First Selectman Peter Tesei’s office confirmed that a memorial service will be held for Selectman David N. Theis on Saturday, January 10, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at Christ Church Greenwich, 254 East Putnam Ave.
Mr. Theis died on Tuesday, Dec. 23. A statement issued by Mr. Tesei described Theis as a Greenwich native who was involved in many facets of the community and whose contributions touched the lives of so many residents each and every day.
Mr. Theis, a Republican, was a constant presence at fundraisers and charity events in town. He leaves behind his partner of many years Kerrin Coyle and his sisters Ginny and Nancy. The First Selectman issued an order that flags at all Town buildings be flown at half-staff until such time as Selectman Theis is laid to rest.
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.
