Todd was a sophomore at Westerville North High School where he was a proud member of the wrestling team. In his spare time, he enjoyed spending time with his friends. His real passion was for wrestling. He also volunteered as a youth wrestling coach for the Westerville United Wrestling Team.
Todd dreamed of becoming a wrestler for the United States Marine Corps Wresting Team and to be a physiologist. His passion to make others happy was overwhelming and his beautiful smile could light up the darkest room. Todd knew no strangers.
