March 21 1943 January 21 2020
On January 21, 2020, Dad was deployed to serve in heaven. To say he was the most devoted husband to his best friend, the best father to his three daughters and the most loving papa to his two grandchildren is an understatement. He was fiercely loyal and committed to those he loved and would go to the ends of the earth to protect them. He held his loved ones so close to his heart and would want us to do that with him now. Growing up in Manhattan New York, Dad set off on his own journey at age 18 and joined the Marines. While stationed in Camp Lejeune North Carolina, it was there that he met his friends for life: Dino, Paul and Richie. On his frequent visits home, one in particular, in 1963 in which he accompanied Richie, Richie introduced him to his cousin Bonita. Dad was immediately taken by Bonita. They dated for six months and he asked for her hand in marriage in which she declined. She felt terrible and a few months later she asked him to marry her and he declined. They eventually realized that they were soulmates and married on October 16, 1965. In 1973, they chose Berlin Connecticut to raise their three daughters and wonderful dog Scruffy. Dad and mom built the perfect home and family, minus the white picket fence. Dad, we will miss most your kind heart, your strong hugs, your courage, your tough shell yet gentle soul, your constant words of wisdom, your nurturing and your meticulous ways. We promise to carry your legacy with us every day until we see you again. Dad leaves behind his best friend and wife of 55 years, Bonita, his three daughters Hope, Dana and Jenny, his two son-in-law‘s Don and Matt and his two adoring grandchildren Kaileen and Ryan. He also leaves behind countless family members and friends. To send a memorial gift to the family of Theodore “Ted” Apostole please visit our Sympathy Store.
