TED L. DARIO (1934-1996)
Early in 1991 Ted began organizing the construction of the LAWDP Rodeo Grounds at
the Granada Hills Service Center. The First Annual LADWP Lineman’s Rodeo was
held on June 15th of that year. Each year teh top winnings teams of the local
rodeo are sent to compete in the International Lineman’s Rodeo Competition in
Kansas City, Missouri. Ted remained actively involved in the rodeo in running
the rodeo until his retirement in 1996.
In addition to his work with the local rodeo, Ted also served as a cheif and was
a member of the executive board of the national lineman’s rodeo.
Ted’s commitment to safety, training, brotherhood and excellence in line work was
not only his job but his passion.
