Tributes pour in on Todd’s death
He was a great hockey player and a smart hockey mind. He was really funny and I had great times partying with him and talking with him years ago. A life not without struggles and blessings. Very sad to hear of his passing.
I remember that, but wait, you cheered for the team? No Habs fan cheered for SJ Maple Laughs. Travis Canning, when did you turn?
Thank you for sharing this beautiful memory, Mark. I think we are all shocked to learn of Todd’s passing. I send my deepest condolences to all who loved him, especially his mother, sister and children. Todd’s dad and my dad were very close friends and I remember having to call my dad and tell him when Todd’s dad passed away. I hope they are all playing rink hockey together in heaven
Gilly would light up a room. He always had a smile. He will be missed. Thoughts are with his family.
