Ted J. Niecikoski

Date of Death: December 27, 2019

Date of Birth: March 29, 1927

Biography:

Ted J. Niecikoski of Georgetown, Maine passed peacefully at Mid Coast Hospital in the early afternoon of December 27, 2019, three months shy of his 93rd birthday. He lived most of his life in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, having been born on March 29, 1927 in Kingston, Pennsylvania. The last of the six children of Anthony and Bronislawa Maslowski Nieczykowski, Ted was predeceased by his five brothers and one sister. Upon his sister Genevieve's passing, he moved to Georgetown where he had resided for the last eight years with his niece Leona Dufour and her husband George.


Ted was graduated from Coughlin High School in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania in 1944, some three months past his seventeenth birthday. Soon after he turned eighteen in 1945, he was drafted into the U.S. Army, training in Colorado and later Kansas. He said on the day of the Hiroshima bombing, he and his platoon were basically told not to report to their assignments so he spent that day bowling with a friend, each setting the pins for the other. When discharged a year later, he had been promoted to staff sergeant.


As the result of an after school high school job, he learned how to be a dental ceramicist and spent most of his working life at a dental lab in Wilkes-Barre. When the partners of that lab retired, he took over its remaining few years until his retirement. Then he decided on a part time position taking license photos with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles in Wilkes-Barre. Upon that retirement at age eighty, the state of Pennsylvania awarded him a special certificate of appreciation. He lived with and was a companion to his widowed sister until her death in 2011. That fall he moved to Georgetown living with his niece and her husband.


Uncle Ted was known to many in Georgetown. His gentle manner made him many friends. He enjoyed watching the deer, noting the times of the tides, and eating lunch at his favorite restaurants in Bath and Brunswick. He also enjoyed crossword puzzles, sudoku, and playing the lottery.


Uncle Ted is survived by his niece Leona Dufour, her husband George F. Dufour, nephew George J, niece Alexandra J. Dufour and her husband Michael Ayers and their daughter Simone Ayers. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and great, great nieces and nephews.


No final arrangements have as yet been made. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to the Georgetown Working League.
