    I will miss our conversations about classic rock and roll. He was a very intellectual man. Go, be with God.

    You were one of the best friends I ever had. So so many fond memories from back in the jr high and high school days, and the San Francisco years, and the Breckenridge years, and the 4th Street years, and and and… Thank you one more time for the Pixies, and the countless other great shows we saw together! I will truly miss you Todd. I hope you find some peace out there. Love you my brother!

    Just found out today, from Facebook reminder on Todd’s birthday. I lived down the street from Todd in San Francisco, and we shared some good times. He was a good soul, in addition to fun-loving guy who loved music. I send my condolences to his loved ones.

    Todd was “my grumpy old roommate” from 1993 to 1996 in San Francisco at Clinton Park. He took me to a bunch of concerts, introduced me to great people and made me laugh a lot! I hope you found some peace where you are. Cheers Todd!
