Edward Lassen Slattery
EDWARD LASSEN SLATTERY, son of Harry William and Henrianne Ahier (Phelan) Slattery, was born on March 11, 1955, in Pasadena, California and passed away at his residence, in Marshfield, on January 1, 2019, at the age of 63.
He was united in marriage with Tamera (Murry) on October 8, 1977, a union that lasted over 41 years. Together they raised three sons, all surviving.
For thirty-two years, Ted was the pastor for the Valley Christian Church in Moreno Valley, California. He also spent several years in law enforcement ministry for the Riverside County Sheriff. He loved the Lord and Ted’s life was a testament of this love.
Music was a great big part of Ted’s life. He loved all kinds of music and passed this passion on to his sons. He also loved trains and collected all kinds of model trains. And when it came to sports, to Ted, there was nothing greater than his Green Bay Packers!!!
Even the Packers took a back seat to Ted’s family. His family meant everything to him and they will miss his laughter, his joking and his singing.
He is survived by his wife Tamera, of the home; three sons: Michael Hooks and his wife Fawn, of Marshfield, Scott Lee Slattery and his wife Melanie, of Katy, Texas and Christopher John Hooks and his girlfriend Christy Howerton, of Marshfield; one brother: William Fremont Slattery, of Eugene, Oregon; two sisters, Alice Wickenden Bower and her husband John, of Battleground, Washington and Margaret Joan Convery and her husband Tim, of Portland, Oregon; eleven grandchildren: Ivy, Travis, Alex, Joseph, Devyn, Mason, Peyton, Breanna, Kyle, Aurora, and Shiann. He was preceded in death by his parents and one grandson, Dylan.
