I am saddened to hear of Todd's passing. I worked with him years ago as we traveled around the country auditing claims files. He was a dear friend, the perfect gentleman and my favorite dinner companion on those trips. We lost touch the last couple of years but I always heard from him at the holidays and he sent a lovely thoughtful gift when my daughter was born. He loved to talk about his family, especially his nephews. Though I write this now with tears in my eyes, I will remember him with a smile. My deepest sympathy to his family. May you rest in peace my dear old friend.
Mrs. Arrowood and Johnny,
Please accept our deepest condolences on Todd's passing. Every time I returned to Rural Hall Moravian Church, I always looked forward to being able to catch up with Todd. He was so funny, and we we able to celebrate and commiserate on many NC State games. I will truly miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love - Kyle Fay & Family

I am so sorry to hear of Todd's passing. Todd and I were friends from the time we meet in Boy Scouts. He was a wonderful person and a dear friend. I will always remember his sensitive and witty personality. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Your wonderful son and brother was such a joy. I worked with Todd at Shelby Insurance years ago, and it was just a pleasure and honor to be his friend and co-worker.

It breaks our heart to hear of the passing of Todd. Todd was a great friend and we shared lots of laughs and good times during the start of our adjusting careers. I worked with Todd for about 10 years and the one thing that I will always remember is the way that he could turn your bad day into a good one. His personality and the effect that he had on people was a gift from god. He will be missed by all of his family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

You were my childhood friend. I thought
we would never survive Ms. Petree as our
sub when Mr. Gordon was out for an extended
illness, but we did! You kept me laughing and
as you know that is one thing I do best! You
always made me laugh and I loved running
into you especially when you were with your
side-kick Johnny(love you too)! I am sorry that
I didn't get up to see you for I knew not what
was to be. You would have ended up making
me laugh wouldn't you Todd? I am very sad and
I will miss you my sweet friend. Take care and tell
Griffin I love him. I will take of the empire Todd.
