OBITUARY – Theodore “Ted” Fucci – West Columbia – Services for Theodore “Ted” Fucci, 91, of West Columbia, will be private. Woodridge Funeral Home of Lexington is assisting the family.
Ted Fucci passed away November 1, 2023. Born in Newark, NJ, he was a son of the late Peter Paul Fucci and Lillian Bafundi Fucci.
In his early years, Ted served as an air traffic controller in the Air Force during the Korean War. After serving his country he went on to become an entrepreneur owning several independent businesses. He loved inspiring people to be confident and believe in themselves. He was an avid reader, chess player, and had a lifelong love of learning.
While he had a passion for many different genres of film and music, nothing made him happier than singing karaoke. His signature tune was, "My Way", by Frank Sinatra. He was a natural charmer and had the rare ability to make everyone he met feel special. He embraced his life to the fullest. Most of all he did it his way.
Ted is survived by his daughter, Alana Fucci; and her mother, Sarah; daughter, Crystal Theodora Dorsey; son, Daniel J. Fucci; daughter, Angela Fucci; and daughter, Kimberly Fucci; grandchildren, Devin, Theodore “Thayne”, and Kenley. He also had a large and loving extended family. Ted was predeceased by his parents.
