Ted married his wife, Lucille (Mullis) Noblitt, on Sept. 20, 1974, at Bargersville First Christian Church; she survives.

Ted is survived by his siblings, Max (Marcie) Noblitt of Waynetown, Bill (Roberta) Noblitt of St. Louis, Mary Kay (Buzz, deceased) Brown, Carole (Mark) Graham,, Patricia (Tom, deceased) Trusty and Jim (Vicki) Noblitt, all of Franklin.

Ted enjoyed his 13 grandchildren, Levi, Garrett, Katelyn, Alexis, Kelly (deceased), Tyler, Brooke, Jonathan, Mindy, Megan, Melissa, Derek and Cassie; and his six great-grandchildren, Brooklyn, Caden, Grace, Noah, Chloe and Luke.

Ted graduated from Center Grove High School in 1951. He served four years in the U.S. Air Force. He retired from the U.S. Postal Service in 1995 at the Southport post office as a letter carrier. He previously worked at Monarch Beverage in Indianapolis for 10 years. Ted was an avid golfer, along with his partner and wife, Lucy. He enjoyed working part time at Tameka Woods and Indian Springs golf courses after retirement. Ted enjoyed all sports, especially basketball and golf. Ted also enjoyed telling a good story or a good joke. His family will miss his sense of humor and his reminiscing about his family and youth.

The Rev. Allen Whitehurst conducted a service Friday, June 7 at Swartz Family Community Mortuary and Memorial Center, in Franklin. Friends called before the service at the mortuary. Burial was at Forest Lawn Memory Gardens in Greenwood with military honors.
