I am deeply saddened to tell you that long time administrator and member of WebmasterWorld, Tedster (Warren "Ted" Ulle) passed away Friday in his sleep with family near.

Ted was a dear friend of this community and everyone involved. He always made time to talk to people regardless of their circumstances. He was one of the most friendly and approacable people in the entire industry. It was for that very reason that he was voted to be awarded the WebmasterWorld lifetime achievement award last year.

While Ted had been sick for quite some time, he never showed it or bothered anyone with it. His strength while facing it, was inspirational and trademark Tedster.

Ted worked for many of the largest brands on the interent today - from HP to eBay - and yet, he always had time to answer a stickymail question, or pop in a thread to send a new user on the right path.

We will miss him dearly.

So sorry to hear this, and wish I checked in more often to send more timely condolences to friends and family.

I had several one-on-one messages back and forth with Ted... My wife, who never laid eyes on this website, was even saddened by the news after hearing how often I had spoken of the kind man that helped a stranger through so many questions. Never once asking for anything in return.

The industry, and this forum has lost a great advocate and calm voice. He will be missed for sure.

wow! Just google WebmasterWorld and heard about this. This is so sad.

I never met Ted, however, private messaged him several times for the past several years. He was always great help.

RIP Tedster.

I just learned yesterday that Ted passed away and felt that I needed to comment. I had to honor to work with him on freelance projects. And as many of us agree it was a real pleasure. It is a man with a very good heart and a true passion for search. He was a very giving and patient person. The last time I spoke with him was after he had a major foot surgery. I wonder if is death comes from it. I am very touched by this news as he seemed in good spirit when we last spoke! Rest in peace Ted.

I haven't know the man but am deeply touched by the reactions to his passing. Easy to understand that what REALLY is next to godliness is caring and being kind!
