Edgar “Ted” Grace was born on Sunday, October 23, 1927 to Harold and Lillian (McCarthy) Grace in Highmore, Hyde County, South Dakota. In 1946, he graduated Scotland High School and opened his own television and electronics store. Ted started his store by repairing radios then televisions and served as the town’s electronic specialist for over 50 years. He was an active supporter of the community of Scotland, being a member of the Historical Society, Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce and volunteer at all veteran events, the Scotland Rodeo, and many more. If a sound system was needed for a Scotland function, Ted immediately volunteered his time and equipment. His hard work and dedication to the community was formally recognized on April 20, 1990 by Governor George Mikkelson who declared April 20 as “Ted Grace Day in Scotland” and a large town celebration was held in his honor. Ted was always ready to spend time with friends, unless his night was already taken by a Scotland baseball game where he provided the sound system. He was a member of the United Methodist Church in Scotland and served as an usher for many years. Ted died on Monday, September 8, 2014 at the Good Samaritan Society of Scotland having attained the age of 86 years, 10 months, and 16 days.
He is survived by his sister, Marilyn Matthews of Houston, Texas; three nephews: Wayne (Linda) Grace of Black Hawk, SD, James (Carry) Grace of Houston, TX, and Jim Matthews of Houston, TX; two nieces: Barbara Matthews of Houston, TX and Mary Matthews of Greeley, CO; great-nieces and nephews; special friends: Don Schmidt and Marvin and Agnes Thum; and his many friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Lillian Grace, his brother, Wayne Grace, and his beloved dog, Jojo
