The Ted Takacs Fund
On August 22nd 2013, Nashua man and longtime motorcycle enthusiast Ted Takacs was involved in a hit and run accident which left Ted with numerous, severe injuries. Though a Native of Hungary where Ted fought against the Russian Occupation as a Freedom Fighter, he is every bit a New Hampshire man. The 2 men responsible for the accident Benjamin Tucker 23 and Michael Fawcett 47 have been arrested and charged with numerous crimes. While the case makes its way through the court system and as Ted slowly works his way back to health, the Takacs family is facing mounting medical bills. The Takacs family is turning to Gofundme.com for help.

It's been two months since my dad passed, and it still feels like yesterday. We're reliving the nightmare over and over, since justice has yet to be served. My mom is still burdened with medical bills (about 75,000 still owed), lawyer fees, and now she is being denied my fathers life insurance because of a mistake made by the company. One of the criminals is free, one is luckily back in jail (for now), but still we wait and wait. We just want this all behind us, but it haunts us everyday with these men "free". We thank everyone for all their support, it has helped a lot. And it has meant a lot to our family.

Just want to say thank you to my coworkers at work for all chipping in and collecting for the fund. I did not expect it at all and I can't even tell you how much it means to me and my family. And thank you to everyone else who has done the same. I have some really wonderful friends! And I know my father is smiling down at all the wonderful people who have cared so much throughout these last 3+ months. You all are amazing!

Can't believe it's been two weeks. Still does not feel real. Keep waiting for his voice to come out of nowhere, or to see him out shoveling the snow. And unfortunately we have not been able to make arrangements for him yet because of the ongoing investigation. But my mother is left with growing costs. We are still trying to get approval for an autopsy, so far it has been denied by the state once. If we are left to order it ourselves that comes out of our pockets, and then the cremation, and still mountains of medical bills on top of that. This has been along road for us all, and we just want him at peace. If anyone can contribute just a little here and there it could help my mother out a lot during this difficult time. I know it's the holiday season but a little goes a long way or at the very least share this around please. I hope and pray that we can get justice for him, because this is not the way he should have gone. Miss you everyday Papa!

Heartbroken to say that on November 26, 2013, just days after my father came home from rehab, he has passed away surrounded by family. He fought harder than anyone I knew to recover from this accident. He was fighting for his freedom once again. But he was frustrated, and he was tired. He was an amazing father, and amazing husband to my mother, and a great friend to many who love him dearly. Not a day will go by that I won't look in the mirror and see his face. He will forever be in our hearts.
