Ted was born March 1, 1947 in Houston, Texas to Jimmy and Irene Hilton. He graduated from Jones High School, Texas A&M and UT Dental School. He was a dentist for 46 years. <br />
Ted also known as "Captain Doc", was one of a kind. He was a devoted daddy and good son, awesome Powpow, and especially these last years, with all his health challenges. He never once complained. He embraced life with good humor and kindness. There's no telling how many boats he had in his lifetime. I'm sure he didn't know either. He was also a great dancer. He so enjoyed his dancing club. And he loved the ladies! His adventures on the creek, offshore and sailing were true adventures for whoever was with him! Oh, the stories.. <br />
When he was just a little boy, he knew he wanted to be a dentist. He graduated from A&M in 3 years and became an amazing dentist, with a large loyal following. He had so many good friends. He loved kids so much and they adored him! He was a loving Pawpaw and Uncle Teddy Bear. But most of all, he was just a wonderful human being who will never ever ever be forgotten! <br />
