Todd was born sooner than expected on November 8, 1960, in Madison, Wisconsin, the son of Richard and Wanda (Carpenter) Peters. From the beginning, as a medical miracle, Todd overcame the odds.

As a boy Todd loved meeting new people and helping others in need. This thread ran throughout his life. He would visit his grandparents in Clinton every summer, learning to “work” with his grandfather at Carpenter’s Gas Station. At the age of sixteen, their family grew to four as Todd welcomed his sister, Nicole. He graduated from St. Paul High School, Norwalk, Ohio, with the class of 1979. On November 4, 1995, Todd married Tammy Key.

Over the years, Todd joined the family business that his parents had built in manufacturing, working for R & D Equipment, Inc. and ACT, Inc, both located in Norwalk, Ohio, and also their partner company in England. Todd’s personable way served him well, working in customer service, sales, and logistics. In 2006, he moved to Sabula to live near his parents in their retirement. Todd began working as a safety technician for Jacobs Engineering. A short time later he began his battle with cancer. Throughout his illness, Todd remained strong, upbeat and independent. He even found the energy and time to help a friend build a successful business. He cherished his close friends and family. Todd was a skilled pool player, avid coin collector and had a natural way with animals. He loved classic rock music.

Todd will be dearly missed by his parents, Richard and Wanda Peters of Sabula; his sister, Nicole Peters of Sandusky, Ohio; along with several aunts, uncles and cousins.  

He is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Harry and Lucinda Carpenter; his paternal grandfather, Howard Peters; and his paternal grandmother, Hazel (Scott) Mellen.
