Theodore A Chavez, (63), of Denver, Colorado, passed away on March 27, 2023, surrounded by family. Theodore, fondly known as Ted, was born to Gloria Leyba Chavez and Primo Rufus Chavez, on November 21, 1959, in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Ted was also predeceased by his brother Rufus, his sister-in-law Lorenza, nephew Isaac, and cousin Ernie.
Ted held many titles in his life, including, school bus driver, coach, DJ, and community liaison, but his favorite role was being a father to his twin daughters and son Emiliano. He loved nothing more than spending time with his children. He was always there for them - his kids were his everything. Theodore changed his life for his twin girls and then again when his son Emiliano was born where his family grew to include, Sandra, Jamille, Michelle, Karen, and grandchildren Renata and Ellie who he loved so much. Ted wasn't like a normal dad he raised his twin daughters as a single parent. He went above and beyond for his children, they traveled the world together, volunteered, coached, and played ball together.
Ted left this world a very accomplished man. He has been recognized for his bus driving and training skills, honored for his service in the community, and has been recognized as a 9 news hero. Ted loved giving back to his community, children, and the kids he coached and drove to school. May he continue to live in our memories.
