Todd Kenneth Chappel, 52, of Prairie Village, Kansas passed away with peace and grace on October 6, 2019 at his newly acquired home with his family and steadfast love, Tracy, at his side.

Todd was born on January 1, 1967 (New Year’s Baby) to Jerry and Shirley Chappel in Kansas City, Missouri. Todd was the second child following along after his sister Amber.Todd’s early years were spent in Prairie Village, graduating from Shawnee Mission East High School. Raised by a single mom with a big heart and love for all, brought many of Todd’s school chums to the Chappel rec room after school and on weekends, providing a meeting spot and guidance to all and particularly some who were latch-key kids. This “Chap” group formed a very tight bond that holds strong to this day. Added to this mix were many foreign exchange students, and later on nursing and college students. The Chappel home also made way to include two of Shirley’s nieces, so there was never a dull moment!

He started his own business, Padgett Business Services, which provided Business Accounting, Tax Consulting and Prep work. Later on he joined Credit World Services as Marketing Director while maintaining his Accounting firm.

I have many sweet memories of Todd, particularly his birthday celebrations, having spent most of them with him during his childhood and teenage years. No matter what we did on New Years Eve, New Years Day was to celebrate Todd and so we did. May he Rest In Peace with Shirley and Amber!

We met Todd and Shirley in 2004 in Roatan and were treated like family from that moment on. The fellowship, brotherhood, and great times will be missed but their spirits will live in our hearts forever. Rest In Peace my Friend

I met Todd's mother, Shirley, through a business relationship and she spoke of Todd frequently. I was delighted to meet him when he began working in his mother's business. He was so much fun and we'd have many laughs over the stories that he told about his many adventures. We had a common bond in liking to drive fast. He was such a devoted son and took such wonderful care of Shirley. The joy of his life were his sons. His face would light up when he spoke of them. His love and grace will live on in them. He will be greatly missed by so many.

I remember living with Todd and Shirley in 2000. I was working in KC, MO and they offered for me to stay with them. I was going through a tough time that year and Todd was there for me. Took me under his watch and treated me like a little brother. Helped me get through that bad time and I will always remember that. Thank you Todd, There's a pitcher of Margaritas waiting for you!
