Among the buildings and projects he created, was his own home. He was employed as a barber. "Ted" enjoyed "the art of lively conversation" as he worked.

      One of "Ted's" hobbies was the collection of the antique time pieces that filled his home. At the "top of the hour", chimes and a multitude of noises went off to mark the hour. Being a patient and detail oriented person, Wilford acquired clock making skills and patiently put them into practice in making and rebuilding clocks. Additionally, he is remembered for teaching clock making to male relatives. He lived on "Coon's Lake", enjoying the peace and the timely ringing of the bells, chimes, and the sounds of his beloved clocks.

      Affectionately referred to as "Ted", he was known for his "speaking the truth in love". He was not afraid to express his beliefs, being honest and outspoken in communications. Wilford is remembered for being a man of speaking his mind. He was also a kind, friendly, and generous man.

      He has three children.
