Todd loved to farm and never grew tired of learning everything he could about Holstein cows. He was a huge Wisconsin sports fan, especially the Packers, Brewers, and Badgers. In his spare time, he enjoyed playing slow pitch softball, shooting pool, and bowling. Everyone who knew Todd would agree, that his greatest joy in life was his children. When they were young, he loved teaching them how to play sports and tried to never miss a game. As they became adults, he told anyone who would listen how proud he was of their accomplishments. Once they had kids of their own, he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, especially making them laugh. He cherished the memories they made together.
