Affectionately regarded as “Ted”, Theodore graduated from Howard High School “Fighting Wild Bulls” in Ocala, Florida in 1964. He enlisted in the United States Navy and proudly served his country until he received an honorable discharge. He later went on to attend Florida A & M University in Tallahassee, Florida where he pledged Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Theodore enjoyed a longtime career with T & E Network Interface, IBM, and Erickson Consulting until his retirement in 2000.
