On December 28, 2021, Theodore Shepke passed away at age 58. Mr. Shepke worked 33 years in Anne Arundel County Public Works, Highway Division, and was past Vice President of Union AFSCME # 582, currently serving as Treasurer and Shop Steward. It seemed like Ted knew everyone, and everyone knew Ted! He had the true Gift of Gab and could converse with everyone. He could make a six hour road trip seem like two hours just because he kept on talking. Ted enjoyed traveling the country, riding his Honda motorcycle, and taking crabs to his Mom's for a family feast. He loved to tinker with vehicles, especially his dump truck, and always had a project going.
"Ted was always willing to help anyone, and his nieces and nephews were his life!"
