TED HEYL, JR.

Ted grew up in the Valley and graduated from Canoga Park High School in 1953 and later from
. He then served in the US Army in Okinawa before beginning a long career with the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. He offered selfless support to countless young people in LA's parks, on Little League and Babe Ruth teams and with many other groups. Later, Ted
helped plan the rapid expansion of LA's network of parks in the 1970s and 1980s as Assistant to the Planning Officer.
He is survived by Dolores Averill, his beloved partner of 37 years. He was a devoted father, brother and uncle to his daughter Megan Heyl of Los Angeles; his sister Mary Sawyer of Ruidoso, New Mexico; his brother John Heyl of Tucson, Arizona; and four nieces. He will always be remembered as a modest and generous spirit and a person who could always be depended upon when others needed his advice and support.
