Celebration of Ted Strong's Life, April 3, 2012
The following information is from the press release for this Event. It takes place during the Skydive Expo. I know there is another thread for that, but Ted was such a remarkable man in our sport, he deserves his own thread.
When: April 3, 2012 10:00am-12:00 noon Where: Skydive Deland 1600 Flight Line Boulevard DeLand, FL 32724-2159
This celebration is planned to honor Ted Strong, who passed away on October 14th 2011. It can never be said that Ted lived a boring life. He was always looking for the next adventure and he will be sorely missed.
This celebration has been planned to coincide with the start of the ôSkydive Expoö which he was fundamental in organizing. April is a special time for Ted as the 5th is the anniversary of his first jump in 1958, and the 7th is his birthday. There will be a special booth set up at the Expo showcasing some of his passions. Make sure to stop by the booth on the 7th to share some cake and celebrate his birthday.
We will be closing the shop on the 3rd of April to allow all of the Strong Enterprises family to attend the service. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but know that you understand.
We hope that you will be able to join us and look forward to spending this time celebrating the life of our beloved founder and a GIANT in the industry. If you are unable to attend please take a moment at 10am EST on the 3rd to send your thoughts and prayers our way.
