Dear Mr. Paluch, thank you.....thank you for sharing your time. Thank you for sharing your memories. Thank you for taking a moment to look over photographs, from 1943, and making me laugh.

To anyone who reads this, Ted served with my great uncle(David Lee Lucas), who died from wounds he received at Malmedy. I have about a hundred photos from before they shipped out. Ted was helping me identify the people. In one of the photos Lee and Teds name appeared together. When I asked which one was Ted he gave me a look and said jokingly "Kid it was 1943....I smoked and had hair, since then I have went through a world war and cant hardly see out of one eye....cut me some slack".

I cannot say thank you enough, I am so sad to see that you have passed. I will travel to see you in Washington Crossing soon. I pray that you and Lee Lucas have reunited in peace.

Tom and I will really miss our frequent dinners with Uncle Ted at Bobby's & Tucker's while watching the Phillies or Eagles games. Arguing about politics sometimes caused us to lose track of the game but that was part of the charm of a day with Uncle Ted.

We all loved his laugh, his feistiness, his heart of gold and his passion for family, friends and military. He was always a legend with us but later on he became a legend around the world. He would always end any goodbye with "I love you" and I always responded "I love you too, see you next time". God willing, we will.

On behalf of the Benjamin Franklin Post 405 of the American Legion at the Union League of which Ted Paluch was an honored member, we send our sincere condolences to his family, friends and fellow veterans at his loss. We were deeply saddened at the news of Ted's passing. Post Commander Jon Peterson and Vice Commander Andy Waskie had visited him shortly before he passed on and were able to share some joyous moments with him for a final time.
Ted was a dedicated Legionnaire and always a role model and a positive influence.
We honor him as a gallant hero of WWII service and as Malmedy survivor in the Battle of the Bulge. We will miss him greatly, but are glad we had the opportunity to share his life too.Our deepest sympathy to all at the passing of a great American.

We will miss uncle Ted's unique laugh, his brown fedora his caring ways and before hanging up from phone conversations he would always say "love you". Rest in peace uncle Ted. We love you!
