Theodore Francis Salto was born on July 22, 1968, to Norman and Bonnie (Hartman) Salto in Alexandria. The oldest of four children, he was raised in Alexandria and graduated from Jefferson High School. Ted moved to Southern California for several years before returning to Alexandria where he began truck driving. In 2018, he started driving the “Green Machine” truck for Salto Enterprises Inc. Ted was known for being a great handy man that could fix anything to do with carpentry. He loved motorcycle riding and spending time with his nieces and nephews. Even though Ted lived in Minnesota, it was always his intent to move south for the winter. Most importantly, he was a child of God and was firm in his faith.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Frank and Ruth Hartman; paternal grandma, Mary Salto; nephew, Zach Salto; two aunts, Lori Harstad and Mona Lisa Hartman; along with many more aunts and uncles.

Ted is survived by his parents, Norman and Bonnie Salto of Alexandria; three siblings, Tim (Steph) Salto of Sauk Centre, Tom Salto of Alexandria, and Teresa (Mike) Harstad of Parkers Prairie; nine nieces and nephews, Hannah Salto, Chelsey and Johnny Salto, Blaine Wheeler, Brittany Tripp, Mike Harstad Jr., Jessica Hagen, Elizabeth and Rebekah Harstad; aunts and uncles, Jim (Jo) Hartman and Carol (Gary) Swanson; and cousin/motorcycle riding buddy, Dennis Wesen.

Honorary urnbearers are his two nieces, Elizabeth and Rebekah Harstad and his truck driving friends, Paul Koubsky, Brent Roth, Dave “Woody” Pesta, and Richard “Archie” Archambault.

Memorials are preferred. Thank you all for your support and prayers.
