Tod Hailed from Troy, NH until he was around 19 years old when he moved to the Boston area. Tod enjoyed boating, whether it was around Marina Bay or on the Saco River, he lived to show his family and friends a good time. Tod could tell you stories for days about his hobbies; he enjoyed golfing which he would tell you he would be better off relearning left-handed, skiing with close friends in North Conway and was a surprisingly good ice skater. Tod coached Little League in Allston for several years when his children were still living in the area. Tod was a mechanic for many years, owning his own shop and later retiring from another company. Tod was a very social man with lots of friends, he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
