Ted Bacon was a true gentleman and perfectionist in all aspects of his life. Red and I met Ted in 1974 at Jubilee Ranch in Minden and enjoyed a enduring friendhip with Ted and his wife Lee....having many memories of riding ranch horses and working cattle. My heart goes out to Ted"s Family and to his lovely wife Lee. Sincerely, lothian Skelton Rancho Mirage, Ca, and Burnt Valley Ranch, Anza.Ca.

My grandfather John has worked for Mr. Bacon and lived on the Jubilee Ranch sense I was a tiny girl. He was always a sweet sweet man. I've always had the utmost respect for Mr. Bacon and my heart goes out to his family and his beautiful wife.
