We just heard the very sad news that Andy Ekstrom has died. We first met Andy when the MARRS Project was just opening up - Ekstrom was the go-to guy for most aspects of the complex, and he was unfailing in his efforts to help us when we were looking for anything pertaining to the complex, or any other issue related to Midtown/Downtown development.
That was his reputation – a very friendly, helpful guy who always seemed to go a bit further than most to help. Ekstrom was a familiar face in Midtown/Downtown, and was a true booster for the smart development of Sacramento’s core. He will be remembered, as one friend put it, as “a true and honest gentleman.”
We don’t have word on a memorial service yet but will post when information becomes available. [Done -edit]
