91 years old, passed away peacefully on October 7 2022. He was the husband to the late Jean Evelyn (Underwood) Green.
Born in Lawrence, MA. and raised in Malden, MA. Teddy was the son of the late William Theodore Green and the late Mary (Rae) Green & the grandson of the late Gustaf Theodore Green and the late Alma (Lundberg) Green. Teddy graduated from Malden High School and studied at Northeastern University.
He served proudly in the United States Airforce from 1950-1954. Teddy dedicated 32 years of his life as an Officer to the Malden Police Department protecting and serving the residents of the City of Malden.
In his golden retirement years, Teddy found pleasure in refurbishing and detailing wooden canoes, going fishing and camping in the beautiful state of Maine. Teddy enjoyed having coffee on his deck or going to the diner to meet up with his coffee buddies. He found comfort in the simple things in life, like the beauty of the Kangamangus Highway “The Kanks” as he called it. Teddy would share videos so excitedly from an eagles nest cam that he watched on his computer daily. Teddy was an avid Nascar and Boston Patriots fan. He was a passionate and active member of AA and went out of his way to always help those in need. Teddy was committed in assisting others in the AA program, as it saved him in his struggles.
Teddy was the cherished father of his daughter Gail Green, his son Gary Green & his wife Valerie, his son Christopher & his wife Genevieve. Teddy is survived by his loving, caring brother Charles Green & his wife Sandy along with his neices & nephew. Teddy was the beloved Grampy to Alicia, Jimmy, Alana, Bobby, Tyavanna, Julian, Tiernan and Matilda. He was predeceased by his adored granddaughter Samantha.
Teddy doted upon his great grandchildren Leandrah and Logan. He was a great Grampy “Popsie” and they were the twinkle in his baby blue eyes.
Teddy was an animal lover; he missed his little pomeranian JR terribly and now can finally meet him at the rainbow bridge. He was a loving grampa to his great granddoggy Theo (Theodore). Teddy wore a lot of hats in his lifetime, so whether you knew him as Grampy, Popsie, Officer Green, Mr. Green, William, Ted, Teddy or as he was lovingly referred to as Teddybear, either way, you were blessed to have known him, he will be dearly missed by many.
A night of remembrance will be held at the Weir-MacCuish Golden Rule Funeral Home, 144 Salem St, Malden on Tuesday, October 18th, from 2 pm– 6 pm, with a prayer service at 5:30.
In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of William Theodore Green.
