Dear brother to Dana (Gus) Tallo, Barbara (Sam) Macaluso, and Paula Summers. Uncle and great uncle to many nieces and nephews. Teddy or "Butch" as everyone knew him was a devoted family man with a strong Christian faith. He proudly served his country in the Army and was a Vietnam Veteran. He was a retired iron worker and coal miner. He and his wife enjoyed traveling across the country and were blessed with a special trip to Italy. Butch was a friend to many always a person you could depend on. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren teaching them about woodworking or one of his other many interests and talents. There was very little he was not good at. He was always there for us, offering some valuable life advice or sharing a funny story. Some of our favorites were his stories about his childhood growing up in Cutler IL. When he wasn't with his family, he devoted his time to his church where he enjoyed being a part of the security team or having coffee with his dear friends Pastor Bob and Pastor John. He was always helping others in need and sharing his amazing life experience. He will be deeply missed. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date and time. Private burial to be held with family. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to Teen Challenge in Pekin Illinois.
