Ted Andersen ( Missoula 1963 )

posted: Dec 7, 2011

Ted, 69, died September 30, 2011, in Libby, Montana. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Forestry from the University of Montana, while jumping from Missoula in 1963 and 1965-67. It launched a 33-year Forest Service career for Ted, who worked in fire management and land exchanges in the Kootenai National Forest. His work took him to Missoula and Helena, Montana, to Riggins and Sandpoint, Idaho, and to Libby, where he retired. Following retirement, Ted wrote several environmental assessments for land exchanges through his own business, Rocky Mountain Ecosystems Service. He served on numerous community committees, including the Lincoln County Planning Board.
