    I never met Todd, but felt like I knew him--at least his character. I think I first became aware of him years ago in the early days of IDPA, on an IDPA email thread (listserve?). He was always so well though out, and just decent. Years later his name pops in my head for some reason and I google him, landing here. This forum speaks to the TLG difference. High quality people (I can't believe some of the people I get to read and learn from here), high quality discussion, and a profound sense of decency. It all fits.

    I regret never getting to train with him, but I will always appreciate what I have learned from him. He did it well.

    I can't add anything that has not been said already. I only knew him through his writings and postings. What a loss, and what a battle he fought. My thoughts and prayers to Todd's family and friends.

    How is Todd's family doing? Does anybody know? Hope they're holding up okay.

    I think we're all hoping for that. It can't be easy, but on the other hand, he fought cancer for a lot of years. There's probably some relief in knowing he's not suffering anymore. It was that sort of bittersweet situation when my aunt passed away last fall. She had similarly fought cancer for many years, and while the whole family felt the loss keenly, we also knew that her pain was over. Even less than a year later, we're remembering her for who she was and how she lived more than the pain of losing her. Hopefully Todd's family can have that soon. Given the existence of the other thread requesting pictures, I assume they're aware of the outpouring of love and support from this community, and that must help at least a little.

    For whatever reason, I can't sleep. For whatever reason, the passing of Todd is still weighing heavy on my heart. Cancer has touched my immediate family on more than one occasion, and has stolen from me years and countless memories. I'm not an emotional guy, my wife has caused me to cry once, joyfully when our daughter was born. She still talks about it with friends and family, boasting that she is the only one capable of bringing me to tears. As I sit here posted up in the dark, staring out the back of our house passing time as overwatch for our outside cats, all I can think about is smoking a coyote and the passing of TLG. Tears, streaming down my face in utter silence, I'm reminded how much I hate cancer and how cold and ruthless it is. I do my best not to "hate" anything, as I think it's such a waste of time and energy to feel that negatively about anything. I fucking hate cancer.

    I will find a way to be better today. Better today than I was yesterday. As a husband, father, and human being. Tomorrow is not promised, and the passing of Todd is a painful reminder of that.

    Rampage dudes.

    Thank you, on behalf of ToddG's family, for your remembrance of him. This thread, as well as the comments on Facebook have been an amazing, sometimes overwhelming, outpouring of support. The posts have brought many tears and smiles. As family members, we all thought ToddG was pretty awesome but your comments have underscored the reach and impact his life had. Thank you.

    As his wife, I am so thankful to have been able to spend nearly 25 years with Todd. Every day, I knew how lucky I was to be with him. I have lost my best friend, cheerleader, range partner (although I never went as much as he would have liked), the one who always made me smile, my kick-in-the pants when I needed it, my soul mate, my one true love. My heart is broken. With the support of family, close friends and of course Freyja, we doing our best ... taking it day-by-day, sometimes minute-by-minute.

    He'd have a smile on his face that his death is what got me to participate in the Forum.

    My sincerest condolences, KimberlyG. I helped my mother through the loss of both my father and her second husband. You definitely have tough days ahead, but know that you are in the prayers of many of us here.

    From the posts he wrote about you, it sounded like you were all of that to him as well. As MichaelD said, sincerest condolences.

    Lots of guys complain about their wives when they are out with the other guys. Todd never did. He always insisted he got the much better end of the deal.

    Waaaay out west.
    I was off the grid for a few days and noticed the new logo as soon as I logged in. This is very sad news, my condolences to his friends and family. This forum and many of Todd's posts have had a huge positive influence on my shooting. I only wish I'd found the forum sooner and taken the chance to train with him when he was in my neck of the woods a few years ago.
