Gordon "Ted" Edward Fickley

September 3, 1925March 25, 2020

After a long and happy life, Ted passed away at St. Peter’s Hospital.

Loving son of Clarence and Alice Fickley; dear brother to David (all deceased); loving husband of 68 years to Kathleen, wonderful father to Gordon Fickley, Peggy and Kevin Sumner, Jane and Joe Groleau; proud and delighted grandfather to Joe, Jeff, Jillian and Tyson and great grandfather to Abrielle, Kyran, Maizen, Griffin, Hunter and Bennett. Also left to mourn, sister-in-law Eleanor Peart and all his nieces and nephews.

Ted was a quiet, rational and dignified man who wouldn’t want to live in a world with no baseball. We were so blessed to have him as our husband, father and grandfather.

In deference to dad’s practical nature, there will be a private funeral. As an expression of sympathy, a donation to Mission Services or Food Share would be so appreciated. With thanks to the wonderful St. Peter’s staff on 3 West.
