Theodore J. Haupricht, age 97, peacefully went home to our Lord, December 31, 2019. Ted was born in Toledo, Ohio to Theodore and Jesse Haupricht on August 12, 1922. Ted grew up in Swanton, graduated from Swanton High School, and enlisted in the army during WWII. He was a proud “Battle Baby” who fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He was a lifetime member of the American Legion and an active member of the Honor Guard. Recognized wherever he went proudly displaying his WWII Veteran’s hat, Ted was also one of the area’s first Honor Flight participants. That experience remained as one of his most cherished memories. Ted was always so proud of his grandchildren, with a house full of pictures and newspaper clippings gathered over the years and delighted in his great-grandchildren.
Ted is preceded in death by his loving wife of 57 years, Florence Barbara Haupricht. He is survived by his three children: Debra (Robert Jr.) McKie, Bradley (Theresa) Haupricht, Karen Haupricht, 6 Grandchildren: Kenny (Beth) Fulton, Lisa Laverne, Bradley Jr. (Lara) Haupricht, Jessica (Ryan) Arnold, Corynn (James) Burton, Derek McKie. and 14 Great-grandchildren, Dylan, Jamie, Carisa, Corey, Jaccie, Audrey, Ellie, Derek Jr., Sawyer, Cole, Emma, Colette, Veronica, and Felicity. A private Mass with Military Rites will be held at St. Richard's Parish.
