Theodore John Kozlosky passed away on August 21. 2023. He was born on September 23, 1951 at Bradford Hospital in McKean County, PA, the son of Theodore and the late Geraldine (Sierzega) Kozlosky.
On August 14, 2023, he married Susan Emery.
Ted graduated from Central Catholic High School in DuBois, PA with the "Class of 1969". He also graduated from Edinboro University, where he earned his Teaching Degree.
He was blessed by many good friends, and possessed many outstanding talents. He taught Graphic Communications/Art Appreciation at Jeff Tech for over thirty years. He was also an artist, private airplane pilot, actor, and musician.
As a lifelong learner, he had a true zest for life. He was always open to asking and answering questions. While many people spend their lives "dreaming" of doing great things, he pursued his amazing interests, and accomplished his ambitions (with great enthusiasm)! In addition to his great love of teaching, the following are but a few of his accomplishments. He hiked across the United States and beyond, panned for gold in Alaska, achieved scuba diving certification, and actively studied historical events (particularly the Civil War and World War II).
Ted is credited with a speaking role of a Confederate Lieutenant in the 1993 "Gettysburg" motion picture. He also portrayed General George Pickett in the A&E adaptation of "Pickett's Charge". Numerous images of him wearing his Civil War uniform are displayed at the Civil War Museum in Gettysburg, PA.
Ted is survived by his father, Theodore Kozlosky of Falls Creek, PA. He has had a fine example of a loving, caring, honest, and steadfast Father throughout his entire life.
He is survived by two sisters: Geraldine Rector of Falls Creek, PA, and Mary Ann (John) Sheets of Sparks, NV. He is also survived by two nieces and two nephews: Dr. Heidi (Dr. Dan) Bee and children of Sharpsville, PA, Erik Doutt of Seneca, PA, Jude (Erica) Sheets of Weirton, WV, and Sossity (Luis) Flamand and children of Greenville, SC. He is also survived by his good friend, Mason.
Ted lived his life "in a good way", and enjoyed his many friends and loved ones. Upon leaving us for a time here, it can be imagined that his journey will now continue "ON TO THE NEXT ADVENTURE".
There will be no public visitation or services held due to Ted's wishes.
Arrangements are under the direction of the Leo Nedza Funeral Home, DuBois, PA.
