July 18, 1934 ‒ May 05, 2021
Ted Apking, age 86, peacefully passed away in his sleep at his Lexington home on May 5, 2021.
Theodore Herbert Apking was born on July 18, 1934, in Cincinnati to Theodore J. & Selma (Nahrholt) Apking. On February 6, 1971, he married Linda (Preston) and he was a wonderful husband and Dad to his family.
He worked as an operations manager for Dearman Moving & Storage (United Van Lines) and was proud to be the plant manager at Hilltop Concrete where he worked his way up from a driver. He enjoyed running, working out, and in younger years was a championship marksman.
Ted’s passion was boating and he particularly enjoyed Lake Cumberland in KY. He loved cars—especially his Mustang. He took pride in his boat & car—waxing them often to a polished shine. He will be remembered for his love of family and will be dearly missed.
He is survived by his children (& spouses) Dr. Ted Apking of Algonac, MI, Sandy & Dan Wishnick of Cumming, GA, Mike & Tara Apking of Bellville, and Nikki Adkins of Mansfield; 7 grandchildren; and dear friend Nancy Franks of Ontario.
Ted was preceded in death by his wife Linda Apking in 2017; sister Sonia Mae; and grandson Eric Wishnick.
His family will receive friends 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon Friday, May 14, 2021, at Snyder Funeral Home, 2553 Lexington Avenue in Mansfield. A funeral service honoring Ted’s life will begin at 12:00 Noon officiated by family friend Pastor Tim Campbell.
