The world became brighter on October 1st 1954, the day that Teddy James Melotte was born to the late Clinton “Bud” and Marie (Pierquet) Melotte. Our beloved Teddy sadly passed on Thursday, December 1st, earning his angel wings. His final days were spent surrounded by his loving family. He was the heart and soul to his family, friends and community. Teddy’s sense of humor, warmth, charm and smile lit up the room. He was a beautiful soul who spread joy and happiness wherever he went. Teddy touched the lives of so many people. He will truly be missed and will never, ever, be forgotten. (Cubby Bear) will always hold a special place in our hearts. He would love to be remembered with funny, strange, or silly stories that celebrate what was good and blessed in his life.
Teddy was a hard worker and often bragged about it to many. He was employed by Schreiber Foods for many years before retiring from the Green Bay Water Utility.
