Theodore Malwitz

December 20, 1955 — May 3, 2024

Theodore “Tad” Malwitz, 68, of Highlands Ranch, Colorado passed away on May 3, 2024.  Tad chose to end his ALS journey in the comfort of his home surrounded by his family.

Tad was born on December 20, 1955 to Theodore “Ted” and Margaret “Pegi” Malwitz in New Haven, Connecticut.

In 1975, Tad met Kaye (Schneider) and they married in 1979, starting their life together. Life brought them to Connecticut, where they had their daughter, Courtney. They eventually moved back to Colorado to be close to both their families and raise their daughter.

Tad was an avid lover of the outdoors and spent much of his time in the mountains enjoying the beauty and adventure they offered; skiing, hiking, camping and 4-wheeling with his friends and family. His motorcycles were another passion. He loved riding through the mountains and exploring the US on his summer trips out to Tahoe, Utah, Glacier National Park, Memphis, Michigan, along the Mississippi, and many other rides. Tad also had a love of music. Not tied to a genre or era, he loved all music and continued to find new artists from movie soundtracks and from what his daughter was listening to. You could always count on him for a good playlist.

Most of all Tad loved his family. Words cannot describe the love and care he gave his whole family.

Tad’s caring and generous heart could be felt by those around him. He was always willing to help someone in need, acting without hesitation. His laugh and great sense of humor brought joy and smiles to all who knew him. He truly loved life. Tad was adventurous through and through. Whether it was taking his truck out after a snow storm to explore, snorkeling in Maui, or taking a road just to see where it went.

Tad is survived by his loving wife, Kaye, their daughter, Courtney (Jake) Briggs, and granddaughter, Abigail. His sister, Christine “Chris” Hayutin, his two brothers Keith Malwitz (Tim Ladwig) and Jeff (Becky) Malwitz, and numerous brother and sister-in-laws, nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed by all.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date in the coming months.

In his memory, donations can be made to the
ALS Association or to ALS United Rocky Mountain.
