Ted Elton May, 85, born May 2, 1935 in North Carolina passed away on September 22, 2020 at his home in Lumberport. He is survived by his wife Nancy; beloved great-granddaughter, Amy Marks and her family, Ryan; Lindsay; Emma; and Dustin of Shinnston; his step-daughter, Linda DiMatteo of Wallace; and his brothers, H.B.; Jimmie; and Allen.
Ted served our country in the U.S. Marines in Korea. He was a jack of all trades and loved doing carpentry. He owned a custom drapery shop in Florida for many years. He enjoyed working in the yard and spent many hours outdoors.
Many heart-felt thanks to WVU’s United Hospital Center Hospice for the care he received and especially to Tessa who showed great care and compassion. And a very special thank you to Amy Marks who took care of him night and day. It meant so much.
Ted was a good, kind and loving man. Rest in Peace.

I am Elton's sister. My condolences to his 3 living children (1 deceased) whom he abandoned and never supported, and to his grandchildren, whom he never acknowledged. Also to the female family members whose childhood innocence and security he stole. May his soul rest in triumphant justice. Becky
