It is with deep sadness, that we announce the sudden passing of our Todd on May 31, 2021 at St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 52.
Todd is survived by his beloved wife DeeDee; sons, Robert (Erika), Jason; brother Scott (Kristen); sister Stacey (John); sisters-in-law, Lori, Tammy (David), Lianne (Leigh); brothers-in-law, Butch (Theresa) and Mike (Sheri); nieces, Steffany, Julia, Lara, Kelsey; nephews, Michael, Adam, Owen, Cody, Matt, Brent, Brandon, Dustin; and great-nieces, Emma and Ava. He is predeceased by his auntie Linda and his wonderful parents, Ken and Sandra.
On July 3, 1968 Todd was born in Winnipeg. From a young age Todd is remembered for his friendly big smile. After working several years as a Journeyman Carpenter, Todd
literally built up his own construction company and enjoyed having each of his boys work with him in the summer. Todd is known for being a helpful, loyal, hardworking, honest, humorous and a thoughtful person. Todd really loved his family and friends, fishing, hockey, "The Bombers", motocross, being at the cabin, going to Hawaii, sharing his vast knowledge with his boys, and to his surprise; his cat Sandy. He had a generous and caring heart with animals and people in need.
Recently diagnosed with cancer, Todd received lots of love and support from his family and friends. Thank you and love to Trent, Lori, Tammy, Lianne, Gaylene and Brent and to so many others.
The family wishes to thank all the staff at CancerCare and the St. Boniface CCU for all their efforts when Todd's heart failed.
A Christian Burial Service will be held at Chapel Lawn on June 15 at 2:00 p.m.
In memory of Todd, donations may be made to the Humane Society.

Condolences & Memories (10 entries)
On behalf of myself and the Kachkan Family we were so shocked and saddened to hear of Todd's passing. Our deepest condolences. Our Thoughts and Prayers are with you. Todd will be surely missed. - Posted by: Darlene Belasco (Family Friend) on: Jun 15, 2021
Shock, disbelief, sadness, even anger, are some emotions that present when a passing of one such as Todd occurs. Why him, why now? I remember well watching Todd play hockey with my brother Dave and all the other guys from that dynasty North Kildonan team coached by none other than Ken King himself. Todd! Todd! - I can remember Ken calling out over the boards. Todd was called upon to be a leader on that team, though Ken never made his son its captain. After 16 year old season, the team split up - guys pursing other interests - and after that, I saw little of Todd until Dave's son was playing and Todd's son was a referee. Seeing Todd at the rink was great; it rekindled the old feelings of friendship which we all know age like a fine wine. We didn't see much of each other during our adult lives, but it was good to see Todd at the rink over the past ten years, and most recently, in 2019, at our father's funeral. It was a blessing for our family to have Todd in attendance that day, and we will never forget it. DeeDee, may the peace of Christ be with you, your boys, and to Scott and Stacey and their families, at this sad time. Dave is with me in this message of condolence. On behalf of both of us, out sincerest sympathy to you all. Todd was a gentleman and a leader, both on and off the ice. The unending Paradise is his now. Again, peace be with you all. - Posted by: Garry Strick (Friend) on: Jun 15, 2021
I first met Todd and his business partner Andrew on one of my construction jobs in 2008. It went very well. Todd and I subsequently worked on many other jobs, including work on my house. While we argued about timing and other issues, there was never any debate about the quality of Todd's work. I talked to Todd about a month ago and he told me of his condition. He was still optimistic that a new drug might help him. He was a good friend and colleague. My condolences to Todd's family on his passing. - Posted by: grant wichenko (friend and colleague) on: Jun 14, 2021
Dee Dee and family, I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Todd's passing. Being as I live on Vancouver Island, I haven't had the opportunity to know Todd as well as I would have liked. The times that I did spend time with him I was impressed by his kindness and his huge smile. A wonderful man to be sure! I know how much he will be missed by many. We are praying that God will hold you close, heal your heart and strengthen you all during this painful time. Love and prayers, Dale, David and Becky Willis - Nanaimo - Posted by: Dale Willis (nee McMillan) (cousin of Todd's father - Kenny King) on: Jun 14, 2021
I was very saddened and in disbelief at Todd's sudden passing. Although the frequency of our contact and conversations had diminished over the past few years because of life's ongoing business, when we did find time to speak, Todd's demeanor never changed. He would always just pick up where we left off and always wanted to know how you were doing, how the family was, how the hockey team was doing, he was genuine with his words and in every aspect of his life. Todd and I started playing hockey together when we were about five and we played together on the same team throughout our youth. We had many great memories playing in tournaments and winning championships of which Todd was always an integral part of our team's success. His competitive nature was as prevalent in sports as in his life however it was never at the expense of his integrity, which is something that I will always remember about Todd. My sincerest condolences to Deedee, his family and Scott and Stacey. Todd will be sorely missed by all who ever knew him. - Posted by: Paul Krueger (Friend) on: Jun 14, 2021
I was deeply saddened to learn of Todd’s passing. As kids we were neighbours; I lived behind the Kings. Todd was my “first friend”. We met at a very young age... I was always over there playing some kind of sport with Todd and Scott and was even lucky enough to go to their family cottage. As we grew up Todd loved his dirt bikes and eventually his little white truck. I think it was a Datsun lol... I remember booting around with home going to an arcade on Henderson during a blizzard lol. Unfortunately we lost touch as we graduated high school. I’ll always remember his kindness; Rest In Peace Todd. - Posted by: Trevor Woligrocki (Friend) on: Jun 13, 2021
Dee Dee, I am heartbroken to read of Todd’s passing.. this is such a shock… What a kind and loving Husband Father he was. You were very lucky, although he was taken much too soon… Words cannot express how saddened I am; and just remember all the good times you’ve had over the years…. He will be missed by many people I’m sure. My thoughts are with you today and days to come… Bev Harbour - Posted by: Bev Harbour (Kenny’s first Cousin) on: Jun 12, 2021
I was a neighbor of the Kings. I babysat all 3 kids. They were actually quite easy to care for and I loved Ken and Sandra. They were great to work with. Ken always walked me home even though I only lived 4 houses away. - Posted by: Cheryl Falk (Neighbor/babysitter) on: Jun 12, 2021
Todd is my brother-in-law. From the moment I met him, I knew he was a good man. He proved me right. Through the years, he loved and took care of my baby sister Deed, and then did the same for his boys. He loved his family so much. Todd always had a twinkle in his eyes. His heart was so full of love and joy. If a heart truly is judged by the amount of people who love - then Todd had the biggest heart of all. Loved so many, and loved by so many. We'll miss you at the dinner table at Christmas. I'll miss watching you pile your plate with a mound of Schnitzel so high. It always made me smile. I love you most: for how you loved your family. Thank you I will remember your happiness and joy, forever Lor - Posted by: Lorelei (Lori) (Sister In Law) on: Jun 12, 2021
We are so sad when we heard of Todd's passing . It is an understatement to say he was kind and caring, Todd was one of the best this is such a great loss. DeeDee and the boys were his life and he clearly loved them more than words can say. We met Todd thru hockey and he did work at our house as well, what a master of his trade. He would always tease me when do I get that invite to the pool but time went by and we never did get that chance. The world has lost a great man, but Heaven has recieved him. Todd always had something funny to say. Well Todd I hope you can keep our Stephane company until we all meet again. We Love you...The Siddle Family.Al,Corie,Jessica,Chantelle,and Shane - Posted by: Al and Corie Siddle (friends) on: Jun 12, 2021
