Theodore Edward Dashnaw, 77, of El Dorado Hills, California, passed away on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015 at his home.

Ted was born in Lake Placid on Dec. 1, 1937. He graduated from Lake Placid High School, class of 1955, where he excelled in many sports activities, played clarinet in the high school band, sang in the boys glee club and, with many of his friends, worked and partied summers in the parking lot at the North Pole in Wilmington.

His cousin Rod summed up these early years. "Ted was an All-American boy. An excellent student, class leader, star athlete in football, basketball, baseball, skiing and speed skating; talented in music and drama, and so popular that he was elected king of the Winter Carnival by all students in grades 7 to 12. He was also named to Who's Who in Colleges and Universities. He continued to be an avid golfer throughout his adult life."
