I was so fortunate to have such a loving, caring son as you, I will miss you terribly. We had some wonderful times together. You will always be in my heart and thoughts forever.I love you so much. Mom
Todd was a special person. The news of his tragic accident was heartbreaking, and flooded us with the memories of the many good times we enjoyed with Todd; around a dining table at the Salishan pro shop and at our homes in Asotin and at Salishan, where Todd walked int the living room for the first time, looked above the fireplace, and said, "Hi, Dario". How many guys would recognize a Dario Campanile? That was impressive, but what impressed us the most about Todd was his good humor, honesty, and his respect and courtesy for all. Todd was a true gentleman. An enlarged framed photo of Todd and his good friend, Jeff hangs on the wall next to our desk - an ever present reminder of one heck of a great guy. The light of his warmth will always be with us. We will miss him - A lot.
My beloved brother, Todd. You are and will always be in my heart. Thank you for being my brother. Thank you for being you. You touched many lives. Thank you for the things we shared. I will treasure them forever. Your sister, Carol
Margaret, I was so saddened to hear about Todd's tragic accident. Many happy memories of our younger years at Laurelhurst and our wonderful Camp Fire Group with Mrs. Lansinger as our leader. I am sending my love and condolences. Mary Jean Pagter
We will all miss Tod. He was a friend to so many up here...especially at the cabin at Port Gamble Bay. He loved our see food and oysters, crab and clams and we will always remember the razor clams he brought to share....our favorite. We were fortunate to have known him. We won't forget him.
We got to know Todd through my son when they both worked in the pro shop at Salishan. When my husband and I were adding a media room above the garage at our former house in 2005, Todd suggested we also add a deck overlooking the back yard. Although we had already had windows installed, we followed Todd's suggestion, had the windows removed and added French doors to lead to a deck. After the deck was built, we attached an engraved brass plaque, naming it “The Todd Deck!”. This past August we had a craftsman-style shed built at our new home and after learning of Todd's death, we are going to have another brass plaque made this time calling it “Todd's Caddyshack” with a wire sculpture of a golfer next to it. My brother was a tour-playing golf pro who died in 1985 at the age of 52. Today we envision Rod and Todd playing a round of golf together, shooting under par, of course!
We understand the pain in losing such a great guy and our condolences go out to the family and all of Todd's friends. Our world won't be the same without him in it.

While living on the Oregon coast Todd sometimes enjoyed stopping by Nana's Irish Pub, where I work, having a pint and chatting with the other locals. He could strike up a conversation with anyone, had a great sense of humor and we were always happy to see him walk through the door. Our condolences to Todd's family and friends. We were saddened to hear of his passing.
I will miss our camping, crabbing, clamming trips together. Todd, uncle Todd to my kids, was a huge part of our life and he will be greatly missed.
I will miss you Todd! It was always a joy to have you at the cabin! You made me laugh ... you always shared your razor clams ... you loved the beach and the beauty of it up there ... You were an amazing friend to my brother, thank you! You will be missed by many. Lots of LOVE ... Katie
We will miss you Todd.

I still can't believe he's gone. Even though we never lived close to each other, you could tell we were family when we saw each other. He always had such a great love for life and everyone who knew him will miss his great smile. RIP cousin. Dede
I worked with Todd at Lewis River Golf Course. In the short time I knew Todd he was an amazing co-worker. No matter how busy he was he always took a few minutes to check in with me and ask how my day was going. He was upbeat and positive. Todd inspired me. I teach and we shared conversations about kids and learning and how there is always something new to learn, regardless of what your age. My son, Shane, works at Lewis River as well. Todd said that Shane was full of questions about everything and would ask him all sorts of things, related to golf or not! I shared that I hoped Shane was not "bugging" Todd with all of that. His response was, "Are you kidding me? I love the way his mind questions everything." I was barely beginning to get to know Todd and both my son and I were shocked at his passing. My deep condolences to his family and friends. It sounds like Todd was an incredible person.
I'm remembering that Mexican dinner we had together after you spent that awesome day at Seafair. We had so much fun! The bonds and love of family are never broken even by death.
Todd, you are my favorite brother...ok, so you're my only brother...I love you immensely and am proud to have had the opportunity to share good times with you in this life. It was GREAT to see you in Long Beach this summer.
Friends since high school the many good times we had together will always be remembered. I will miss you dearly.
The light you brought to our family will never fade. Your smile still brings us a lasting joy. You are missed, and we pray for strength for your family in this overwhelming moment.
Will miss you Todd ~ you were such a GREAT friend to me, I will always remember the good times together...
So shocked and sad to see this in the paper this morning. Our thoughts go out to Todd's daughter and the rest the Bekins family.
