Ted Williams, 1918-2002
The family of Ted Williams is feuding over what should be done with the slugger's remains. His son wants to deep-freeze Williams's corpse for future revival or cloning. But according to his daughter, the Red Sox Hall of Famer wanted to be cremated. What do you think?
Many of the people that were closest to Ted have made it clear he expressed his wish was to be creamated. His son cannot be trusted. He is greedy and shameless. His past record is evidence of his willingness to do anything to make a buck.

He should rest in peace and his family should adhere to his final wishes.

He should be thawed and cremated and put to rest if that was his wish. DNA for Profit? didnt John Henry make enuff with signed memorabilia.? they cant bring Walt Disney back either. Let the man Rest in Peace its an abomination if you ask me. Ted must be rolling over in his Cryo-Chamber..
Ted should be cremated as he requested. And his greedy assed money hungry son should get a serious punch in the face just for being the disrespectful little worm that he is.

I think it's a total disgrace what John Henry has done! Ted Williams will states he wanted to be cremated and his son should abide by his wishes. Ted's first mistake was trusting his only son to take care of affairs, John Henry is a money grubbing bum that could care less about his father. All he's interested in is how much money is going to land in his pocket! I'm hoping the courts will agree with his daughter and the last will and testament of the greatest slugger of all time. God only knows what John Henry had his father signing over the last few months, he wants to save his DNA, the question is why? He has his DNA and he can't play ball! John Henry should be ashamed of himself!
Ted Williams should be cremated as he wanted. I think they should deep freeze John Henry. That boy has some issues. He's used his father for years to fill his bank account.

I am a little unclear on why this is a public issue. Frankly, its a little disgusting and unsettling that Dan Shaugnessy and others think that this is any of their business. This is a family issue and it should be kept in the family. It is not up to us what they do with him.
