Theodore W. Billings
1937 - 2014
Theodore W. Billings, 76, of Kenosha, passed away on Wednesday, April 2, 2014. at his residence.
Born on Dec. 4, 1937, in Kenosha, he was the son of the late Theodore R. and Florence (Hartl) Billings.
Ted proudly served in the U. S. Army from May 1, 1959, until his honorable discharge on May 15, 1962.
On Jan. 21, 1961, he was united in marriage to Donna M. Weisner at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church.
For over 30 years, Ted was employed with the U.S. Postal Service. He began his career as a mail carrier and retired in 1992 as a clerk supervisor.
After retirement, Ted took up wood carving as a hobby; he had a passion for WWII airplanes and created a collection of over 400, which he took great pleasure in sharing. He also looked forward to his weekly visits to the Heroes Cafe; at Festival Foods and also attending the annual Army Security Agency-Chitose reunions. Ted was active with the Southern Wisconsin All Airborne Chapter and volunteered with RSVP. His patriotism was admirable but never took precedence over the joy that he found spending time with his family.
Ted will be deeply missed by his wife, Donna; their three children, Steven (Sarah) Billings, Mark (Brent Bagniefski) Billings and Linda (Rodney) Davis; a sister, Jean Weisner; four grandchildren, Justeen (Joseph) Jolley, Andrew Billings, Bryce Davis and Katy Billings and his three great-grandchildren, Sydney, Colton and Makenna Jolley.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a stillborn son, Teddy, and a brother-in-law, Bill Weisner.
