Todd Warner of Marquette, Michigan, formerly of Minnesota, age 50, passed away Wednesday, July 18, 2012, after a brief battle with cancer. He was one of our Warriors and a kind soul.  He will be badly missed.

Todd attended Macalester College in Minnesota and earned a Masters of Geology at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. He was Director of Natural Resources at Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC), in Baraga, Mich., where he lived out his passion for conservation and protection of natural resources.

One of the many projects Todd established was the KBIC Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) with the Superior Watershed Partnership. He believed it was vitally important that young adults learn the importance of protecting the natural environment. Memorials preferred to the Todd Warner memorial fund, c/o Superior Watershed Partnership, 2 Peter White Drive, Presque Isle Park, Marquette, MI  49855. Funds will support scholarships to KBIC youth.
