Life Story / Obituary


Todd was a unique and wonderful person. His charisma, charm, and bright personality were apparent to everyone he met. A talented artist, he practiced stone masonry, concrete sculpting, wood carving, and wood burning. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, and looked forward to spending time with his hunting buddies every year at deer camp.

He was involved with the community, loved talking with people, and was very proud of his work as an instructor at NMC’s M-TEC build program, and college for kids.

Always the dreamer, Todd enjoyed many subjects, and looked forward to the possibilities ahead.

He joins his Brother, Royce, and beloved Grandmother, Grace, as well as his loyal dog, Dusty.

He left this world surrounded by those who truly loved him.

We love you always. As you used to say when we were kids, we will see you “on the flip side”.

May you rest in peace,

Your loving family and friends
