Thaddeus T. (Ted) Gregarczyk, longtime Shrewsbury resident, passed away unexpectedly at home on Tuesday, February 16, 2021. He was predeceased by his beloved wife of 70yrs Irene A. (Michalak), who passed in December of 2019.

Thaddeus was born and raised in Worcester, graduating from Worcester Boys Trade where he specialized in Welding. He received certification as a welder before enlisting in the U.S. Army during WWII. Thaddeus proudly served his country for three years, most of his military time served in the European theater, until his honorable discharge in1946. He married Irene in 1949 and they settled in Shrewsbury to begin their family.

His family would like to specially thank Linda Palmerino for her constant thoughtfulness.

Dear Carolyn, Maria and Families,
My sincere sympathy on the loss of your Dad and Grandfather. I will miss all of his stories about his boyhood, his times in the Army overseas and mostly his fond remembrance that he shared of his mother's cooking. I only wished I had written some of them down.
Thinking of all of you at this difficult time.
Love Linda Palmerino
