From the time I first met this family,i could feel the love within. From1981, at the Salvation Army , you and your family welcomed me into the corps. You were such a sweet kind man and I know your family will greatly miss you. With deepest prayers for the family,God needed you to help hold down the fort in Heaven. May those who knew you live as if you never left, and hold you forever in their hearts.

I’m proud to say that I’ve known this man, as a father figure, positive role model, and true gentleman, for over 30 years of my life! God doesn’t make them any better than Master Chief Petty Officer, United States Navy (Retired) Frederick H Tody! Or, as I’ve been blessed to know him over the years, simply and humbly, just Fred! Rest in peace, Paw Paw.
