Todd was a gregarious and outgoing individual, who was very generous to family, friends, and strangers alike. This disposition led him into a career in sales. His life was dedicated to his family especially his son and grandchildren and he loved spending time with his extended family and many friends. He was a faith filled man, with a strong relationship with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

He is preceded in death by his parents, grandson Ayden, nephew Adam Woodbury and great nephew Benjamin Sahr. Memorials are suggested to the family for designation at a later date.
Written by Brandon in remembrance of my father:
I was there by his side as he crossed the great divide, he makes his way to God’s golden gates
Where surely, he won’t have to wait;
cause when he gets there, I just know Saint Peter will let him know how welcome he is and to be there;
His family and friends who passed before will greet him and with that big smile he will watch over them all for
I’m sure he is looking down telling us all not to frown, He’d want us all to remember him how he was and
where he’s been for there is no doubt in my mind he touched lives every time he went somewhere and saw a
need he’d always help and do a good deed;
So if he taught me nothing else in life, its to always try to be kind and nice, the world would be a
happier place if we could follow in his grace.
Remember Me As You Pass By”
Most people who are familiar with old American gravestones know the old verse,
Remember me as you pass by,
As you are now, so once was I,
As I am now, so you must be,
Prepare for death and follow me
