Theodore Charles von Dameck
Theodore (Ted) Charles von Dameck, 75 of Blacksburg, VA passed away May 11, 2012 at Lewis-Gale Montgomery Hospital in Blacksburg. Ted was born on January 8, 1937 in Manhatten in New York City, NY, and was a son of the late Harry C. and Lois Nobles von Dameck. Ted loved the arts, whether it was canvas, theatre, or poetry. He moved to Blacksburg after he retired as Senior Vice President of Piccadilly Cafeterias to go to graduate school at VA Tech to continue his studies in Architecture. Ted was loved by many and will be missed by even more. Ted was a favorite with his grandchildren, playing ball or telling stories. When Chris, his eldest grandson broke a window with a ball he cheered him on with glee. He had a favorite name for his eldest grandaughter, calling her Pocahantas, while he was Geronimo. Ben was Where Moon? Clint was Hey Boy Kamren would tell him Papa, youre a Bee , he would respond Im the best, Each grandchild was special and he had a fond remembrance of each. He was a talented architect, loving all things Frank Lloyd Wright, and architecture that was uniquely different. A very distinguished man who preferred a low profile, some of his work has been seen by millions such as the Pete Marovich Assembly Center on the campus of LSU in Baton Rouge, LA. Ted was a licensed architect in 14 states. His artwork captured some of this freespirit style, and expressed his emotions in others. He was, and always will be Papa Ted. May his spirit soar, may his canvas be filled in the journey he embarks. Hearts are shattered with the loss of this great gentle loving man. He is survived by his wife, Glenda Stallings von Dameck of Blacksburg, four daughters, Tracia von Dameck of Baton Rouge, LA, Sue Doring and husband Russ of Fuquay Varina, NC, Bonnie Keller and husband Rich of Manassas, Carla McNeal and husband Erin of Riner and eleven grandchildren, Chris, Ben, Alex, Kamren, Clint, Marti, Erin, Ashton, Dominic, Emily and Riley.
