Todd attended Van Orin grade school and then graduated from LaMoille High School in 1984. Todd loved football, baseball, basketball and fishing. Todd still holds the pole-vault record for LaMoille High School to this day. One of his greatest loves was working with wood. He loved to build his sons’ baseball bats, go karts and little go karts to race. Fishing became another one of Todd’s biggest things he loved. He traveled anywhere to fish, and that meant bringing his boys along with him. Todd is also a very big avid Dallas Cowboys fan.
