He is survived by one of his brothers, Dennis Trivett. Two brothers and four sisters preceded him in death. He is also survived by eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
While he had limited formal education, Ted was self-taught and very proficient in all aspects of construction, including supervision of work crews, plan reading, carpentry, masonry and construction equipment operation. He was well respected in the industry. He was also an excellent auto mechanic.
A quiet man, he was always willing to help friends and family with various projects and repairs, including construction of Marsh Road Baptist Church in Woodbridge, Virginia.
