Theodore (Ted) J. Lakoski, Sr.
April 11, 1924 – January 25, 2017
Ted Lakoski was born in New York City on April 11th, 1924.
He was predeceased by his beloved wife Vera of 59 years, and their son Robert Lakoski.
Survivors include a son Ted Jr. of Leesburg Indiana; daughters Joan Lakoski Mayercik of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Katherine Lakoski Loveland of Melbourne, Australia. He is also survived by eight grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and his dear friend and companion Germaine M. Pearlberg.
Ted served as an ensign in the U.S. Navy during World War II.
After receiving a Bachelor of Engineering from Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY, he subsequently joined IBM. In his career with IBM he was associated with the manufacture of semiconductor products. He was also awarded a Sloan Fellowship at M.I.T. in 1961.
His most notable assignment was the plant manager of the IBM East Fishkill New York Facility. At the time of his retirement from IBM he was plant manager at the IBM Manassas, Virginia facility.
Ted subsequently joined DuPont and served as a Plant Manager in the Research Triangle Park facility. He retired from DuPont and joined Alcoa in Rancho Bernardo, California.
In June of 1992, Ted and Vera moved to the Peridia Golf and Country Club in Manatee County. While a resident there, he enjoyed golf, reading, and taking frequent trips with Vera to visit their children and grandchildren.
He was a communicant at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic Church services.
Ted (our Dad, Grandpa, and Great-Grandpa) will be greatly missed. His devotion to his family was ever present and had an amazing ability to make those around him feel special.
He is off to meet and be with Vera forever…
