Scott and Ellyn join in extending our deepest sympathy to Todds mother (our beloved cousin, Margie Sue Ellis); to Todds wife, Ann; to his sisters, Janet and Julie; to his daughters, Sarah and Lindsay; to the rest of his family, and to his many friends and colleagues in Oak Park, Riverside and Aurora. Todds outgoing personality and sincere interest in family and community made a lasting impression on those of us who had the good fortune to know him, and were profoundly saddened by his early and sudden departure from our midst.

I worked with Todd at Advanced Technology Services, and I recently heard of his passing. He was one of the most hard working individuals at our help desk. He was very kind, patient, and easy to get along with. I am grateful to have had the privilege to work with him during my time at ATS. I pray that God would be with his family during this time.

I only knew Todd through his sister Janet, who was so proud of her baby brother . From the family stories I heard , during the years that I worked with Jan, I knew Todd to be a loving son and brother whose family remained close in his heart no matter how far away life took him. I know his passing will leave I huge hole in their hearts. My sincere condolences to his Mother, Jan and Julie.
