Always a southern gentleman, Ted loved a good bloody mary, bow ties, soft shell crabs and a good round of golf. He attended St. Christopher's School and Douglas Freeman High School, where he was a standout athlete, setting several school records in track. Ted treasured his friendships with neighbors and his fellow volunteers at Meals on Wheels and Parham Doctors' Hospital. Above all else, Ted adored his family and was unsurpassed as a father and grandfather. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 9, 2019, at 2 p.m. at Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church, 6000 Grove Ave., Richmond, Va. 23226. A reception will follow at the Brownell home.
