An email from First Selectman Peter Tesei announced that a memorial service for Selectman David Theis is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 10, 2015. The email said that details will be posted on the Town of Greenwich website.

Theis, a Republican Selectman for the Town of Greenwich was a Financial Advisor with Wells Fargo Advisors in Old Greenwich. He was also involved in several local non-profit organizations, including the YMCA, where he served on the board for many years. He had a special place in his heart for veterans.

Gov. Malloy and Lt. Gov Nancy Wyman issued a statement that read in part, “David, a third generation Greenwich resident, gave back to the community of Greenwich through volunteerism and service to the town.  He loved his town, he loved his state and his country and always gave back in service to his community.”

In lieu of flowers, donations in David’s memory may be made to the Greenwich Old Timer’s Athletic Association, where he was the Chairman of Local Honorees, or Adopt a Dog, where he was often seen helping at events with his partner Kerrin, a major volunteer with the non-profit.
