November 9, 1958 – July 14, 2022

We have been recently informed of the passing of retired firefighter Thomas Todd. Thomas passed on Thursday, July 14th, 2022, from brain cancer a recognized occupational disease.

Firefighter Todd started his 33-year career with the North York Fire Department on June 11th, 1984, and retired on June 30, 2017. Todd started his career in A-platoon at station 112 and moved to station 122A, then in 1998 to R115A, and finally in 2010 to P123A.

In speaking with the family advocate, the family will be having a private family service. This may change and as information becomes available we will update and notify the membership. I have reached out and explained our protocol for our LODD service and its significance. Ultimately we will honour the family’s wishes.

Thomas Todd’s passing will be considered a Line of Duty Death, and we will be submitting Thomas’s name for The IAFF Martin E. Pierce commemorative medal and will be memorialized on the Toronto, Ontario, Canadian, and international memorial walls.

Thomas Todd Obituary
November 9, 1958 – July 14, 2022
Firefighter, friend, father, grandfather, and son: As firefighters do, he fought the good fight, albeit a short one, and passed away as he chose, quickly and pain-free! Left to share and cherish his many and unlimited recollections, details of life and his vast collection of stories are his father, Robert Ernest Todd; his brother, Richard Ernest Todd (Darci): his children: Shannon Daigle (Jeremy) and Bryan Todd, grandson Theo Daigle, his nieces Courtney Goodmurphy (Tyler, Lexi, and Ayden) and Shelbi Todd. His many former colleagues, many of whom he called brothers, and friends retired from the Toronto Fire Department, the extended Todd Family, and all whose lives Tom touched. Those loved by Tom and predeceased him are his mother, Joan Patricia Todd, and his sister, Debra Todd Wetherall. A special thank you to Keith MacIsaac, friend, business associate, and champion for Tom’s coordinated care over the past few months, with whom Tom felt unconditional friendship, love, and compassion in his final days. Also of note is the love, support, and care for Tom and Uncle Ernie by all of the related Todds’ through the short journey during Tom’s illness. Tom will be interred privately followed by a Celebration of Life honoring both him and his Mom who passed away last Fall. Arrangements are entrusted to O’Neill Funeral Home of Stouffville.

Our condolences go out to Firefighter Thomas Todd’s family, friends, and co-workers.

Rest in Peace brother Todd
