Tribute & Message From The Family


Theodore Walter Bilodeau, born 1929 In Windsor Massachusetts, long time resident of Concord, passed away peacefully on February 19th at the age of 91.

A brilliant engineer, working for, among others, Nasa (on Apollo 11), and The Thinking Machine Corporation that developed one of the first CM-2 parallel processing Supercomputers which was featured in an exhibit at New York's Museum of Modern Art. As well, he was an expert vegetable gardener and outstanding cook, champion arm wrestler and successful amateur boxer. He was a proud veteran, serving in the US Army for many years.

As one of his esteemed employers once said, "Ted Bilodeau has left us for that great big fab lab in the sky,and is probably now designing a better gate for St. Peter. If we had a hard problem to solve he said no problem, if we had an impossible problem he said, "Well, let's work this one!"

He is survived by His nine children, Patricia, Melissia, Sean, Rebecca,Thomas, Mary, Christian, Caitlin, Jessamyn, and 32 grandchildren and great grandchildren, as well as his brother Ronald.

He will be missed, but had a long adventurous life.

And as he always said, "Don't take any wooden nickels!"

May he rest in peace

Services will be private
