Theodore Jess Cornell, 63, passed away Aug. 25, 2020. A memorial will be held at a later date when health restrictions are lifted. Ted was born March 12, 1957 in Ladysmith, and lived the first eight years of his life on the farm near Hannibal after which the family moved to the Jump River area, where he lived the rest of his life. Ted graduated from Gilman High School in 1975 where he played football and wrestled for the Pirates. Ted worked as a young man in construction and in the woods. He worked at Morton Chemical for ten years before the Northwoods called him home. He loved hunting of all kinds, the outdoors and fishing in either cold or warm weather. He loved guns and anything to do with them. He was a licensed gunsmith. Ted liked playing cards, games and puzzles of all kinds. DO NOT call during Jeopardy or Packer games upon penalty.

He is survived by his three sisters, Sandra Young, Pamela Cornell and Nancy (Gene) Schuette; six brothers, Steven (Carolynn), Timothy (Kathleen), Kenneth (Dinah), Bradley (Leslie), Dewey (Judy) and Kelly (Patricia); 31 nieces and nephews; 47 great nieces and nephews including 13 step nieces and nephews; and five great-great nieces and nephews.

We loved our Ted and will miss him greatly. Ted always had good stories, a bit of advice and enjoyed get-togethers. Ted loved all of us too.
