He was the son of Gladys Ewing and Orville Grubb, whom he considered his dad. He married Verla Smith in 1946 in Kentucky. They were married for twenty nine years before she passed away. He later married Rowena Fornear of Argenta, IL.
Ted was employed by International Harvester in Indiana. In 1955 he moved to Decatur and worked for Caterpillar Tractor Company. During his time, he was elected Financial Secretary of Local U.A.W. #751 for four years. The employees then elected him President of the Union. He held this position for six years. In 1987 with thirty two years of dedicated service he retired. Ted’s pleasures were simple- he loved going to the Casino boat in Peoria at least once a week, playing scrabble, rummy, some travel, and eating at Smorgasbords which he called “hog houses”! Food was his number one passion. He was well known at Home Town Buffet!! Ted was affiliated with the Baptist Church.

Ted was preceded in death by his father Vincent Atteberry, mother Gladys Grubb, and his “dad” Orville Grubb.
Dad worked hard his entire life, but most importantly, he cared about his family and friends. Our hearts are broken- we were not ready to let him go. His virtues of honesty, caring, generosity, his sense of humor, and his heart of gold will be remembered by all that knew him. He was a class act and one that cannot be followed.
Our family is especially grateful to Dr. Sherwood for his care and kindness, Dr. Rademacher, and his entire ICU staff at D.M.H..
