Obituary of Ted Muzzell

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Edward John Muzzell (Ted) of Owen Sound, Ontario, at Chapman House, surrounded by his loving family, on August 19, 2021, in his 87th year,

Ted epitomizes by 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

Love is patient, Love is kind

It does not envy, it does not boast

It is not proud

It always protects, always trusts

Always hopes and always perseveres,

Love never fails
