Theodore " Teddy" Jaffe, 66 of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, former longtime Capital District resident died peacefully on Monday, March 8, 2021 in Pittsfield. Teddy resided in Troy most of his adult life in a group home. He was well cared for and lived a good life.
Many of you folks that attended Ben Becker's Camp Nassau will remember Teddy very well as the " Weatherman". He would give daily weather reports to the campers and staff at Camp Nassau. Once a day, he would come on stage at the camp and deliver his report. Teddy always had a grin on his face after his reports. Back in those days, we did not know much about autism, however Teddy was very much accepted and embraced by all at Camp Nassau.
Teddy is survived by several cousins
Interment will be held at the Temple Israel Cemetery in Guilderland, NY where Teddy will be laid to rest near his family. He will certainly be remembered for his daily reports much before there was doppler radar.
