So much love to family and friends on Todd’s passing. We were really grateful to be able to see him last summer and have a video call with him a few weeks ago. Grandpa Todd, as our son Leen called him, always had a smile. We will miss visiting him, making and eating great food together, playing cards, and hearing about his garage sale finds and travel adventures. It was a blessing to have family like Todd and Cheryl close by when we lived in Ottawa. Our hearts hurt with his passing.
Dear Marilee, my sincere condolences. My thoughts are with you and my hope is that your tears will soon turn to smiles when you think of him.
Sincere condolences, Rob, Marilee & Eddy. and families,
Your dad was a highly intelligent, gentle soul who never brought much attention to himself. He was a great brother-in-law and Uncle to us and our family.
With lots of love,
Blake and Linda.
Our deepest sympathy to his children our prayers are with you all at this time and he will be missed
Rob & Marilee,
I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of your father. He was always so personable and welcoming, and it’s clear to evryone that he was an all-around good man. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

I am very sorry to hear of Todd’s passing. I met Todd and Cheryl many years ago when Bill and I visited Uncle Henry in the hospital in Saskatoon. I appreciated being included when Todd came west for a visit. He was a nice man and sounds like a great Grandpa.
God bless you all, Val Keller
Marilee and Rob, some of my fondest memories are of sharing time with you all on your family visits out west. I hope you can take some comfort in these and other great memories of your Dad and the wonderful times you shared with him. Much love from myself, Christine, Emma and Abby.
So sorry to hear of your father’s passing. Please accept our deepest condolences.

My condolences to the family. Todd holds such great memories for me. We worked together at the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO). Todd and I took a trip to Europe in 1996 to see the future of patents at the European Patent Office. We toured The Hague and Amsterdam, then went on a fast trip through Germany, France and Switzerland before returning home. We visited a WWII graveyard in Nancy, France where an uncle was buried. We had great times on that trip and it was one to remember. Todd was such a nice person to be around and to work with. I have thought of him often over the years.
Rob, Marilee and Eddy and family.
Sincere sympathy to everyone. The loss of such a thoughtful quiet caring man from your life definitely leaves a spot you can fill with all the great memories he made with you.

Our deepest sympathy to Rob, Merilee & Eddy and family on Todd’s passing. We know his suffering has ended. Todd was a favourite cousin and we were blessed to have him back in our lives for the past 20 years or so. After school Todd went East and Alex West so they didn’t see each other for some years. Todd & Cheryl were so good to our kids when they lived in Ottawa; in fact Leen has 3 sets of grandparents, as they will always be Grandpa Todd & Grandma Cheryl. We have many great memories of excursions & vacations and we treasure those. We will surely miss him. Hugs to you all.
Rob and Marilee -We were so sorry to hear of the passing of your father and our life long friend. Our condolences too both of you and the family.
Carol, Kelly, Trent and Shauna (Dean).
So sad to hear of Todd’s passing Marilee. We are so grateful that your Mom and Dad, Linda & Blake came to Victoria to visit us and that I got to be at your Mom’s birthday party. Your Dad was a very gentle and kind soul. Please pass our sincere condolences to the rest of your family.
Very sad to hear of the loss of your father Marilee, glad that I did have the opportunity to meet him one time
A special prayer for you today and for his peaceful rest xo
