— Theodore E. Kyrios, Jr., 63, of Amesbury, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Amesbury, on Monday evening, August 12, 2013.

Born in Lynn on June 25, 1950, he was the son of the late Theodore E. and Helen (Soundis) Kyrios. He was a graduate of Lynn English High School, then went on to receive his bachelor’s and master’s in history from Salem State College.  

Ted enjoyed a very rewarding career as a school teacher at the Nock Middle School, where he taught social studies for 32 years. He loved his students and never missed a chance to encourage them to expand their ability for learning. His reward came from the success of his students.

He leaves behind his beloved wife, Theresa (Goudreault) Kyrios of Amesbury, as well as many nieces and nephews, who were especially dear to him; and several aunts, uncles, and many dear friends, including the Zolla Family and the Jancewicz Family. He will be truly missed by them all.
