Edward Albert Bissett

TEDTED, as he was known to his many friends, was a much-loved member of Vintage Men. Although he was not a member in the early years, his contribution to Vintage Men was huge. He soon became involved in many ways, including being Vice-President. He was our Pastoral Care man, the ideal man for that job because he really did care. He phoned and visited members who were sick. When he got to the stage when he couldn't drive, Ray drove him. He was a tremendous help to Noel during his very long stay in hospital. When Noel couldn't walk, Ted would get his meal for him at the lunches. No-one could resist him when Ted took over the raffles when Noel couldn't do them any more. The raffles were a great help tho the Vintage Men finances.

Ted was always happy when he was helping someone else.


When we read the story of Ted's life, it sounds as though he was a maverick – but he wasn't. He was very much a traditionalist, with values that are now considered old – fashioned.

Rest in peace, dear friend. You were one of Nature's gentlemen. You will live on in our hearts.

Ted passed away in Nov 2008.
