In Loving Memory

Vollmer, Theodore  F. Jr. “Teddy”

Vollmer, Theodore  F. Jr. “Teddy” of  St. Louis, Missouri passed away on Wednesday, April 17, 2024. He was born December 3, 1951 to the late Theodore F. and Mary Lou (nee Kiel) Vollmer Sr. He is survived by his son Brian (Carol) Vollmer, grandson Thomas (Kim) Vollmer, and granddaughter Katie Vollmer as well as siblings Laura (Carlos) Cordova, Steven (Pamela) Vollmer, Joseph (Suzanne) Vollmer and the late Michael Vollmer.

Teddy attended Holy Innocents Grade School and CBC High School before serving in the U.S. Army. Upon returning from the service, he worked at the Bruns-Norwalk Burial Vault Company. He found his passion as a bartender working at the original Tony’s Restaurant in downtown St. Louis. From there he worked at LoRusso’s Cucina, Al Baker, Charlie Gitto’s on The Hill, and the Dinner Trains at Union Station, then returning to Tony’s where he was still employed. Throughout all this, he also worked with his parents at the family business, Schnur Funeral Home. He was an active volunteer at the Holy Trinity Eastern Orthodox Serbian Church, assisting at all their events. Teddy was an avid classic movie buff, able to cite actors, directors, and mountains of cinematic elements. In his prime he was a long distance runner, as well as an accomplished speed skater who loved Steinberg Rink. He was a captivating conversationalist over cocktails on any combination of concerns. He was a stranger to no one, he will be missed.
