  • My condolence to the family for the loss of your loved one, Tod, and may you find comfort and hope in the scriptural promises of Almighty God (Psalm 83:18) through His written word, the Bible, about His own future appointed time, here on the earth, when He’ll do away with everything that causes mankind pain, suffering and sorrow. Job 14:14,15. John 5:28,29. Revelation 21:3,4,5.

  • I was very shocked to see this while searching for another obituary. I babysat him and his brothers and sisters a very, very long time ago when we all lived on Sugar St. in Marion. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends.

  • We are so sorry for your loss. I remember Tod when he was swimming on the Marion Aquatic Club team. He was the first of his brothers and sister to swim on that team. He was a nice young man who took over the role of a big brother early in life. Reading his obit appears he had led a great and fun filled life. We will keep Tod and his family in our prayers

Bill and I and the family will be out of town for a couple of weeks, therefor we will miss Todd’s memorial service, but please know, that you will be in our prayers.

  • Shocked and saddened by the loss of my dear friend. Tod was my boss at GTE for many years, loved his sense of humor and contagious laughter. My heart hurts, but I know you are reunited with your daughter in heaven. Prayers for the Family.
