On June 9, 2017, FERDINAND “TED” WILLIAM BOCKELMAN, beloved husband of the late Betty C. Bockelman; devoted father of Bonnie Richmond (Joe), Betty Ann Bockelman, Brian Bockelman, and Mark Bockelman (Ellen); loving grandfather of Josh, Diana, Alyson, and Brooklynne; also survived by his sister, Jean Scarburgh, and many loving family and friends.

Born in Baltimore, Ted began his career as an accountant and married Betty in 1951. After graduating from law school, he was employed with the U.S. Justice Department as a trial attorney. He was also a past Worshipful Master of the Millington Number 166 Masonic Lodge. Ted’s greatest joy was spending time with his family, but he also enjoyed fishing, relaxing by the ocean, and rooting for his Orioles and Ravens. His loss is irreplaceable, but heaven has gained the finest.
