Ted F Zepeda-Waimea Canyon-Kauai

Ted Zepeda, 67, of Burien, WA passed away among family Monday Feb 04 2019. Lung cancer took him too soon and we are grateful his suffering has ended.

Born in Yakima, WA on February 10, 1951 to Edmund Albert and Helen Marian (Sherry) Zepeda, he graduated from East Valley High School in 1969, married, and fathered two children. After serving his country during wartime, he apprenticed with the Carpenter’s Union and was a journeyman carpenter for 30 years. He took much pride in his work and advanced to a management role for some of the big names in the Seattle construction industry.image of Ted Zepeda

After retiring, Ted enjoyed his life in Burien and was a regular at the Sunnydale, among several other local joints. A good time for him was spending time with close friends and family, say for a meal or a trip to Vegas, and working in his yard. He had an avid interest in the stock market and spent much of his free time learning the ins and outs of trading.

Survived by his daughter Carley (Megan Vee), son Ben (René Garcia), sister Karen Garcia, brothers John (Margit Basel Zepeda) and Ken, sister-in-law Carol Noel, mother of his children, Loretta Apodaca, and many niblings, all who remember him fondly.
