Theodore (Ted) Siedlecki died peacefully on November 7, 2013 in his home in Southampton, NY. He was 95 years old. He is survived by his wife, Martha (Stachecki) and the families of their four children: Patricia and Douglas Dwyer; Marcia and Charles Zuhoski; Theodore Siedlecki, Jr. and Aron Teel; and James Siedlecki and Marilyn Quinn, who together gave him eight grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren. Ted grew up in Port Washington, NY, where he was a distinguished athlete at Port Washington High School. While in Port Washington Ted was employed by Pan American Airways where he supported the Pan Am Clipper ships operating out of Manhasset Bay. During World War II his work included extensive support of the US Navy. He was also a member of the Naval Reserves. In 1955, Ted and his family moved to Southampton, NY, where he worked at the Southampton Polish Hall and the Southampton Village Police Department until he joined the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department in 1966. There Ted rose to the rank of Captain in their Civil Department before retiring in 1984. Ted was a member of Our Lady of Poland Catholic Church, where he and his wife Martha were married over 71 years ago. Other memberships have included the PAPC (Polish American Political Club), the APPA (American Polish Political Association) and the Knights of Columbus.

During retirement Ted enjoyed watching his children grow through adulthood and raise children of their own, who in turn have begun a third generation. The one common memory of their father, grandfather, and great-grandfather is how loveable he was with children. Children gravitated to him and were drawn to his deep voice and mischievous manner. He will be remembered with great fondness.
