I only knew Todd for a couple of years, but in just that short time, Todd taught me how to dry wall (he helped me finish some of our basement), as well as how to start a garden. The kids and I always loved it when Todd would stop by with some sort of harvest from his garden, flowers, or just visit and see how my garden was doing. With him working right next door (at M&C Trenching), we were able to see him frequently, and not only did he make an impact in my life, but my children's lives as well. Todd will surely be missed, but never forgotten.

Dear Myra..I have thought long and hard..I cannot remember the first time I met Todd..it seems like hecwas always there! And yes, we all had such great times...like when Todd may have had a little too much to drink, jumped over a campfire and broke his foot..he refused to get it checked by a doctor til the next day..and then we all told him it was probably broken...that was down by Bedford..so many years ago...such great fun camping .. my kids were little then..so its more like decades ago..
Love to you all..hang on to your memories..they are truly golden..

Myra do you remember telling me”see that man over there? The one with the moustache and hat? Well, that’s the man I’m going to marry.” Had you even met him yet or was it love at first sight?! And that, Anthony and Travis is the beginning of your mom and dad’s love story. I remember it was Todd’s bday and your mom asked him to stop by, I believe she bought him a wallet. He pulled up in his truck and that’s really the first time I met him. There’s no doubt he loved your mom and his children. He came to Fort Wayne and did my bathroom because your mom asked him to. He was a good man and will be missed by many. God bless you all at this time love Lynn

I don’t know where to even start with this but I guess it starts from me being a little girl meeting Todd & growing to know the whole family. Myra you have always been like a second mom to me and my heart aches for you all 😢 Thanks for many many memories and letting me be part of the family even if it’s not blood .
Todd you will be missed terribly 😢😢
R.I.P. till we meet again ❤️❤️
