Tadeusz "Teddy" Kajkowski, 62, of Passadumkeag, passed away July 11, 2016 unexpectedly.
Born in Poland on May 6, 1954 the youngest child of Adam and Filomena Kajkowski, Teddy came to the United States in his early twenties in search of better opportunities after having earned a surveying degree. He settled in New Jersey where he met his wife and started a family. In 1981 he moved to Maine, which reminded him of his homeland. A tireless worker, holding jobs in numerous fields over the years and willing to do any job to provide for his family. His last career change proved his most enjoyable as a Registered Nurse. His light-hearted disposition would quickly make him a favorite among both the staff and patients. He spent the last 15 years providing patient care at the Dorothea Dix Psychiatric Center in Bangor.
An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping with his sons. Many of his interests included flying Cessnas, ultralight aircraft, hovercrafting, puttering on his 4-wheeler, keeping bees and gardening.
Teddy is survived by his wife of 38 years, Krystyna Kajkowski; his son Ted Kajkowski Jr. and wife Alyssa of Hermon; stepson Edward Troscianiec of Bangor; stepdaughter Elizabeth (Troscianiec) Gillis and husband Ralph of Londonderry, NH; his brother Karol Kajkowski of Poland; and grandchildren Ashlyn, Alayna, Alicia, Brady and Ryan.
