Todd P. Holbrook
August 11, 1969 – September 7, 2020
Todd Patrick Holbrook, 51 years old, of Orlando Florida, passed away on September 7, 2020 after a battle with illness.
Todd was born to Patricia Holbrook and Leon Holbrook in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on August 11, 1969 and was the third son of five boys. Todd became a Christian at his family’s local Baptist church as a young boy.
Todd graduated from Jefferson Davis High School, Montgomery, Alabama, and received an Audio Production degree from the Atlanta Art Institute in Atlanta, Georgia. Todd was married to Suzanne Holbrook on the March 8, 2000. After graduating from the Atlanta Arts Institute, Todd had a successful music career, traveling the world while entertaining thousands and bringing joy to all those he encountered with his amazing voice and piano playing. Todd’s travels and life experiences often found their way into the lyrics and melodies of the songs he wrote and produced. He managed multiple bands over the years, developing friendships for life. Todd loved the ocean and was a featured entertainer on Carnival Cruise Lines when he met the love of his life, Suzanne. Todd and Suzanne were married on the Island of Cozumel on March 8, 2000. Returning to land in the early 2000’s, Todd again utilized his creative and entrepreneurial spirit, owning companies in the communications, spa, and car wash industries. His artistic creativity was not only in music, storytelling and industry development. Todd’s talent for design was admired by many, not just within the businesses he created and consulted with, but also a committed desire in building and creating a beautiful home for his family.
Even as a young man Todd was drawn to the water and the “music” of a full sail while sailing downwind. The moan of the rigging, the sound of the water as it flowed by the hull, and the taste of the spray always called to him. Todd’s passion for sailing led to him acquiring his captain’s license. Todd loved to share his passion for adventure on the water and he took his family and friends sailing on 50 foot plus catamarans throughout the British Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, and other wonderful destinations. Todd was at his happiest piloting his boat while looking at the ocean; this was when he was truly at peace.
When Todd and Suzanne’s daughter, Lily Grace Holbrook, was born he found the second love of his life. Todd was an extremely dedicated father and encouraged the development of Lily’s creative talents in dance and the arts.
Todd had a vivacious desire to experience life and adventure. Though all will miss him…. we have no doubt his adventure continues.
Todd is survived by: Wife: Suzanne Holbrook Children: Lily Grace Holbrook Mother: Pat Holbrook Brothers: Lonnie, Tim, Justin & Kyle

Todd, you were always the host with the most !!! Nothing was too much trouble, driving us around Orlando and sailing us around the Bahamas. You took Zac on his first trip to Hooters (a real eye opener for a 14 year old boy)😉
You were one of the kindest, most thoughtful and funny men I know and always made us welcome. You will be sorely missed. Love and miss you already
Debbie, Zac & Aimee 😘😘

My first connection I made with Todd was through Suzanne working on a Spa project. His passion for music, life, and family held no bounds and his smile is still contagious that brings the best out of anyone. I only wish I could have shared more laughs and smiles with Todd. A few years back at a Spa event in Orlando, I sat next to Todd while he played song after song on the Piano. He gathered a crowd and with many song requests, Todd would play them without pause. Billy Joel, Beatles, and many others. It was energetic, fun, and playful. I could tell it was what he loved to do-Entertain. Only once was I able to visit the Holbrook's home at the annual Halloween gathering and wow could he decorate and put on a show! I pray to God that his memories will last forever for all who knew him and that God bless his soul and family.
Love and Blessings, Paul and Linda Wright
