He was born in Los Angeles, California to the late Arthur and Nora (Mortensen) Petersen. He graduated from high school in 1957.

He served his country in the United States Air Force for 26 years. Most of his career was spent as a cryptologic linguist – crew member on RC-135’s. He was stationed in Alaska, Turkey, Monterey California, Germany, England, and Nebraska. While in England, he was one of two “Yanks” to be trained to referee “Association Football” (soccer). He supported his sons in scouts and sports.

In retirement he was an NCOA counselor and an independent insurance agent. Ted was dedicated to caring for his family and was a private person. He enjoyed watching football, soccer, and NASCAR.
