Update:   Ted died on Friday, June 30, 2017, at his home in Youngstown with his family by his side.  We remember him fondly --his great story telling, his sense of humor, his straight-to-the-point outlook on life.  He loved YACCB and the comradeship with fellow musicians.  He was instrumental in getting YACCB started and in mentoring it through the years.  Rest in peace!

On Monday January 12, 2015, Doug Lewis and John Berthold visited Ted O’Connor and his wife Shirley at their home in Youngstown.  Ted is a charter member and played in the first concert that YACCB perfomed in 1984.  The purpose of the visit was to surprise Ted with an award.  Ted was granted Lifetime Membership in the Youngstown Area Community Concert Band.  Lifetime or Life Membership in the YACCB is a membership classification provided for in the BYLAWS “that may be awarded to any member who has contributed outstanding or distinguished service over an extended period of time as determined by the Executive Board”.  Doug Lewis presented Ted with a plaque with the words reproduced below.  Following the presentation, Ted shared his memories of the YACCB with Doug, and John recorded a video of Ted’s reminiscence.  You can watch the 4-minute video now available.
