A history together full of shared memories with his loving wife Ellen that kept them close for 59 years. He farmed the family homestead in Logan Township until he retired to Mitchell in 2003.

A fan of all sports, he especially enjoyed playing, coaching and refereeing hockey and the many hunting trips with family and friends. Ted also enjoyed the coffee shop, playing cards, volunteering at the West Perth Memorial Forest and spending time with his grandchildren.
