Theodore 'Teddy' Fish


Beverly — Theodore “Teddy” Fish was the greatest of great superheroes. On the outside, he was a lean, mean, Menkes fighting machine. On the inside, he was a big softie who really loved his Mom, Dad, and occasionally his dog, Tuna. He may have only lived one year, but he fit in a lifetime of happiness, kisses and smiles. His eyes sparkled and his dimples melted hearts near and far. He was a social media hotshot with celebrity friends, and spent his free time bringing awareness to the terrible disease, Menkes, which took his life on May 5, 2014. But he fought hard — superhero hard.

Teddy will be terribly missed by all — clearly, but especially by his parents, Mary E. (Coffey) Fish and Alexander H. Fish. In addition to his awesome parents, Teddy is survived by his maternal grandparents, Harry (Butch) and Nancy Coffey of Beverly; his paternal grandparents, Gregory and Polly Fish of Scituate; his aunts and uncles, John Coffey and his wife, Amanda, of Beverly, Jennifer Koulopoulos and her husband, Craig, of Danvers, and Amanda Fish of Scituate, Mass.; three cousins, Mia, Jane and Anne Koulopoulos; his maternal great-grandparents, Donald and Kathleen Wilson of Danvers; and his paternal great-grandparents, James and Joan Fitzpatrick of Scituate.

ARRANGEMENTS: A funeral Mass to celebrate this hero, the greatest ever, will be held at St. Margaret’s Church, 672 Hale St., Beverly Farms, on Thursday, at 10 a.m. Relatives and friends are invited to attend. Visiting hours at the Campbell Funeral Home, 525 Cabot Street, North Beverly, will be on Wednesday, from 5 to 8 p.m. Burial will be private.
