Theodore David “Ted” Ficocello, 88, of Cumberland died, May 23, 2023, at his home.

He was born August 4, 1934, in Minneapolis, MN to Anthony and Olive (DuBois) Ficocello.

He was married on September 4, 1954, to Joyce Brown.

Ted enjoyed correcting the professional baseball players on TV. He loved asking people if they knew how to speak Italian; if the answer was yes, his response would be “Get in the trunk!” He also enjoyed life by the lake and his winters in Yuma, AZ. Ted’s wish was to die at home peacefully, and that is what he did.

He is survived by his wife, Joyce; son, Doug (Carrie) Ficocello; daughter, Lori Ficocello (Jim Seabrook); grandchildren: Chelsea Worsham, and Mitch Ficocello; great grandchildren: Teagan, Everly, Cruz, Hudson, and Olive; brother, Arnie (Maxine) Ficocello; numerous nieces and nephews, and many other family and friends. Ted was preceded in death by parents; and brother, Richard.

In honoring Ted’s wishes, no funeral services are being planned at this time.

Skinner Funeral Home of Cumberland is serving the family.
