Howard (Ted) Bair

Passed Away

February 20


Howard (Ted) Bair, 77, son of the late Howard (Cub) Bair and Elizabeth (Betty) Falls, was born on September 16, 1942, in Des Moines, Iowa. He passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly on February 20, 2020, of a heart attack. Ted was raised in Mason City, Iowa, with his two sisters, Anne (Gary) Wilcox of Mission Viejo, CA, and Molly (Mark) Williams of Cedar Rapids, IA. He later attended the University of Iowa, where he was a letter winner on the Hawkeye golf team. At the U of I he also cultivated his passion for watching and cheering for Hawkeye sports, particularly Football and Basketball. We have many wonderful memories of Saturdays spent at Kinnick Stadium as a family and later watching Hawkeye football games on TV together. At the University of Iowa Ted met Nancy Peters, who he married, and together they raised their three children in Mason City, Iowa: Whitney (Marc) Molis of Urbandale, IA, Alex (Amy) Bair of Urbandale, IA, and Carter (Kelli) Bair of Victor, NY. They later divorced, but Ted felt fortunate to again find love, later in life, with Karen Levis, and he and Karen enjoyed many adventures together including a cruise to Southeast Asia last winter. 

Ted started out selling life insurance for John Hancock in Des Moines. In 1973 his father unexpectedly passed away and Ted bought his father’s beer distributorship, Blue Ribbon Inc., and grew the company ten-fold. He later sold the distributorship and briefly worked in investment trading. Ted had an interest in helping people, so he went back to school to become certified as a substance abuse counselor and worked at Prairie Ridge Addiction Treatment Center. Ted subsequently returned to the business world as the Small Business Development Center director at NIACC in Mason City. He moved to Urbandale, Iowa, in 2014 to be closer to his children and grandchildren. He took a job as the Interim State Director and later Regional Director of Small Business Development at Iowa State. Ted briefly retired in 2017, but was back to working at Iowa State at least 3 days a week at the time of his death. 

But the most important thing in Ted’s life was family. Ted loved attending his grandchildren’s activities and he will be missed every day by his 7 grandchildren: Kaitlyn (15), Courtney (12), Ashley (11), Preston (11), Elliott (10), Palmer (2), and Hayden (4 months). His children will miss his advice, support, and conversations. Ted was a wonderful conversationalist, and when you talked with him you always had his full attention. He would notice and appreciate even the small details of a meal, a sporting event, or a music program. He loved travel, golf, fishing in Canada, and playing Fantasy Football. We will miss having him in our everyday lives so much. 

Memorial contributions can be made to the Iowa State University Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship.

Visitation will be at Lutheran Church of Hope, West Des Moines, from 10-11 AM on Thursday, February 27, 2020, followed by a Celebration of Life Service at 11AM at Lutheran Church of Hope. Luncheon to follow at Hope.

The Man Who Gave Up Sex for Golf


A golfer is in a competitive match with a friend, who is ahead by a couple of strokes.

"Boy, I’d give anything to sink this putt", the golfer mumbles to himself. 


Just then, some stranger walks up beside him and whispers, “Would you be willing to give up a quarter of your sex life to sink the putt?"


Thinking the man is crazy and his answer will be meaningless, the golfer also feels that maybe this is a good omen, so he says, "Sounds good to me," and promptly sinks the putt!


Two holes later, he mumbles to himself again, "Gosh, I wish I could get an eagle on this one."


The same stranger is suddenly at his side again and whispers, “Would it be worth giving up another quarter of your sex life to make an eagle?"


Shrugging, the golfer replies, "Okay." And, amazingly, he makes the eagle. 


On the final hole, the golfer needs another eagle to win. Without waiting for him to say anything, the stranger quickly moves to his side and says, “Could winning this match be worth giving up the rest of your sex life?”


"Definitely," the golfer replies, and sure enough he makes the eagle and wins the match. 


As the golfer is walking to the club house, the stranger walks along beside him and says, "I haven't really been fair with you because you don't know who I am. I’m Satan, and from this day forward you really will have no sex life at all."


“Nice to meet you," the golfer replies. "I'm Father O'Malley.”



Last year, I replaced all the windows in my house with those expensive double pane energy efficient kind. But this week, I got a call from the contractor complaining that his work had been completed a whole year and I had yet to pay for them.

Boy, oh boy, did we go around! Just because I'm blonde doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid. So, I proceeded to tell him just what his fast-talking sales guy had told me last year. He said that in one year, the windows would pay for themselves. There was silence on the other end of the line, so I just hung up, and he hasn't called back. Guess he was embarrassed.





                                               A Positive Attitude

  • After his plane was hit and he was forced to eject, the Marine Corps fighter pilot

    finally regained consciousness. 


    He  was in a hospital, in a lot of pain.  He found himself in the ICU with tubes and

            IV drips in both arms, a breathing mask, wires monitoring every function and a nurse 

    hovering over him, looking worried.  It was obvious he was in a life-threatening situation.


    The nurse gave him a serious look, straight into his eyes.  Knowing he was not only 

                a fighter pilot, but a Marine, she spoke to him softly  and slowly, enunciating each 

    word: "You may not feel anything from the waist down.”

    Somehow, he managed to mumble in reply, "Can I feel your boobs, then?

    And that, my friends, is a real Positive Attitude!!
