Ted Okerstrom Memorial Service
August 1, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Okerstrom family is planning a memorial service for Ted. It will be on Friday August 1st 11:00 a.m. at Hull Park, behind the library. Memorials can be made in Ted’s memory to either TART Trails or Grace Episcopal Church.
Ted was a visionary when it came to understanding and promoting Traverse City’s recreational assets. The trail system was something he believed in and never stopped working to strengthen and connect. He was passionate about the role trails could play in making Traverse City a year-round destination. For Ted, winter was not a time to escape the area but a time to embrace it. I think all of us skiing, snowshoeing, and biking the trails this winter would agree. We were lucky to have such an amazing and dedicated trail pioneer in our community. He will be missed.
