Obituary

Terence G. Todd (Terry) passed away unexpectedly at the age of 77 on Thursday Nov 24, 2016. He will be greatly missed by his wife, Shirley Todd; his son, Greg (Janeen) Todd, his daughter, Kathleen (Chad) Tanner; and his grandchildren, Douglas, David, Aiden, Afton and Annika, as well as Shirley's mother, daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Terry is preceded by his first wife, Marjorie Todd. He was born in Whitehorse, Yukon (Canada) on September 20, 1939 and was the second of four children to Laurie and Jean Todd; brother to Michael (Joyce), Jocelyn (Don), and Stephen. In his typical competitive fashion, he was the first of his siblings to pass away.

Breaking the mold of his traditional family, Terry led a life of adventure that included marriage to his first wife, Marge (whom he met in an elevator on a trip to San Francisco); co-founding with her a 43-year strong business on a shoestring budget; car rebuilding, tinkering and racing; cruising around in his '66 Caddy; hockey coaching, playing and spectating; marriage to his second wife, Shirley; and travel around the globe.

Though small in stature, he was big on personality. He never met a person he couldn't talk to, whether he was waiting in line at the store, making a sales call, ordering at a restaurant, or celebrating a sporting event with whomever happened to be seated next to him. He was a master of the inappropriate joke, loved a story, and liked them more with each retelling. He greatly enjoyed gathering with family or friends for a party.

There will be an open house celebration in honor of Terry on Saturday, December 17th from 1-6pm at his home in Aurora. (For address, call Todd Expediting at 303-394-3505.) We would love all who knew Terry to come prepared to share a memory or story in our memory book.


If you knew Terry, you know that (as a Canadian) he LOVED hockey. For years, during our youth, he coached and supported youth hockey in Colorado. His love of hockey is carried on by his son, Greg, and his grandsons Douglas and David. Terry spent many a day at an ice rink either coaching, or spectating. We would like to honor his memory by donating to Colorado youth hockey initiatives that he and his son and grandsons have been involved in. This will include CAHA and the DU Junior Pioneers.
Terry ended his last day by watching an Avalanche game on tv and DVRing it to watch in the future. We are heartbroken that he does not get to watch the end of that game while sitting on his couch drinking a beer.
You would honor him by donating to his memorial in lieu of flowers.
