I remember Todd from Clark County High School, having first met him at he sat in his lawn chair outside the Friday night football games, cheering on the team, and bringing sunshine to everyone he met. I was delighted to catch up with him on Facebook and hear about what he'd accomplished over the years. He was truly a blessing. My condolences to your family, may you be comforted by memories of such a wonderful man.

What a wonderful example Todd sat for all who knew him to follow.

Young children from YOUTH camps as well as all adults who knew him, cherished the time spent with him.
