Todd was surrounded by a loving family who meant the world to him. He was often the center of attention at family gatherings with his quick wit and incredible sense of humor bringing laughter and smiles to all. This past holiday season was especially memorable for Grandpa Todd as his new granddaughter, River, was able to visit. He loved being a grandpa more than anything and spent countless hours playing with River. Todd was constantly sharing his love of building and tinkering with his children, nieces, and nephews. His favorite projects included woodworking and welding, especially his distinctive horseshoe crosses. Todd was also a great mechanic and was often found working on his '57 Bel Air. Over the years, Todd gave selflessly of his time and talents by helping others in need, whether it was family, friends, or neighbors. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital was one of his favorite charities to which he gave monthly donations. His huge heart extended to more than just people as he was a great dog and animal lover. His dog, Bobo, misses him greatly. In his daily life, Todd enjoyed his work family at Spirit Aerosystems where he was a Master Plumber in the Manufacturing and Thermal Group. He was well respected and had many great friends from his 26 years of service at Boeing and Spirit. Accompanied by his brothers and best friends, Todd was happiest on his many fishing trips.
