Monocacy TU members,
The Monocacy Chapter lost a dear friend and dedicated conservationist on October 25th. Ted had many accomplishments in his life, (which you can read about in the official obituary below) but we knew him as a passionate angler who was generous with his time, knowledge and warm smile. There is no doubt he will be missed by many. From the Monocacy Chapter, Godspeed and Thanks Doc.
Theodore Burger peacefully passed away on a beautiful October morning. As a former flight surgeon, physician, and educator, he lived a long and productive life by helping those in need. A devoted fly fisherman, woodworker, gardener, and outdoorsman, he could be found feeding the area deer and birds, but also cursing at the hungry squirrels that stole all of the bird food. His unique sense of humor and famous quip, "You'll see, you'll see," will be missed by those who loved him which include his devoted and caring wife, of which he shared 59 years of marriage, two daughters and their husbands, and three beautiful grandchildren. Though known by many, Teddy was a solitary man and so the family plans on a private memorial to honor his life. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Temple/St. Luke's School of Medicine at slhn.org or to Shriner's Children's Hospital of Philadelphia at donate.lovetotherescue.org .
