David Lee Todd

David Lee Todd, age 87, lifelong resident of West Chicago, passed away peacefully on November 26, 2023. He was born June 21, 1936 to Joe and Verdina (nee Mertes) Todd. David was united in marriage to the late Nancy (nee Patterson) Todd in 1956.

As a young boy Dave began his work career at Day’s Service Station in West Chicago, from there Dave worked for Krumpholtz Motors as an auto mechanic. He then began his operating engineering career at Lockert’s Land Improvement Co., where he was a proud member of Local 150 for 55+ years. He retired in 1997 after working at the West Chicago blacktop plant for Harry W. Kuhn. Dave couldn’t seem to get the operating engineer out him as he could be seen riding his green John Deere tractor all around the yard, even tried to race the ice cream truck.

Dave had a larger-than-life personality. His legacy will be the love of his family, especially his grandchildren and great granddaughters, along with a belly laugh that could be felt for miles.

Survivors include two daughters; Deborah Todd of West Chicago and Sandra Hensel of Carol Stream. Three grandchildren; Alyssa Weidner, Cody (Brittany) Hensel and Jacob Hensel. Two great granddaughters; Penelope and Violet Weidner and a brother Wayne Todd. He is preceded in death by his wife, parents, three sisters; Perdetta Pagan, Bonnie Jordan and Nancy France and two brothers; Elmer and Joseph Todd. Visitation will be held on Saturday, December 2, 2023 at 11 a.m. until time of service at 1 p.m. at Norris-Segert Funeral Home, 132 Fremont St., West Chicago. Pastor Sue Detterman officiating. Interment Private. 630-231-0060 or www.norrissegertfh.com
