It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Edwin (Ted) Archie Zavitz on Tuesday November 8th, 2022. Ted was predeceased by his parents Edwin E Zavitz (1987) and Caroline Mae Zavitz (2004) and survived by his son Edwin (Ted) James Zavitz (Julie Adamson), sister Joan Kemp, brother Larry Zavitz (Bev), and his nephews Karl Kemp, Glen Kemp, Robert Zavitz, and Chris Zavitz. Ted was born in London, Ontario and in his teens, moved to Dorchester where he lived the remainder of his life. Thank you to his dear friends and neighbors on Dale Drive who have been a huge part of his life. You were family to him. We are forever grateful for everything you did for him. Ted was an avid reader, enjoyed the Theatre, the proprietor of Ted’s Tavern, and long-standing member of the North Dorchester Optimist Club. He was proud he had worked in the Moving Industry for 50+ years, helping families settle into their new homes around the country. Our deepest thanks to the dedicated staff of LHSC who cared for Ted over the past two years and during the last month, kept him comfortable during his final days. Cremation has taken place.
