Gary David Todd, age 70, passed away peacefully on June 6, 2020 in Edgewood, WA in the home he built 40 years ago.
He was born on September 5, 1949 to parents David and Rosemary Todd of Puyallup, WA, and was one of five siblings: Gregory, Nancy, Sheila, and Michael. Gary was a fourth generation descendant of pioneers from Illinois that settled in the Puyallup Valley.
In 1977, he married the love of his life Linda. With that union, he embraced her four children Erin, Elena, Marla, and Brett. Later that year, they welcomed their beloved daughter Malea. Gary and Linda were married for 42 wonderful years until Linda passed away in 2019.
When Gary was 17 years old he purchased his first John Deere Tractor, even before he bought a car. He attended Bates Technical College in Tacoma, WA to learn how to work on large motors. He started his own farming business in the late 70’s. He would cut, rake, bale, and plow fields throughout Pierce and King County. In 1990, his wife Linda, started Ashley’s Limousine Service, and he became a chauffeur as well.
Gary prided himself in farming his own land and building his home, in which he created lasting memories for his wife, children, and grandchildren.
Gary is survived by his children and their spouses, Erin and Dean Kramer, Elena Todd, Marla Todd, Brett Todd, and Malea and Corey Gibb. Grandchildren Mackenzie Kramer, Ashley Payne, Michael Payne, Andrea Entz, Alisha Todd, Trevor Littrell, Lauren Todd, Parker Gibb, and Treyson Gibb.
