  • I met Todd and his family back 1981 when Matt and I were just in grade school together. We kept in touch even after Matt passed until a few years ago. He was a very nice and gentle person. He cared deeply for his family and he will surely be missed by all who knew him. My heart and love goes out to his entire family.

  • Todd was indeed a man of virtue and committed to his family and profession. He was a pleasure to be around and always willing to show you “the ropes”. Served with him on the AANA Board of Directors. My God rest his soul!

  • Todd now begins his everlasting life without all of the recent pain and the anguish of losing who he was in the past few years. He is out of danger now, and I hope at the peace promised to him for his service to us, country, and God.

    I, like many, am heartbroken he cannot hold my hand or hug me again, but know he has many looking out for him where he is now, and many of us here, remembering our best times together.

    I promise I will try to play Amazing Grace on my pipes tomorrow as you are laid to rest next to your son, fallen brother.

    All the love of your family, friends, WANA Associates, and the countless patients you helped through their procedures.

    Strength to all of us left here, as we navigate our next steps without you.

    We will miss you, remember our precious moments and keep you in our hearts forever.

    Thanks for Nana and Paps for bringing you into our lives and making you the man that you blessed us all with.

  • Dear Marge,
    May I express heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Todd served our nation and our profession valiantly. Both a better “place” because of his dedication. It was a great pleasure professionally to get to know him a bit better on our AANA Foundation board together. May you be comforted by God’s gracious hands at this time of sorrow.
