He was born August 17, 1963 at Memorial Hospital of Lafayette County in Darlington the son of Bill and Maxine (Fink) Kilcoyne. Ted grew up in the Darlington area and graduated from Darlington High School in 1982. He spent his whole live living in the Darlington area where he was known for his taxidermy talents.

Ted was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Darlington, the Willlowa Beagle Club in Platteville, WI where he held the title of President, and the Heroes Hunting Program – where Ted would mount the animal a soldier harvested and donate his time and supplies. He enjoyed hunting duck and rabbit with his dogs, fishing and camping with his children and close friends, gardening, and training world class dogs. Any free time he had he would be outdoors. Ted was also a huge supporter of the Darlington Fire Department of which is son Haden is a member. Ted never let his disability limit him on what he could accomplish.

He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by his family and friends.
