Loving son, husband, brother and devoted friend, Ted, was born February 28, 1961 in Norman, Oklahoma, moving to Long Island, NY at a young age and eventually Albany, NY a few years after graduating high school. 

Ted was married to the love of his life, Jennifer, who he wed on a beautiful spring day, May 21, 2000.

He is survived by his loving wife, Jennifer (née: Edwards), beloved sisters; Roberta Leffler-Kluger (Marc) and Laura Denning (Kenneth).  Step-siblings; Linda Albach (Jeff), Arnold Joseph Ehrlich (Monica), and Karen Soria (Robert).  Nephews (Zachary, Jack) and nieces (Taylor, Jessica) and adored aunt, Mary Gosline.  Cherished son of predeceased parents, Theodore Leffler Sr. and Kay Ehrlich. 

Teddy was a lover of life, the awakening warmth of spring and the joy of the natural world around him.  Growing up, Teddy worked hard to become an Eagle Scout, sang with his high school chorus and ran varsity cross country and varsity field and track as well as several marathons.  Teddy enjoyed writing poetry and was an avid photographer in capturing the beauty of the Albany sky, his beautiful wife and his beloved Washington Park annual Tulip Fest. 

Through the years, Teddy was passionate in sharing his stunning photos of tulips, sunsets and sunrises, the magic of the moon and the natural beauty around us.  For his family, he was the keeper of memories and could always be depended on to remember the stories that we have cherished through the years.

Ted loved being in the park, especially when the flowers were in bloom. He had a passion for music, local festivals (particularly Tulip Fest), concerts, hanging out in clubs listening to bands play, going to the drive-in, and sports (especially baseball).

Ted was a kind and gentle man, who had many friends and cherished all of them. He had an amazing memory for detail about past events and rarely forgot anyone he met. His presence will be missed by everyone who had the good fortune to know him.

A small memorial service will be held for family and friends at a future time.
