Todd went to school in Jefferson and went on to earn several degrees: a bachelor’s degree in criminal science, a bachelor’s degree in accounting, a master’s degree in business, and a master’s degree in public administration. He also earned an associate of applied science degree in mortuary science.

In high school Todd worked for Slininger’s Funeral Home where he gained a calling for funeral directing. Todd first served eight years as a military policeman for the Air Force during the Gulf War, spending a large portion of that time working gang detail in Korea. After the military Todd became a policeman, which lead into a position as a prison guard with the Iowa Department of Corrections. Todd finally realized his calling from high school and was a funeral director for several years until his death.

Todd had a great sense of humor and a kind heart. He loved fitness and body-building and was an avid movie buff. However, his favorite pastime was spent as a model train aficionado, building detailed train layouts and collecting trains and airplanes. Todd’s spirit will be greatly missed.
