He was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. and came to L.A. in 1941 to enter U.S.C. where he soon joined and lived in the fraternity house of Pi Kappa Alpha. Student life was interrupted by WWII when Ted was called to duty and served in France and Germany. When the war ended he returned to his family home and enrolled at the University of St. Louis. A year later he resumed studies at U.S.C and was graduated 1948. Later, he returned to his alma mater and obtained a Masters Degree in Education. Ted taught mathematics and for many years was Chairman of the Math Department at Phineas Banning High School in Wilmington, CA. In 1954 Ted married Mary Royce Altemus and a year later they moved to the house in Rolling Hills Estates where they have remained ever since…60 years. Travel was Ted's passion and he and Mary were fortunate to fulfill that dream over the years by extensively touring not only the U.S., but visiting over 45 countries and territories throughout the world as well. Ted is survived by his wife Mary; son Steven C. Rambach (Sandra) of the Woodlands, TX; son Timothy R. Rambach (Cynthia) of Gardena, CA; and two grandchildren. A memorial service is to be held Sunday, April 26 at 1:00pm at the Rolling Hills United Methodist Church, 26438 Crenshaw Blvd., Rolling Hills Est. 90274. No flowers please. Anyone wishing to honor Ted's memory might consider a contribution to the Rolling Hills Methodist Church which has established a Ted Rambach Memorial Fund. This fund will be used solely for the benefit of the church's High School Youth, the same age group to which Ted devoted his entire teaching career.

He leaves behind his beloved wife and best friend of over 30 years, Emily Rolland. His first years in Westchester, CA, were filled with antics with his cousin John. The Rolland and Jacobs families lived 3 doors apart which seemed more like one large family. Bruce's family moved to Santa Barbara in 1957. By high school Bruce was demonstrating his gift of creativity and mechanics when he restored a 1936 Plymouth and won top student awards. He joined the U.S. Navy with cousin John under the buddy system. Bruce's naval service of 8 years included 3 years stationed in Rota, Spain.

His career included supervision, management, and his favorite position was an AOG Field Mechanic. He traveled for the company troubleshooting problems with fighter aircraft. He retired after 27 years as a Master Program Planner. His retirement years were filled with his passion for restoring 19th century musical instruments and vintage automobiles. He won awards for his vehicles, some of which are now in 3 Southern California museums. His work has been featured in automotive books and television programs. He was an artist who displayed perfection and beauty in his work. Bruce's journey with cancer demonstrated his ability to look for solutions, to reach out to others for knowledge and to give support. He was ferocious in holding onto hope. His support system of family and friends was immense and a reflection of the love that so many had for him. He was generous, kind, and never lost his sense of play. He left us far too soon.
