FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - Ted Bushelman, the former spokesperson for the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport and current Florence city councilman, has died. He was 75.

Bushelman passed away Sunday evening of an apparent heart attack.

Bushelman was the spokesperson for CVG for 41 years, retiring in 2007.

"We extend our deepest sympathy to Ted's family and friends," said John C. Mok, Chief Executive Officer of CVG.  "Ted was an icon in this community and was well-regarded for his knowledge of the Airport and his innovative approach to communications and media relations.  He was a great asset to the entire community and supported many worthy causes and initiatives that have helped this region continue to grow."

"Ted will be remembered for his strong leadership and incredible passion and support of this Airport and this Community," added Barb Schempf, CVG's Director of Public & Government Affairs.  "We will remember Ted's love for his family, fun charismatic personality, and of course, his signature style, as we celebrate his life." 

Bushelman was also a former vice mayor for the city of Florence and had also served as the city's vice-mayor.

"We all lost our best friend," said Diane Wahlen, Mayor of Florence. "His impact was that he did care about this community. He witnessed things as they changed, and he wanted to be a part of it. It's just one mention in a long life of giving back"

Bushelman also served on the Boone County Library Board, as Chairman of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, on the TANK Board, and the American Red Cross, among others.

Family and friends of Ted Bushelman say he repeatedly said he did not want a funeral; he wanted a party.

An Informal Celebration of Ted's Life/Open House will be Saturday, March 12th at World of Golf (formerly World of Sports)in Florence, KY from 3-7 p.m.
