MOHAWK – Mr. Tendewsz “Ted” Alexanderowicz, age 96, of Mohawk, passed away peacefully on Sunday afternoon, August 23, 2020, in the privacy and comfort of his home. At the time of his passing, he was surrounded by the love and support of his devoted family always at his side. Born on September 15, 1923, Ted was the son of the late Joseph and Victoria (Cioch) Alexanderowicz. He attended Herkimer schools. On May 31, 1947, Ted was wed to Mildred Gala at Sts. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church in Herkimer and together they shared in seventy years of marriage. Mildred passed away May 16, 2017. In his early years, to help with the war effort, Ted enlisted with the United States Navy and then the United States Army. He was retired military, honorably discharged as Sergeant First Class. He later took a position with Little Joe’s Dairy and retired as a machinist/sander with Remington Arms in Ilion. He was very devoted to his faith and was a parishioner at Sts.

He is survived by his beloved family: his daughter and son-in-law, Gail and Angelos Tsiatsos, of New Smyrna Beach, FL; his sons and daughters-in-law, Theodore “Ted” and Loralee Alexander, of Beaver Falls, PA and John and Deborah Alexanderowicz, of Vernon, CT; his grandchildren, Edward Wells-Tsiatsos and his wife, Julie, Jeffrey Alexanderowicz, Kerry and Ronald Kretz, Lisa Hess, JR Alexanderowicz, Amy Alexanderowicz and Seth Alexanderowicz; and one great-grandson, Logan Kretz.
