Last month we said goodbye to a beloved SigEp brother who tragically died on April 17, 2014.
Tevye Ditter, a graduate of the University of California-Davis and the California Eta Chapter, was known for his larger-than-life presence, made manifest in his height, his voice, and his legacy of serving others. Tevye’s funeral service was at standing room capacity as family, friends and theatrical colleagues came from all over Northern California to give their condolences. Those in attendance included the Sacramento Choral Society, the Sacramento Philharmonic, the deputy director of the Department of Social Services and many other prominent leaders.
As loved ones shared their accounts of Tevye’s life, their common message was that Tevye found a way to give fully of himself in every moment. His humility will always be interwoven into the legacy that is just as powerful as the voice that entertained thousands from stages all over Northern California.
The brothers of California Eta could not be more proud of the life Tevye lived and the way he embodied the Sound Mind and Sound Body philosophy. His loss will be felt for years to come but his legacy will always be remembered.
Rest in peace, Tevye Ditter, May 8, 1974–April 17, 2014.
