It was a personal pleasure to have known Ted. JeanAnn and I wish to extend our sincere condolences to the entire family. Ted was a kind and gentle man who I am sure will be missed by many in the Topeka area and beyond.

Ted and I did not do much together but did enjoy each others company in helping the North Topeka Senior Center with their annual sale. He was always available to help. At every social occasion that I saw Ted I would seek him out for some friendly conversation. He always had that smile on his face and rare as it is spoke with a smile on his face with bubbling enthusiasm. He was a joy to be with. I think he was like me in that he enjoyed every thing that he did and probably never complained. He liked to be busy and looked for things to do to better this world. I have fond memories of Ted and will never forget him. He was a gem. You chose well Sara.

Sara, Amy, Martin, and grandchildren, and all who loved Ted,
As Alpha Phi sisters, Sara, and Amy, sending my love to all of you. I have enjoyed many visits with all of you when visiting Topeka over the years. I will miss seeing Ted, and so saddened by his passing. He was such a delight to talk to, so positive, funny, and empathic. He was one of a kind, and proud to call him my friend. I admired his tenacity, and his devotion to his family. I thank him for serving his country and all of us, and his bravery facing cancer; never complaining and taking things in stride. He taught all of us to be humble, and accept what cannot be changed, and live life to the fullest. You taught us all how to be a better person, Ted. I know you will continue to watch over your family, as you gave them the wonderful gift of your love; as a loving husband to Sara for 53 years, and an outstanding role model to your beloved children and grandchildren to cherish forever. God bless all of you.

Sara, Amy and Martin -
I was saddened to hear of Ted's passing. Ted was my boss at FHLB in the "NOW" Department. I totally enjoyed working with him. When we were in the SBG building, I remember him answering the main phone while doing the daily crossword puzzle from the newspaper. Other fond memories of him is when he ran with Mark and Warren after work and chauffeuring the Board members. Ted was always willing to help in any aspect. He talked fondly of his wife, kids and grandchildren. Ted will be greatly missed by all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
~ Dawn Harris - January 19, 2018
I only got to know Ted in his later years as he was filling in at the reception desk at FHLB Topeka. He always had a greeting and a story for you. What amazed me about Ted was the incredibly positive attitude that he exhibited even after his cancer diagnosis and into his final days. I know he was a man of many accomplishments and had many friends and a wonderful family. I met his wife Sara when I visited Ted at his home after he had been told he had only a very short time to live. I could see what a special love they shared and I can only believe that it was that deep love and support that allowed him to defy all odds and live for several months, even seeming to exhibit improvement in his health until the last several days of his life. He will be missed much and made a difference...I don't know that there is much more we can ask for in this world. May he rest in heavenly peace!!!!

Dear Sara, Amy, and Martin,
Not enough words to express the sadness of Ted’s passing. Ted WAS a trooper through his illness. I loved coming over and chatting with Ted and Sara. Ted was right in on every conversation. We laughed so hard when Ted would reminisce about memories in the past! He unselfishly helped sooo many people. One memory, helping Mary W. move not once, not twice, not three times, but four times! (We would all laugh because Teddy knew her furniture and belongings better than the rest of us:)
There are sooo many wonderful and fond memories of your beloved husband and Dad. Ted will be greatly missed but we all know, he fought the fight with such dignity and grace.
With much love,
~ Julie Friedstrom - January 17, 2018
I was so sorry to hear of Ted's passing . It's been a while since I seen you both . My prayers are with you and your family . Patty Nitcher
~ Patricia Nitcher - January 16, 2018
Ted and Sara have been dear friends for many years and we are so saddened at Ted's passing. We dropped by at Christmas time and his spirits were high. He truly was a strong man and Sara was his match. We had great times at all their wonderful parties. Beautiful memories with great friends. (from Kelly) Ted, I've enjoyed our fishing trips to Minnesota! I'll meet you at the stream.

Ted was a great man. He served his country faithfully for decades and risked his life for ours, with agent Orange making him a casualty in the end. He contributed substantially and for a long time to the Kansas Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve - he will be greatly missed by me as a person and for his support of ESGR where I knew him the best. Since I am a victim of prostate cancer myself, I can identify with the perniciousness of that disease, even though mine was probably not caused by agent Orange. Please accept my deepest condolences on this great loss to all of us.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family at this time of loss.

Sara and family,
My sincere sympathy to you. My youngest son told me about Ted’s death. I have many fond memories of times Roger and I spent with you. I’ll always consider you part of my family. I’ll see you at the church on Saturday if I can. Love you and may God bless you all. Myrna
~ Myrna (Griffith) Moler - January 15, 2018
Sara & family--my prayer goes up for you peace & comfort. Ted was one of a kind. I have pleasant memories of hearing his wit & of our ski adventures in Colorado. He was kind & thoughtful & always ready to lend a hand. God bless.
~ Marcia Wade - January 15, 2018
I am saddened by the death of Ted. I played softball with Ted for many years and developed a good friendship with him. I was able to visit with him not long ago. My deepest sympathy goes to Sara and his entire family. May God be with you at this most difficult time.
~ Gary Comstock - January 15, 2018
I was blessed to work with Ted for many years at FHLB Topeka. He was part of the institution of the Bank and always had a few minutes to stop and say hi. Ted lived his life to the fullest with ski trips, running with the bank crew, biking, softball, and many other activities. His face lit up when talking about his wife, kids and grandkids. I'm so sad to hear of his passing. My heart is with you.

