Theodore H. "Ted" Wolf, Jr.

October 31, 1961~July 23, 2018

Theodore H.”Ted” Wolf, Jr. died on Monday, July 23rd, 2018, after losing his courageous 8 year battle with GIST cancer at the age of 56. 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 Bachelor’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 “one of a kind” and is now an Angel in heaven looking over all of us.

A Celebration of Life Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, July 28th, 2018 at 12:30 pm at St. Ignatius of Antioch Roman Catholic Church in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Funeral arrangements are provided by Thomas Dobies Funeral Home www.dobiesfuneralhome.com. In lieu of flowers, it was Ted’s wish that gifts be made in his memory to support GIST Cancer Research.

To Tammy & Ted's extended family, we want to extend our heartfelt condolences. While we mourn his passing, we also celebrate what he stood for, how he devoted himself to his friends and the values he believed in so deeply. Even at a time when he could have been extremely inwardly focused, he purposely chose to give more of himself to share knowledge, precious time, laughs & wisdom. This speaks volumes to the legacy he leaves behind for all of us. Our deepest sympathies and loving support —

After some thought I recall meeting Ted for the first time in Atlanta in 1999 after Compaq purchased Digital. We have crossed paths many times since but, during the past 3 years we have worked more closely together in support of the East geography. My wife and I also met Ted and Tammy on a cancer walk in Boston some years ago. I came to appreciate Ted's upbeat, can-do outlook during our recent time working together. We backed each other up and truly we had each others back. I will miss him; we all will.

I send my heartfelt sympathy to Tammy and Family . . . As a teacher, manager and friend, the knowledge and experience Ted shared with all of us continues to echo through HPE in so many ways. As an advocate, he committed to helping employees find their “best self” and using it in all aspects of life. I enjoyed our conversations and his sense of humor. On trips to Indianapolis from Washington, DC at Christmas, I promised Ted I would tell Columbus, Ohio as I drove by that he was enjoying the holiday in sunny Florida away from the snow and ice. On days he didn't feel at a 100%, he still gave a 100%. In his personal battle, he thought about how to build a better path for others. I was privileged to know him, lucky to work with him, and will always remember and miss him. My thoughts and prayers will be with you as you celebrate his life on July 28th. Sincerely, Donna

I only started working with Ted this year but I could tell from the start what a genuine person he was. He never shared his battle with cancer with me, I admire his strength and will miss seeing his smiling picture pop up during our frequent chats at work. As I froze in the Northeast I would ask Ted for weather reports from Florida to get me through the winter. Ted will be in my prayers as will his entire family. God Bless.

I am sibling #9 and Ted was sibling #11. We were only few years apart, but when you come from a large family, your siblings become close friends. We didn't need to find someone to play ball, we had our own built-in baseball team. Ted and I were close, especially after my wife and I followed Tammy and Teddy's footsteps and moved to Florida. A number of my siblings have moved to Florida and we try to get together a few times a year. Even with Ted's sickness, he was our teacher in what strength, compassion, and love was all about. Then you include Tammy into the mixture and the two of them became a tag-team of love. I am honored to be part of Ted and Tammy's “Wolf Strong” that accompanied them to the GIST Cancer walk-a-thon two weekends ago. The courage both of them displayed was amazing. Ted, God now has your hand. I know Mom, Dad, Christina, and Greg are welcoming you home. Love Carl

My sincerest condolences to Tammy and family. Ted and I often talked on calls about living at the beach and the water views we each had. I know he enjoyed his time on the water and I am happy to hear he was able to spend his last days at home on the water with Tammy and family. He will be truly missed.

Mike Cronin (A friend)

Ted was such a great guy. Always wanting to try new things and be involved in new projects because he enjoyed learning. He had a passion for working with sales to develop solutions and then had a relentless and unflagging commitment to make that solution happen. He was collaborative and a problem solver. More than all this he was a fighter against his cancer and a true inspiration for all of us. Enjoyed our chats, I always got more out them than he did. Tammy, so sorry for you and your family. Know that Ted was loved by his colleagues, absolutely one of the best people to know, to work with, and call a friend.

My condolences go out to Tammy and the entire Wolf family. I had the privilege of meeting Ted about 20 years ago when he relocated to Palm Harbor while I was working for HP. He was one of those people you just connected with and it was absolutely effortless. He cared about and loved his family and dog Bandit. I will miss the times we spent hanging out on the water or by the pool drinking a cold Corona with that twist of lime. I will never forget the time when Tammy and Ted told me they got engaged. They were on my boat that day and the sparkle in their eyes could have lit up even the darkest of nights. I will miss you Ted and will never forget you!

Danielle & Steve (friends)

July 28, 2018, 12:00 am

From the first time Tammy spoke of Ted I knew my best friend was love struck. From the first time we saw Tammy & Ted together we knew it was true love. We were lucky to have known Ted, to share a friendship for over 10 years. Ted was a caring, charismatic, inspirational hero, husband and friend. Ted, may you rest in peace, may our special memories help us find comfort until we are together again.

“You may be gone from our sight but you are never gone from our hearts.”

My condolences and prayers to Teddy's brothers and sisters and Teddy's family. I always remembered Teddy as long and lanky with very white blonde wavy hair and such a cutie. He always had a huge laughing smile on his face. And I remember the in-lays in his shoes that he wore for his flat feet! God bless Teddy as I write this with tears in my eyes as he is gone way too soon. We had a lot of fun growing up on Southway Drive and Teddy was part of that wonderful time.

I'm from Canada and had only the opportunity to work with Ted through the years virtually. I always respected his professionalism, but it was through a major project that we both worked on, was when I got to know Ted on a personal level. Ted proudly talked about his family and his home in Tarpon Springs. As many others have mentioned he truly was a great mentor and a friend. He will be greatly missed.
