OXFORD – Teddy T. Soini, aged 69, of Oxford, passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 30, 2023, in his home surrounded by his loving family, after a period of declining health. He was born and raised in Fitchburg, graduating from Fitchburg High School in 1972.  He was the son of the late Toivo and Marcelline (Spaulding) Soini.

Ted is survived by his devoted companion of 32 years, Jeanne A. Bilodeau of Oxford, and their two cats, Willow and Lance. He leaves behind four "darling" daughters with his former wife, Shelley A. Wyman of Gardner: Stacey A. Bellabarba and her husband Steven of Royalston, Heather L. Kaddy and her husband Rodney of Templeton, Samantha J. Sullivan and her husband Matthew of Paxton, and Sabrina R. Soini of Athol. Teddy also leaves behind two beloved grandchildren, Nicole A. Bellabarba and Soren O. Sullivan

He was predeceased by his sister, Linda Marois, in 2008; his brother, Billy Soini, in 2009; and his brother-in-law, Andy Brehme, in 2021. He is survived by sisters- and brothers-in-law: Michele Bilodeau, Cutter Wyman, Denise Brehme, Joan McCaffrey, and John McCaffrey. Additionally, Teddy is survived by nieces and nephews: Nicole Jordan, Matthew Brehme and his wife Tricia, Erin Lundell and her husband Karl, Eric McCaffrey and his wife Erica, and Danielle Nakhshin and her husband Mitchell, along with many other nieces and nephews.

Ted operated several businesses in the land clearing industry for over fifty years.  His most notable achievements were his involvement in projects like Gillette Stadium and his role in the cleanup during the devastating tornado in western Massachusetts in 2011. He owned and operated Soini Corp in Oxford Ma with his partner Jeanne Bilodeau for the past 10 years, which he proudly described as "bringing sunshine to the forest."

In his younger years, he also worked on his family's farm and at Digital Equipment Corporation. He was a member of the 4-H Club and enjoyed gardening, cooking, and family trips to Cape Cod. Ted was a season ticket holder for the New England Patriots and part of the Patriots' faithful. He loved hiking with friends, especially in the White Mountains, where he accomplished the impressive feat of climbing all 48 of the 4000-foot mountains.

Teddy T. Soini will be missed not only by his family but also by his wide circle of friends.  Making people laugh was one of his greatest pleasures, and he expressed his love for others through the food he lovingly prepared. He will be remembered as the life of the party who always made everyone feel welcome. He was very sociable and enjoyed speaking with everyone he met, taking a keen interest in other people’s lives and often remembered their stories. His work friends, especially those at Soini Corp, will forever remember him as a dedicated and passionate leader who not only cared deeply about the success of the business but also about the well-being of each employee. Ted considered his work colleagues and employees as part of his extended family.
