A gentle spirit, a kind human, a loving soul who in his quietness would give you his peace. My family met and was blessed to know Ted's family through the friendship that my daughter Lacy had with her schoolmate and best friend, Ted's granddaughter, Marie. Marie, like her grandpa, was loving, caring, kind, and wonderfully talented, and I considered her a daughter. Hearing of both their passing saddens our hearts as we continue our time here on earth. Knowing that there are such wonderful angels in heaven, we look forward to meeting again and be blessed to have the privilege of their company through eternity. We will keep you in our hearts always. Robin, Nick, and Lacy Fallucco

My husband and I were both very fond of Ted. I worked with him at the library for his entire time there, and my husband worked on his vehicle. He would greet every one of us girls at the door by name, and with a smile. He could turn a rough morning around in an instant. He was truly one of a kind, and will be terribly missed. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
