April 6, 1933 ~ September 10, 2018

Theodore "Ted" Scharle passed away at 3:30 a.m. September 10, 2018 with his wife, Katie, and daughter, Meg, at his side. He stated in his very first lecture as a philosophy professor at Loras College in 1962 that "the innermost desires of my heart were always to be a teacher," and he fulfilled those desires by completing his 56th year of teaching last spring at the age of 85 at the University of Portland.
For memorial contributions, the family has established the Theodore Scharle Book Scholarship Fund at the University of Portland.
