Arthur was born in Quincy, to the late Arthur F. and Elizabeth C. (Henderson) Anastasi. Raised and educated there, he attended Quincy High School. He lived in Quincy for most of his life.

Ted was proud to have served in the United States Navy as a Boiler Technician Second Class aboard the USS Hugh Purvis (DD-709) in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

He enjoyed maintaining his home, working on cars, and in his spare time, building model airplanes. A jack-of-all-trades, he was skilled with his hands and had a knack for fixing things.

Most of all, he was completely devoted to his late wife, Cynthia, and his family.

  • Rest in peace Teddy. You were the best

  • I had the pleasure of knowing Ted when he worked at One Beacon Street. It was always a pleasure speaking with him and listening to stories about his wife, who he so adored, and his family, which he was so very proud of.
    Ted was a gently giant and I’m sure will be missed by many.

  • I am your daughter’s neighbor and even though I didn’t know you well, I know you were a great dad and loved so much by your family.

  • What a beautiful tribute to your father. I’m sorry to hear of his passing. Glad you had the opportunity to be at his bedside.

  • Sorry to hear about Dads passing.

  • I’m saddened to read of Ted’s passing. I was a school chum South Jr. High and church youth activities. I met Ted at Home Depot in recent years and he was surprised that I remembered him. He was a was a gentle giant. My condolences to his family.

  • I recognize Ted’s picture from when I worked at Stop and Shop several years ago. He was one of my favorite customers and I would often look forward to the times he would come in. I worked the self scans and would often spend the majority of his checkout with him. He would insist on bagging his own groceries, but was always up for asking questions about me or telling me stories of his time in the Navy or his life. He was especially proud of his grandchildren. My own grandfather had died several years before I left Stop & Shop, so I enjoyed the grandfather energy he often provided me. Such a lovely, kind man. I am so sorry to hear of his passing.
