Sad News To Report

Louis T. Leonsis, Ted's father, passed away last night.

From Ted's Take:

My dad, Louis T. Leonsis, passed away last night. He was almost 94 years old. I was with him and held his hand and told him how much he meant to me. He was a great father. I will miss him more than words can describe.
He was a sweet man and a very kind soul. As an only child, I have lost my mom (19 years ago) and now my dad and move forward in life as father and husband now to my family. The circle of life continues.
I hope you will keep him in your thoughts and prayers and respect our family's privacy on this matter.

My prayers go out to the Leonsis family. We often don't see owners who care about their teams as much as he cares about the Caps.

My condolences to the Leonsis family at this difficult moment. If his son is any indication of his life, I am certain he will be remembered fondly.

I lost my dad too this year (he was 90), so I can relate to what Ted must be feeling. My condolences to the Leonsis family.

My families thoughts and prayers are with you Ted. I lost my Father last year, but I have many memories of him. God bless.
