Full obituary for Theodore Lee Fuss II........................
Theodore Lee Fuss II, Lt. Commander (Ret.), U.S. Navy Reserve, passed away in Gahanna, Ohio surrounded by his loving family on September 25th at the age of 61.
 
Ted was the President of the Class of 1975 at Gahanna Lincoln High School and graduated with honors from The Ohio State University in 1979. He was commissioned an officer in the U.S. Navy from OSU's NROTC program and received his wings of gold in 1982. Ted was a Top Gun fighter pilot, flying F-14 Tomcats, and later served as a Captain at Northwest and Delta Air Lines.
 
A passionate sportsman and dedicated, revered coach, he helped establish local youth lacrosse teams, including the Gahanna Lincoln High School team. You could find him flying exotic kites, sailing, boating and fishing. His passions were aviation, lacrosse, the Buckeyes, music and dancing. Although his moves were legendary, he was too modest to appear on "Dancing with the Stars." It was their loss.
 
Ted considered his greatest accomplishment, by far, to be his three sons; David (Elizabeth), Andrew and Thomas, who survive him along with his loving wife of 35 years, Lisa. Additionally, he is survived by his parents, Theodore and Lorna Fuss, niece Jill McInerney (Derek), and nephew Lee Auer. He was preceded in death by his sister, Peggy Fuss Auer.
 
It is with great joy that his life will be honored and celebrated with a visitation to be held from 1:00 - 4:00 PM and a memorial service with military honors beginning at 4:15 PM on Saturday, October 6th at Schoedinger Northeast, 1051 E. Johnstown Rd., Gahanna with Kai Nilson, officiant. Inurnment will be held at a later date at Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego with full military honors.
