|Let the memory of Todd be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Todd Voigt, 45, born on August 6, 1970 and passed away on May 7, 2016. We will remember him forever.
"Yesterday was such a sad day for Todd. I was missing you on your birthday very much. Life is very different without you and we miss you! Holding you in my heart always. Mom"
"Thinking of Todd on his birthday. Wishing he were here with all of his family and friends who love him and miss him so much. I read once that stars are the openings from which our loved ones in heaven shine down to let us know they are happy. Tonight, I pray for a sky filled with stars! And as I look up toward heaven, I will search for the brightest star of all, because surely that one will be Todd . . . Smiling down with a heart full of love and great joy. Love you always Todd . . . and so grateful to have had the honor of being your Aunt Janet."
"Happy birthday Todd! I miss you so much! I think about you all the time. Today I am remembering your surprise party for your 30th!! Thanks to your mom- we had all those great pictures of you all over the house.. Boy were you shocked when you walked in. I love you always and forever babe!!"
"Happy Birthday Todd! Don't party to hearty up there! Miss you!"
"Happy Birthday brother! We Love You
Natty, Cassidy, Anthony and Bella xoxoxo
I think about you everyday."
"Todd...wishing you were here rocking it out with me at Lakeview Amphitheater with Tesla, REO, and Def Leppard. Miss you my friend."
"As Mother's and Father's days have passed...I wanted you, Linda and Rich to know that I prayed for your peace. In memory of the great parents you were to Todd, sending love to both of you."
"Linda, Richard, Natalie, and Andrew, I am so very sorry to hear of Todd's passing. I want you to know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I have such fond memories of Todd from time spent at your house in my younger years. He was always smiling and so easy to be around. Hoping all your cherished memories will bring you comfort in the days ahead.
Sending all my love-"
"Dearest Linda,Rich,Andrew and Natty. I can't even express how sad I am for you. I can't believe I have known Todd for 41 years. So much comes to mind. Spending so much time at your house when he was so young. Playing games, backyard days on Wexford. That awesome smile he always had. He was a great son,brother and uncle. I pray you will find peace soon. Love you. For."
"Todd, there were so many things I admired about you, how easy you were to talk with, your smile, your loyalty, but most of all I loved your heart. You will be missed here but I know you are resting in the arms of Jesus."
"So sorry for your loss. It was a total shock to hear that Todd had passed. Todd will always be remembered by the Security Staff at BMS."
"My great nephew, Todd, was always special from the day he was born especially to me. Todd was born on my daddy, Carl's birthday. Daddy died in an airplane crash at the age of 44. Todd only knew him from stories and pictures. Todd was blessed with his great grandfather's love of life and a caring and generous heart. Carl Spriggs had a heart of gold and it was passed on to his great grandson, Todd. I am missing Todd and his big bear hug for me, with a smile and an " I love you, Aunt Betty".
So, I love you, my nephew, Todd.. We miss you.
Our comfort is knowing how special and beloved you are to the Lord, on your continuing journey of Eternal Life."
"From Robert DeFeo: We have been together since we were 6 yrs old and I can't imaging you not being here anymore. The hours we would spend together at my old house playing pool, watching wrestling and drinking root beer. No matter what happened in our lives we were always there for each other. You were so good to each of my children and they loved when "Uncle Todd" came over. There was never a dull moment with you. I will miss you my best friend."
"When I hear the Carpenters song 'Close To You', I've always had a tear. That was 1969 to 1970, and Linda was carrying Todd. I always thought those words would guide Todd's life and it seems they have by the written tributes of Todd's life. We would sing it at the top of our lungs to Todd. And when he was born, yup, we sang it to him as an infant. I will choose to remember those sweetest of times...the 46 years since, we have seen many changes in our lives. Our lives have gone in different directions, but Linda and I remain the dearest of friends and my heart aches for the whole family. All of those blessings; the forever love, the friendship, the laughter, the joys and the sorrows of life are ours. Forever Close To You."
"My brother, I miss him so incredibly bad. My mind is being flooded with childhood memories I had forgotten. I burst into laughter in the middle of my sobbing. All the times I told on him when it was really me, raiding his bedroom for quarters so I could go buy baseball cards, snagging his Led Zepplin cd's knowing I would probably get my butt kicked and so carefully put it back in it's place so he wouldn't find out. As a child I always wanted him to be proud of me. I always wanted him to know even though I was a pain in the butt little sister that I loved him and I looked up to him. I will forever remember hearing him say "Hey sis, what's up" and the fist bump.
My last memory of Todd was in my mother's drive way. He came out to say hey and Bella went over to him. He picked her up and he had that "toddy" smile. She told him the longest story in her baby babble and he just nodded grinning ear to ear listening. He adored my children and I teared up watching them. I didn't know that would be the last time I saw my brother. Todd, I will hold on to that memory until we meet again. This pain is too great but I know you are now at peace with the Lord."
"As Todd's grandparents living in California and Florida most of Todd's life, we missed so much. Nevertheless, we saw Todd turn frustration into contentment.and take himself by the bootstraps and pull himself up to be a viable student and a reliable employee. Those who speak of him speak well as do we.
