Theodore Grundmeier Obituary

Ted Grundmeier, 80, of Lakewood and Arriba, CO, passed away on November 20, 2023. He was born September 13, 1943, in San Diego, CA. He was the son of John H. and Lucille Fritts Grundmeier and brother of Cheryl Pazier, who preceded him in death.

Ted grew up in the Arvada/Wheatridge area, attending Fruitdale Elementary, Arvada Jr. High and Wheatridge High Schools. He taught Social Studies at Arvada High School for more than 20 years. He was an adjunct professor for Lesley College for approx. 15 years.  In his retirement years he spent about half of his time working on cars and other projects in his school building in Arriba, serving as Mayor of the Town of Arriba for a number of years, and volunteering with the Northeast Lincoln County Fire District as EMT, fireman, and driver.

Ted was an adventurous and unique individual who had a great sense of humor. You know some groaner “bad” jokes? So did Ted, he knew them all! He was known for his various collections. He was loyal to friends and family, strongly believed in the value of education, and loved to entertain those around him.

He is survived by his loving wife, Debi Grundmeier, and his children, daughter Trini Grundmeier (Jerry) Clark, his son, Jarrid (Leticia) Gross, 3 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, and various in-laws and cousins. Ted will be deeply missed by his family and friends,

A memorial service to celebrate Ted's life will be held at the Arvada Community Recreation Center, located at 6842 Wadsworth, Arvada, CO 80003 on Saturday, Dec. 9th from 1:30 – 3:30. There will be an additional reception at the Arriba Fire Dept. on Sunday, Dec. 10th. We hope these services will be a time to remember Ted, honor his memory and share anecdotes about him.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to the volunteer fire department he was so active in: Northeast Lincoln County Fire Dept. at 218 Elm St., Arriba, Co. These contributions will help support the important work of the fire district in their community. A box to collect contributions will be available at the Denver Service.

Ted Grundmeier's presence will be greatly missed, but his memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. He was what he was.
