Theodore E. "Ted" Thormann Jr., a longtime popular Calvert Hall College High School math teacher, died Nov. 23 of a heart attack at the Towson private school. He was 62 and a resident of Towson's Campus Hills neighborhood. Mr. Thormann, who had heart bypass surgery several years ago, regularly exercised and rode his bicycle. He often would return to school in the evening and work out in the gym or walk the halls for exercise. He went to Calvert Hall on the evening of Nov. 22, and when he did not return home, his wife of 17 years, the former Janice Flynn, a lawyer with the Public Service Commission, became alarmed and called Baltimore County police.