Robert & Virginia Spriggs"
"As I have sat here for the last couple of days, trying to digest that Todd passed, I have found it very hard to come up with the words. I am so very sad that this fine man is gone. I have known Todd since he was a little boy. I watched him struggle and fight to be one of the "kids." My boys took Todd under their wings and made sure no one " messed" with Todd. I will always remember his kind, loving, and happy heart. No matter what life threw at Todd, he always had a smile and a laugh. I can still see all the neighborhood kids playing out in front of my house, Todd included.Baseball games down at the park, throwing footballs in the street. Todd was a fixture at my house, and we gladly treated him as another "son." You couldn't help but love Todd. His smile and chuckle would light up a room. My best memory of Todd is, when he stayed at our house for a bit. He was always " bustin" on me about one thing or another. He would always be grinning from ear to ear, and say "Mrs. D" I am only kidding. I love you Todd you,and my heart broke when I found out the news you had left us. Heaven has gained such a beautiful soul. I pray you are at peace, and hope you know how missed you will be. Rest in peace "Toddy" To Rich, Linda, Andrew, and Natty, there are no words to comfort you or make this any better for all of you. Just know that Todd was loved by so many, and you all will be in my thoughts and prayers. Love to you all Anne Donahue"
"I did not know Todd personally, but do know, (by way of family) that he had a reputation for being a very kindhearted person. To all of his family and loved ones, you have my most sincere sympathy. Certainly he will be missed, and obviously he had an impact on your lives. May you find peace as you look back on sweet memories. Praying that God will ease your pain."
"I still hear you saying my name in Forrest Gump style "Jen-nay." You were always so nice to me even when I was an annoying little kid. Nat and I took great joy in stealing your CDs out of your room because you had impeccable taste in music.
Every time I walked into the Butternut house I could always plan on seeing Todd's giant smile. I regret that I haven't seen him in a couple of years. I thought we would have more time.
Thank you for being a gentle soul with a pure heart. I will miss you dearly."
"I'll miss you Todd! In the short time that I've known you I think your an amazing person, if the world had more people like you in it, it would be a so much better place! I'm sorry you had to go so soon. Can't wait to see you again. Forever your boy Randy! Glad I got a chance to meet you. Till we meet again cya later Todd!!!!"
"There are no words.....he was such a warm, big hearted guy, who surely brightened my day whenever I saw him. He is at the Lord's table now, full and bountiful, forever more. I will miss you Todd, so very much.........Vivie"
"I am very sorry to learn of Todd's passing. I new him from his time as a volunteer member of DFD.
Though I have not seen Todd in many years, quite regularly I'd see something or hear a song that reminded me of him and it always made me smile, with fond memories.
This is very sad news. I offer my condolences to the Voigt family."
"This news makes me sad. Todd was a genuine, loving person. He was welcomed into our home (Anne & Me) as a child and both Brian & Michael always treated Todd like the brother he was. While I haven't seen Todd in many years... I only have fond memories of him. Thoughts for Rich, Linda, Andrew & Nat."
"I have so many memories of Todd from the young boy in my backyard playing with my boys to the grown man he had become. My fondest memory of you as a boy was when my son swung a golf club and sliced the side of your nose. You wanted a Popsicle and you were sucking on that with blood running down your face and wouldn't give it up. A doctor visit on that one. I can see you in the Barnard's pool splashing around. I see you riding that bicycle all over the neighborhood. I remember Graduation and how happy you were. On to your wedding and how happy you were that day. I see you sitting on the couch when we were gathered for birthdays and holidays. You were most always there. I remember how much you loved being an Uncle. I remember you at the kitchen table where we were most often chatting away.
Even when things weren't going your way, you put up the good front and hardly ever complained.
Todd , you were loved by all and will forever be in our memories. Our lives will be forever changed because of the way you touched us and because of your loss.
I know you are now at peace and making all your friends and relatives that passed before you happier with your presence. May you enjoy the next phase of your being and guard over us with all that love that you have .
Until we meet again, LOVE you Todd!"
"It is difficult to imagine our world without Todd, but there was a time when the world existed without him, and sadly, that time is with us again. May we be ever thankful to have experienced the space in between; may the very best of the man be the invisible thread and unknowable force woven within the tapestry of our lives, to be handed on and on and on..."
"I am never at a loss for words, but tonight I can't seem to find the right ones to describe how much my heart hurts because we have lost Todd. We used to love exchanging Facebook messages and I went back to read some of them and found this one from Todd in 2009:
"Hi aunt Janet, whats up? just wanted to write you and Doug quick and say that I love your new puppy. So cute. Also can't wait to see u when u come up and visit. I am so excited I cant stand it. I miss u guys so much and wish we could see u all more often."
Because we live so far away, we didn't get to see Todd as much as we wished. But we have so many special memories . . . Thank you for letting me be your Aunt and your friend Todd . . . You made the world a better place and you will live in our hearts forever. Love you my sweet nephew."
Have a suggestion for us?
