Michael Todd Deschamps, 50, passed away Sunday, July 22, 2012, at the St. George Medical Center. Todd was born March 10, 1962, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to Dorothy Nye and Gerald Deschamps (deceased).
The Guest Book is expired.
Todd was raised in Logan, Utah, and graduated from USU in landscape architecture. Working for a global development firm, he was able to travel the world creating corporate and suburban landscape developments in California, Hawaii, Singapore, Malaysia and Australia. Due to failing health he moved from Australia back to his family in Utah.
Todd deeply loved the beauty and wonder of nature. He was quick to tell a good story animated with his special form of high energy and humor. Todd loved to laugh at a good joke. His two litter-mate cats, Brother and Sister, helped Todd survive his physical hardships. Todd loved them and watched over them like a father cares for his children.
Todd kept a positive attitude throughout his health complications; he fought a good fight. He now rests in peace.
He is survived by his loving partner Brent Pettit of Mesquite, Nev.; mother Dorothy Nye John of Logan; sisters Lisa Deschamps (Marilyn) of Salt Lake City and Dena Demler (Shannon) of Wellsville; and many extended family members and friends.
The family would like to thank Dr. Michael Visick and his staff for their exceptional dedication and support throughout the years.
A private family graveside service will be held in his memory in Logan. Interment will take place in the Logan Cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of Spilsbury Mortuary.
