He attended Vo-Tec school to become a machinist. After a few years in Owatonna at SPX, Todd switched to being one of the Elementary School custodians and enjoyed seasonal work at CFS in Blooming Prairie.

Todd enjoyed fishing, playing Farkle and putting a few back with friends, going on his Sunday drives with his dogs and hours and hours of his Westerns! He will be remembered for his old school personality, “dad jokes” and raiding anyone’s candy jar!
