Park District Mourns the Passing of Commissioner Timothy Powell

It is with deep sadness that the Grayslake Community Park District mourns the unexpected death of Park Commissioner Timothy Powell. Tim was a beloved, lifelong resident of Grayslake and a 7-year dedicated board member to the Park District.

“Tim was a devoted member of our park district board, he served with integrity, passion and only wanted what was best for our community,” said Executive Director Kristin Splitt. “He was the true definition of a public servant and he will be greatly missed.”

Powell was elected to the Board in April 2013. In addition to serving on the Park Board, he served on boards for Avon Township, the Grayslake Area Public Library, and the College of Lake County. Tim was a retired Lake County Sheriff and lived a life of service to his community.

The Park Board and staff members appreciated Tim’s warm personality and commitment to serving the community and he will always remain a special member of our Park District family.
