In 2007, he and his wife moved to Leominster to be closer to family. He was pre deceased by his wife of 45 years, Marion O’Brien Pallotta. Teeks was the youngest and last member of his original family. He was pre deceased by his brother, Dr. John Pallotta, sister, Lillian DiMassa, and brothers, Lt. Col. Edward Pallotta and Ralph Pallotta.
Teeks was profoundly dedicated to his family. His nieces and nephews were very special to him. Through his telling of stories and enjoying traditional Italian family gatherings, Uncle Teeks was a friend and companion to all. His gentle nature and kind spirit tied the generations together for many decades.
Teeks graduated from Medford High School, and shortly after, honorably served his country in WWII in the U.S. Navy. After the war, he returned home to care for his mother and marry his lifelong love, Marion. Teeks worked for the Chelsea Clock Company as a master clock maker. Soon after, he continued to honor his country by working at Hanscom Airforce Base in Bedford, MA as a jet engine technician. Upon retirement, Teeks and Marion spent their weekends in Boston Harbor, on their beloved boat, Tik Tock.
