Theodore (Ted) Curt Krause
Age 77 Addison
Theodore, Ted Curt Krause, a mountain of a man with an even bigger heart was called home on Friday January 4th. He was 77 years old.
Ted was born in Clifton, New Jersey on May 24th, 1941. He grew up in Clifton with his only sibling, a sister, who was a medical assistant, his father, a manufacturer and his mother, a physical therapist.
Ted attended Eastern Christian High School in North Haledon, NJ and proceeded to serve the next 6 years in the United States Navy before receiving his degree from Fairleigh Dickenson University. He then married the one and only love of his life, Dorothy A. Sweetman in 1963. Over the next 55 years they had 2 sons, moved to Southington CT to raise them, and then retired to his dream, â€œlittle corner of the worldâ€ in Addison, VT in 2000. He was a more than devoted husband and father, as well as everything a grandfather, (â€œPop, Popâ€) should be to 2 beautiful granddaughters.
Ted was predeceased by his father, Theodore C. Krause, and his mother Lena Van Bevren.
He leaves his wife, Dorothy A. Krause of Addison, and sons, Kenneth Krause and daughter-in-law Marsha of Cave Creek, AZ, Michael Krause and daughter-in-law Jennifer of Addison, granddaughters Lea and Georgia of Addison and his sister, Karen Dobb of Lindenwold, New Jersey along with his niece Julie and nephew Stephen.
To honor his wishes, no mass or ceremony will be held. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in his honor to the National Parkinsonâ€™s Foundation at .
