Theodore Russell Point, Sr. went home to be with the LORD on October 21, 2021, surrounded by family in his home of more than 50 years.   We were singing Great is Thy Faithfulness and How Great Thou Art during his last moments.

Ted   was   born   in   Des   Moines,   Iowa   on August   20,   1936   to   Russell   and   Janet Point.  Ted often spent summers during his grade   school   years   on   his   Uncle  John’s farm in Iowa; learning the meaning of hard work,  how  to  sneak  up  on  the  chickens  in the  machine  shed,  and  to  stay  away  from the bull.

At the age of 16, Ted and his mother moved to    Long    Beach,    California,    where    he graduated  from  Poly  Technic  High  School in 1954.

After graduating, Ted enlisted in the Air Force and was stationed at Mountain Home Air Force Base as a radar technician. On one of his weekly trips to Boise, he met his wife June Lont. On a double date with Ted’s best friend Jim Lupher, June and her sister, Sally, at some point Ted and Jim decided to swap partners. Ted took June home that night and later told Jim, “That’s the girl I’m going to marry.”

Ted  and  June  were  married  in  1957 and celebrated their 64th anniversary this past June.   They have two children, Charlotte Schmidt and Ted Point Jr., both of Nampa.

Ted’s father-in-law, George Lont (known as Pop), introduced him to the outdoors, leading to a deep love of firearms, hunting and fishing. Ted and June and their family shared many trips throughout the years to the outdoors. They particularly enjoyed Lopez Island in the Puget Sound visiting family in the area, and enjoying the seafood, clamming, and trolling for salmon.

Ted  worked  for several local businesses, but the longest was for Industrial Ventilation Inc. now located   in   Nampa,   Idaho.       He   worked   in   many   roles,   installing   ventilation   systems, manufacturing computer panels and humidifiers from 1976-2001.  After retiring, he continued to work for IVI part time from 2006-2019.

Ted was actively involved in many churches in the valley, most recently at Columbia Bible Church. He also served in many ways at Shiloh Bible Camp in Donnelly, Idaho, combining his love of the outdoors with service for his Savior.

He is survived by his wife of 64 years, his two children, eight grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. His parents, his older sister Beverly, and a nephew preceded him in death.
