    Angie it’s been so many years since we have seen each other. It’s your long lost cousin, Carol’s daughter. You and me and Toby played all the time when we were young. I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Aunt Pippi told me today, wish I knew sooner I would have come. Take care in the days ahead.

    I had the pleasure of working with Todd (a.k.a. Bubba) for many, many years. Anytime that something went wrong with the computers/internet, the solution was simply, “TODD – HELP”. He was a devoted husband, employee, co-worker and friend to all that knew him. He will be sadly missed by everyone. Angela, I am so very sorry for your loss.

    Angela, My thoughts and prayers are with you and Todd’s family. Todd taught me everything I know about computers and especially CADD. We spent alot of late hours together at GHP working hard, listening to music and he loved to talk about you. He loved you so much. I pray that love sustains and comforts you through this difficult time.

    Todd was a great coworker, fisherman, outdoorsman, and friend! He was always the “go to” guy during my years at GHP. If it needed to be done, you could count on Todd to come up with a way to do it. We’ll miss you greatly! Angela, God Bless you – treasure the time you had with Todd.

    Toddie – What a blessing to have known you. You were our big teddy bear at the office, and boy us girls really knew how to get your dander up. I will miss whining for you to come fix my computer, printer or adjust my radio clock from standard time to daylight savings time. Through all the years, you have been a loyal and faithful employee of Gobbell Hays Partners, always maintaining the company’s best interest in every thing you did. Angela, I am so glad you and Todd had 19 wonderful years of marriage. Besides his wife you were his best friend and soulmate, and he loved you very much.
    Love, Anita.

    I want to say how very very sorry I am about Todd being sick and passing. I know you know all of what I’m going to say, but I want you to know a lot of other people know Todd’s good qualities too. Todd was a good man, a gentleman and the hardest worker Gobbell Hays Partners has ever had. He would tell it like it was and still have a good heart about it. I will miss your half smile, honesty talking Diet Coke drinking man. It has been hard for me to accept him being sick and with that said I really can not imagine the pain you have and are going through. I will always respect, admire and miss Todd. I want you to remember something for me; if you EVER need anything please call. I can and want to help you in anyway possible.

    The following is a collection of several entries to the guestbook.

    I got to thinking about how Todd did things in the workplace and in everyday life. Whenever we would go fishing things would never go as planned but we would still have a good time. Even if it involved me wrapping a Lucky 13 around his arm and yanking while trying to cast. The “look” and “what have you done” comments made me laugh. I remembered the… See More first time we took out Todd’s first boat that he bought. He had spent weeks getting it ready to take out. There were loose screws rattling around inside the carburetor and various other things but he deemed it ready. We decided to play it cautious and not push our luck on the maiden voyage so we were doing to not stray to far from the boat ramp. With our normal luck at fishing we didn’t want to end up stranded on Gilligan’s Island either. After what seemed like an eternity we got the boat in the water and finally got the engine started. We drove in circles testing the boat and all seemed okay. Time to go fishing! Or so we thought. Todd picked out a spot along the bank that looked like a good place to troll. It was a little windy that day so he stopped a good distance from the bank so we could get our rods ready. After eagerly getting my lure ready I let the trolling motor into the water and eased in closer. The wind was pushing us in also. After a few casts Todd told me to move us out some as he was afraid the bottom of the boat might get damaged. I hit reverse on the trolling motor and nothing happened. All the while Todd telling me to hurry up. It’s not working I told him. The motor is running but we’re not moving. Then I got the”look”. What did you do he asked. I only hit reverse I told him. He then said I must have gotten something tangled around the prop. I pulled the trolling motor out of the water to check it and the prop was gone. I said you do have another prop don’t you. He replied no. The wind was shoving us into the bank, I ended up having to use the paddle to keep from damaging the boat hull. We then decided we would just fish out further from shore. Todd tried to start the boat and it wouldn’t. The wind was picking up and really banging us against the shore. He then grabbed this snazzy little expandable aluminum paddle to help me get us away from the bank. It lasted about 10 seonds before it broke. He finally managed to get the boat started and we headed back to the ramp. We may have not caught any fish but we made a memorable moment. From then on I was always at the back of the boat when we went fishing. I didn’t get to operate the trolling motor anymore. I miss ya bud.

    I only knew Todd for a couple of years, but in that time it became obvious that we were from the same side of the river. We quickly became patrons of the the conservative republican party and loved to squash the liberials at every opportunity. He was one of the most knowledgable, self-educated people I ever knew and helped me in all kinds of areas from cars to computers. I will surely miss him and feel that I have known a truely great American!

    I had the privilege of working with Todd for almost 23 years at Gobbell Hays Partners. The role Todd filled as IT Director is definitely a back office / support position that is so very critical and so very demanding as technology and the firm’s systems needs are everchanging.

    Todd took it all in stride and always went above and beyond in his efforts to keep our various systems up and running so that as a firm we could stay connected and provide services to our clients. He was the 24/7 guy for GHP. But as important as his professional contributions have been to the GHP family, it is far more important to note that Todd was a good man who loved Angela, his family, his friends, and his pets. We will miss Todd here at GHP, but his spirit will live on with those of us who knew him and loved him.

    My favorite memories are the routine trips to the
    Arcade with Todd and the “Fat Boys” lunch train. Todd would always come out of his shell at lunchtime and made us feel like insiders when he gave us his take on office gossip, politics and beyond. Todd never held anything back at lunchtime, but even among all the jokes and carrying on, he was always tactful and level-headed and my respect for him never wavered.

    When I was at GHP I think we had the bright idea of giving employees 2 Southwest tickets as part of an employee of the quarter thingee many years ago. So for Todd’s reward I talked to him about the tickets and asked him to take some vacation so he and Angela could go away somewhere, anywhere. But he wouldn’t take the tickets. When I kept insisting he finally came out and said he didn’t want to leave his home and his family and pets (“the menagerie” I called it). And it finally hit me what a sweet guy was behind his gruff exterior. I will always remember him for his kindness and thoughtfulness in helping others

    I will always cherish the beautiful wooden rocking horse he made for my son when he was born in 2006, Todd was very talented. It sits at the foot of our stairs at our house and everytime I see it, I think of Todd. My son gets on it all the time and rocks back and forth…..I will always cherish it. 🙂 Beth

    Todd – you we miss you so much….. my heart goes out to the family.
