Ted died peacefully in the comfort and quiet setting of his home in Florida, surrounded by his loving family. Born on October 31, 1961 in Columbus, Ohio and he later moved to Palm Harbor, Florida over 20 years ago.
Ted leaves behind his wife, Tammy (Cardillo) Wolf, his daughter Andrea, sons Brandon and Theodore (TJ) III, his granddaughter, Kaylee and her mother Margaret Monroe, four sisters Peggy (Mike) McCoy, Martha (Greg) Henwood, Barbara Wolf, C. Sue (John) Gardiner, five brothers Carl (Catherine) Wolf, Jerry (Lori) Wolf, Stephen (Mary Murley) Wolf, Thomas (Karen) Wolf, David (Elaine) Wolf, his in-laws Carol and Paul Schwab, brother-in-law John (Kathleen) Cardillo, Paul (Katie) Schwab, many nieces, nephews and his beloved Cocker Spaniel, Bandit.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Theodore Wolf Sr. and Marie (Heeg), sister Christina Rogers, brother Gregory and wife Marla, and brother-in-law Bob Fischer.
He earned his Bachelorâ€™s Degree from Franklin University in Ohio and spent the next 32 years working for Hewlett Packard Enterprise as a Business Manager, receiving numerous awards for his leadership and top performance.
Ted was very courageous in his fight against cancer and managed to not skip a beat while working full-time as a Business Manager. He built strong friendships and relationships over his career and most people didn't even know he was battling cancer. He never let it stop him from living his life to the fullest. His passion to always help others at work is also how he faced his personal challenge. He participated in clinical trials and allowed the doctors permission to use his results towards finding a cure. Ted was a determined man that paved the way for others to learn from his experience. There is no doubt that he made a difference in everything he did personally and professionally. He was a man of good faith, loyal and committed to his family and friends and will be missed. Ted was truly â€œone of a kindâ€ and is now an Angel in heaven looking over all of us.
