My memories of Todd are of a most welcoming and friendly face!!! Even though are paths crossed infrequently it was always like seeing a friend one hadn't seen in years. Full of life and a friend to all. RIP my friend!

When we moved to Springfield in 1955 we lived right next door to the Polidors. Toddy was always on the go, often in the blue Ford convertible with the top down. I remember too how ambitious I thought he was by working as a busboy at the Hartness House. He was older and served as a little window into what the future might hold.
Rest in peace old friend.

My deepest sympathy to Barbara and David, as well as David’ wife Carolyn and their three boys; Nicholas, Jeffrey and Michael.
My favorite round of golf I ever played was with Todd, his long time friend John Currie and his son David at David’s course on the Cape.
Always a gentleman and both he and Barbara always made you feel a member of their family when you entered their home.
Hope he is enjoying a visit with him Mom and Dad, and his son Duke
