Edward Charles Roney III, "Ted"

A funeral Mass will be celebrated for Edward "Ted" Charles Roney III at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 9, at St. Paul on the Lake Catholic Church, 157 Lakeshore, Grosse Pointe Farms. He will lie in state beginning at 9:30 a.m. Visitation takes place from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8, at Chas. Verheyden Inc., 16300 Mack, Grosse Pointe Park. A Rosary will be said at 7 p.m.

Ted, a longtime resident of Grosse Pointe Farms, died Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022, of natural causes, surrounded by family. He is survived by his wife, Diane; children, Brian (Gwendolyn), Kevin (Alyssa), Kelly Campbell (Christopher) and Edward "Ted" IV (partner Kathryn Kravitz); grandchildren, Charles and Katherine Campbell, Skye Drake and Luna Roney; five brothers and 14 nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his grandson, Austin; brother, Stephen John; nephew, Peter Christopher; and parents.

Born Nov. 27, 1950, in Detroit, to Edward Charles Roney Jr. and Eleanor Couzens Roney, Ted was the eldest of seven brothers. He graduated from Northwood University and married Diane Marie Stanek, his wife of 38 years, in 1984, at St. Paul on the Lake. They raised their extended family in Grosse Pointe.

Ted had a long career in automobile sales, working 28 years at Roy O'Brien Ford until his retirement in late 2019. Prior to that, Ted worked for Wood Motors in Detroit. He belonged to several organizations and clubs over the years, including the Otsego Ski Club, where he served on the National Ski Patrol for 50 years. Ted also served in the Grosse Pointe Farms Police Reserves, serving his community 43 years. He was a member of the 100 Club and The Players Club in Detroit.

A devout Catholic, active St. Paul parishioner and daily communicant for many decades, Ted also served in the St. Paul Ushers Club and was a Past Faithful Navigator, Grand Knight and 4th Degree Knight in the Knights of Columbus. He was affectionately known to those close to him for his strong faith and encouraging people to go to Mass. He was a founding and proud member of the St. Paul Catholic Men's Fellowship group.

Ted was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He cared for people deeply and was liked by everyone who knew him. He was well-known for his gregarious smile and bone-crushing bear hugs that were a testament to his good nature and love of others. Ted was also a fanatical University of Notre Dame football fan, wearing and displaying school colors particularly on game days. He was very proud of his 36 years of sobriety and sponsored others in their quest for sober living.

Ted loved going "Up North" and grew up skiing at Otsego Ski Club with his parents and brothers. He served as a dedicated member of the Otsego Ski Patrol, helping many skiers throughout the years. Ted also enjoyed many summer and winter weekends with Diane and their children at the Roney family chalet on Kassuba Lake in Gaylord.

Interment is at Mount Olivet Cemetery, Detroit. Memorial contributions may be made to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, 1820 Mt. Elliott, Detroit, MI 48207.
