  • I managed Ted for several years at Kelly Services. As a veteran myself, I always enjoyed talking to Ted about our days in the military. I just found out he passes away as I moved to Texas several years ago. He was a great guy and employee.

  • To the Tatro family,
    One of the nicest people that I could ever talk to during my summers at the Barnstormers was Ted… I loved our quick moments while I was doing the “50/50 Raffle” to chat with Ted about anything that crossed our minds. So very sorry for our loss and my condolences to the entire Tatro family.

  • Dale and family,
    So sorry to hear of Ted’s passing. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Thank you for making sure Jason (my godson) had the chance to be with him this past weekend! I hadn’t seen Ted in many years, but still remember the stories he and Steve shared of their high school days! I’m sure they were in trouble at school more than once or twice. I will always fondly remember the times he spent with my family.

  • Dale,
