Mr. Theodore (Ty) Caine (or Most Honorable Professor, Sir) passed away on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at the age of 80. He was born in Derby, Connecticut on May 19, 1941 to Edward Chrzanoski and Olga Chrzanoski (formerly Sosnowski) who lived in Ansonia, Connecticut.
Family and friends are invited to gather on Saturday, May 28, 2022 from 9:00 – 10:00 AM with a memorial ceremony starting at 10:00 AM in Hamlin & Hilbish Funeral Home’s chapel (326 E Orange Ave, Eustis, FL 32726), followed by a reception at 12:00 PM at New China Buffet (304 W. Ardice Ave, Eustis, FL 32726).
Ty obtained his Master’s degree in Psychology and later went to school to become a CNA. He was employed as a Professor in New York, Pennsylvania, and later at Disney University where he taught Psychology of Business. He met his wife Linda while teaching Psychology of Business at Disney University. After teaching, he opened his own flooring company, CEI Floors and Distribution, but after decades in the flooring industry, he decided he wanted to do something different. So, at the ripe old age of 70, Ty went back to school and became a CNA. He worked as a home health aide and in nursing homes and enjoyed it immensely. Ty moved to central Florida from Connecticut in the 1970s. He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Eustis and the Elks Lodge and was involved with the Senior Breakfast at the Eustis Rec Center. He loved the outdoors and being out in the sun. He enjoyed motorcycle riding, body surfing, tanning at the beach, and of course people watching. He enjoyed buffets, watching old movies, and perusing thrift stores. Ty was a loving family man and loved to play games with his family. Ty is remembered and will be dearly missed by his wife of 35 years, Linda Caine; sons, Simon Caine, Noel Caine, Aaron Caine, Adam Caine; daughter, Rachel Caine; sister, Dorie Landmon; daughter-in-law, Heather Caine; and grandchildren, Xander Caine, Michael Ray, Sage Chrzanoski, Ellie Chrzanoski and Jude Caine.
