Theodore McCracken, age 88, passed away on January 17, 2020 in Marlton, NJ surrounded by those he loved most. Ted, a proud Marine, was a man of conviction and kindness.
He was born and raised in Philadelphia and has been a resident of Mount Laurel for the past 40 years. He was an avid Phillies fan and loved to spend time at Willowbrook Country Club where he worked and golfed. More than anything he loved to make people laugh, if something filled his life the most it was joy. Ted was a friend to everyone. The most important part of his life was with his family and he cherished every minute with them. He will be remembered as a man who never complained and always put others first.
Ted was predeceased by his daughter, Margaret Ballerini. He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Kathleen McCracken (nee Bosch); his daughters, Kathleen McCracken (Don Buesing) and Patricia Calega (Robert); his grandchildren, John (Brett), Nicole (Kyle), Joseph, Daniel (Jamie) and Zachary and his great grandchildren, Michael and Vincent.
