Brian “Ted” Pendleton, 74, of Boise, ID and formerly of Proctor, VT, died May 4th, 2016 in the comfort of his home. Born November 13th, 1941, he was the son of George and Marion Pendleton. He graduated from Trinity High School in New York City and Middlebury College for Drama in the class of 1963. He served two terms in the Vermont House of Representatives, was the News Director of WSYB, Communications Director at Central Vermont Public Service and Public Relations Director of the American Red Cross in Vermont and New Hampshire.
Ted was best known perhaps for his theater life. He acted and directed many plays including West Side Story, Carousel, and his role as Tevya in Fiddler on the Roof. This was one of his greatest passions. Ted was very well loved in Rutland and Boise. His un-assuming presence, his kind, accepting disposition, his love for life, his mischievous giggles, the deep belly laugh, and the twinkles in his eyes will forever remain with all of the us and the lives he touched.
He is survived by his wife, Becky Fenton of Boise, his brother and sister in law, Bruce and Georgia Pendleton of Burlington, VT, his two daughters Gillian Goumulka of Redlands, California and Catherine Rigalli of Great Falls, Montana, Sarah Christie of Rutland, Vermont, his three grandsons Kevin and Trevor Gomulka of Japan and California, Joshua Pendleton of Vermont, and one granddaughter Kessa Rigalli of Montana. He had many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, his son, Terence Pendleton and his step daughter, Lisa Fenton.
Funeral services will be private. The Bella Vida Funeral Home in Boise, ID is assisting the family with arrangements.