I was saddened to read of the passing of Brother Hischke, and my thoughts & prayers are with his family, friends and chapter brothers.
While I never had the privilege of meeting Ted, I pledge that the SigEp Patriots Project will always remember him, his life & his service.

Dear Sara and family,
I was so sorry to hear of Ted's passing. Words say very little at a time like this, but knowing people care and thinking of you maybe helps. I hope so. I know you all have wonderful memories of him and how great it was to have him in all your lives.
Please except my deepest sympathy.

Sara, I am so sorry to hear about your husband's passing. I know that is a very difficult time for you. Our prayers are with you.
~ Linda Donaldson - January 14, 2018
Dear Mrs. Hischke, Martin, and Amy,
Toward the end we learn we're all of one family, and loss is not a time to stay back quietly. I'm all but certain I served in the Kansas Army National Guard with Ted; he and I were activated in 1968, and we served separately at almost identical times in South Vietnam, and yes we were both exposed to grotesque amounts of Agent Orange. And, Martin, I well remember you from when you sat in front of me at Topeka High. And, Mrs. Hischke, of course I well remember the pleasure of meeting you! My heartfelt condolences to you all. Many of us are thinking of you.
~ Bob Adamson - January 14, 2018
We were so saddened to hear of Ted’s passing and our hearts go out to all of you who will miss his daily presence in your lives. He was quite a remarkable man. I know you have LOTS of good memories to keep him close to you and to give you comfort. Sending you our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Sara & Family,
We are so very sorry for your loss. Ted was truly a fine man and the world is a little darker with his loss. Every encounter with Ted was a real pleasure. He was always so positive, even during his long struggle with health issues. He was a shining example of a life well-lived and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Try to focus on the many good memories you have of Ted's life.

Ted's positive outlook on life is a virtue I've admired--and will long remember. It was always great fun to swap skiing stories with him, and I'll especially miss interacting with him at our Topeka High School Class of 1962 reunions. Linda and I send our condolences to Sara, Amy, Martin, and all the members of Ted's extended family.
~ James McHenry - January 13, 2018
Dear Sara and Family,
We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts are with you.
Nothing can ever replace the amazing person who your husband was. It is indeed sad to part ways with someone so sincere and generous. May he rest in peace.
With caring thoughts,

Sara, Amy and Martin our deepest sympathy to you with the passing of Ted. I met Ted in 1963 when I became a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon. Ted was my Pledge Father. His guideness helped me towards my college degree. Over the years we would see each other at dinners and 4th of July gatherings. I always admired the way Ted maintained an active schedule. He will be missed by his family and many friends.

A true gem. Ted was so loved in the ski club. His spirit and enthusiasm was so infectious. I have many fond memories of taking that trail we feared, but did it anyway, and then laughed when we were still in one piece.
~ Joni Thompson - January 13, 2018
I did not know Ted but I did go to high school with his wife, Sara. I want to offer my condolences to Sara and all of Ted's family and may he rest in peace. To Sara it has been many years since we have seen each other but will always remember our friendship and classmates.
~ Diann Edwards Arbuthnot - January 13, 2018
We have so many beautiful, FUN and crazy memories with Ted thru out his 25 years of Topeka Ski Club, way too many to share. But he did LOVE skiing and the mountains, as all of us do! He enjoyed skiing with a group and he would always "take up the back", just in case one of should happen to fall..... (Have to admit, I've been there a few times) he was right there to lift a hand or a ski pole and help us get up and catch up with the rest of the group! He loved skiing with his family, Martin, Amy & Chris and was so proud when the grandkids joined in! He was so contagious when he shared his ski stories with co-workers and friends, as many of them wanted to join in the fun as well. And they did indeed! And when they did, he would make sure that they learned how to ski and have fun. He would take time for them to learn and ski with them so that they did! We had so much fun ON AND OFF the mountains! As Sarah would join us for the parties and, of course, her delicious snacks and treats! He was always wiling to help in whatever endeavor our group would challenge and served on the board for many years. Ted was such a caring person! He will truly be deeply missed by us all! We are sure that he is now on top of that beautiful white mountain and smiling down at each of us, as he has "made it to the peak!"

Never a finer husband, father or friend has drawn breath than Ted Hischke! What a lovely person in every possible aspect.
Deep sadness at such a huge loss, but what a joy that so many were blessed by his love and friendship.
