Hi all. I am Teds father.

Ted died in a terrible accident two nights ago up at his new property north of Salmon ,Idaho He was working
alone with his new skid steer. It appears it got stuck and he was trying to pull it out with his big
truck and the skid steer was in gear when he got in between it and the bucket.

I found him late in the dark when he didn’t come home. It was and still is traumatic.
After rushing back to my blacksmith friend., he arranged for search and rescue as well
as the sheriff to help. Around 12:30 am I left for Moscow, Idaho to tell his mom yesterday morning.
I am not able to talk without becoming unglued, but wanted you to know.

He was only 23. Why these things happen I suppose no one knows with certainty.
He knew many of you and met a few. His passion for the outdoors ran very deep.

I am so heartbroken, but wanted you all to know.

Teds Dad.

I am so sorry to get this news I always looked forward to his wilderness photos and contributions to this forum.

May he rest in peace knowing how much you loved him and how much he will be missed.

I never met him but always enjoyed seeing his pictures! I’ll miss that for sure. God speed! The good lord must have needed another trapper.

I can hardly believe it! So dang sorry for your heart breaking loss. He was one of the really good guys on here and I always enjoyed his posts and the sharing of his outdoor passion with the rest of us that can't be in Idaho.

A friend once shared this with me after the death of my father, and I'll pass it on: "Somebody with the spirit he had is never really gone...they're with us forever". At the time this was the most comforting thing I heard for some reason.
