So many special memories of Todd. I was blessed that he was my son in law for so many years. At one time he promised me he would always love and provide for his sons. He did so well.

Todd and I were best friends in college! I always questioned him not dating more! He told me he would only date perfect girls for him and he had high standards! He obviously met that girl who made him happy! I am so happy he met the love of his life who made him happy! Saw the pics and she is gorgeous! Talked him on Facebook a few years ago and told me about his love his kids! .Rest in peace TK!

Served under the leadership of Sgt. King in the Vehicle Theft Unit at SPD. Besides being a good person, one thing I liked about Todd was the freedom he allowed in conducting investigations. He wanted to be kept informed, but knew the strength of building a criminal case was in the Investigators hands. Always supportive, yet had the ability to provide direction if needed. A favorite memory: just prior to my retirement I happened to arrive at work one day without my badge (forgetfulness due to anticipation). I walked into his office and informed him I needed to return home due to my forgetfulness. He smiled, pulled out the top drawer of his desk and slid one of his "spare" badges across the desk. He said, "I've had that happen before, here use one of mine today." Rest in Peace My Brother.

Dee and family, we send you our deepest condolences and these beautiful words... Broken Chain Author: Ron Tranmer We little knew the day that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone. For part of us went with you The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories. Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.
