Memories Timeline


  1. I am very sorry for the loss of Tod. He was always so quick with a smile and a joke, I always enjoyed seeing him. Love to you, Vicki, family and friends.
    Elizabeth LaRue and family

  2. I have no words. So sorry to hear about Tod. He was always smiling and stopped to chat with everyone at the gym. My thoughts are with his family.

  3. I just learned of Tod’s passing, I’m so so sorry. He was the bright light for me at the gym. Always had some smart ass remark!! I loved it, always made me laugh.

  4. I am devastated to hear this news of Tod’s passing. He was doing what he loved….out on his bike. I have chatted with Tod at the gym for the last 20 years and even out on the C 470 bike trail when we passed each other flashing the peace sign. My prayers are with Vickie and the entire family as they mourn Tod. He will be missed, but his spirit will live on out on the bike trails of South Denver. I am so very sorry.

    • Our deepest sympathies and condolences. Just having learned of his passing. My son and I had unfortunately come upon the accident scene as first responders were arriving. We had just come off the C470 bike path ourselves, returning home. We had greatly hoped and prayed that he was going to recover. Our prayers are with your family in this time of tragedy and loss.

  5. I met Tod years ago at the dog park at Chatfield and then we realized we both worked out at 24 Fitness. My hubby and I would honk and wave as he rode through Heritage Green where we lived. Tod loved riding and was always quick to smile. He will be missed. Our heart and prayers go out to all his loved ones.

  6. We were so so sorry to hear of Tod’s accident. We can only imagine how devastating this loss is to all of you! Our deepest and most sincere wishes for you.

  7. Dear Vicki,
    Such a loss for you and all of us who are fortunate enough to have spent time with dear Tod. I was blessed to work with him on our HOA board. What a trooper getting things done at his expense, too. I will certianly miss Tod, miss waving to him as he rides by and send you and your family strong thoughts and prayers as your work through missing Tod. Take Care, Meredith S.

  8. I worked with Tod when he was President of the Mira Vista Homeowners Association. Tod had a real interest in keeping up the neighborhood whatever it would take. He was good at following up on projects in the neighborhood with the idea of keeping up the property values and doing what was best for MV. He will be big time missed. What a tragedy.

  9. I am so sorry for the loss of Tod. I didn’t know him very well because I would just say Hi to him at 24 hour fitness but always admired him for being so disciplined in working out and riding his bike everywhere. My sympathy goes out to all of his loved ones….His wonderful Spirit will be missed….

  10. I was shocked when I heard word yesterday of Todd’s passing. I didn’t know him that well but always admired his committed workout ethic at 24hr. He always responded with “Hi Don” when I addressed him and we both had a common deep love for black labs!
    My prayers for Vicki and family are there. Todd will be deeply missed.


  11. Dear Vicky

    Tod was a good friend, a good human being, a good man. He was always willing to help me with things I couldn’t do around my house. I will miss him terribly.


  12. Dear Vicky,
    I was a good ( gym) friend of Tod’s. This was certainly a tragedy and a shock! I will miss his fun discussions about your trips both past and upcoming to see the Rolling Stones! I will also miss all his pictures he would text me of your three beautiful labs. Please know that Tod will be greatly missed and he has been a part of my gym life forever.

    Thinking if you and your family,

    Susie Unruh
