He was raised in the Northland where he made many friends growing up together playing football, baseball, and basketball. He was a 1991 graduate of Oak Park High School. While at a high school dance, Todd initially met Rachel Brinton, they would reconnect years later, become best friends, fall in love and eventually marry on March 24, 2007. Todd and Rachel‘s admiration and devotion to one another would create the foundation for the family they have built today. Todd loved his wife Rachel and his three boys very much, they were his life and his heart, as he was their rock and number one guy. Todd found great joy in spending time watching his boys in all of their sporting events and activities.

He was an avid sports fan, especially of the Chiefs, Royals, and Mizzou Tigers, and was known for hosting many parties at his home, especially during March Madness; he loved entertaining, cooking and smoking meat for his guests. His outgoing personality and ever-present smile will be missed by all who knew him.
