Todd Everett Canady, 54, passed suddenly on Sunday, May 17, 2020, at St. Joseph's Hospital.
He was a man loved by many for his comical need to be obsessively on time and gruff, yet with a selfless attitude for all in need. Known for his love of flight, cars, beer and bows, he was forever creating something, be it a building schematic or a new model X-wing. He was a craftsman at heart with meticulous care given to everything he had a hand in forming from dog beds to relationships, especially with those of his wife, two daughters and many friends.
He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Alethia R. Morris Canady (50); their two daughters, Marena R. Canady (26) and Rachel A. Canady (23); and his youngest brother, Trey E. Canady.
Todd gained his wings and joined his older brother, Troy E. Canady; and parents, Jake E. Canady and Peggie J. Colbert Canady, at the pearly white gates.
He profoundly touched the lives of all he came in contact with and will be sorely missed.
Even though we cannot gather now to celebrate Todd Canady's life, rest assured we will. He would want that. Until that time, if you could, on Saturday evening, May 23, raise a glass and give a toast to him wherever you are.
In lieu of flowers, Todd's family suggests remembrances be made to Hemophilia of Georgia, Development Department, 8800 Roswell Road Suite 170, Atlanta, GA 30350; or www.hemophilia.eresources.ws/fundraising/donate.asp.

So sorry to hear about Todd. I am his second cousin Cynthia Stewart. His grandfather and my mother Maude Canady Scarboro were brother and sister. I can't remember if I ever met him before but my prayers and condolences go out to the family.

In loving memory of a classmate/friend. From classes in Myers Middle (Aerodynamics with Mr Clayton) to our Senior Year at SCJ he was very nice & friendly. He still had that friendly personality at our 20th reunion in 2003. Still shock over his passing and his many of his friends have shared recently. Prayers go out to his wife Alethia his girls and family.

Talked to Todd not 2 or 3 days prior to his passing. We were going to the range off 17 as soon as COVID19 died down. Way too young to pass and younger than I. So sorry Alethia and girls.

I only met Todd physically once at his home with my daughter, Rachel's best friend Taylor. In those few minutes of meet and greet, he made me feel welcome and part of the family. I also met him over the phone when Rachel and Taylor were in a car accident, when he answered Taylor's phone to talk to me before I talked to her to let me know she was ok, physically. I knew then, that Taylor was in good hands as her dad was an hour away and I was 4 hours away and couldn't get to her quickly. My condolences are with the family, all my prayers are for you to find Peace at this time in knowing that though he may not be with us in person, he is with us always in your hearts. Love you Rachel.

I am still in shock about Todd passing away. I always thought he was the sweetest little boy and he definitely turned out to be a super nice young man. I will forever remember him in my heart.

I will always remember Todd especially how kind he was..almost to a fault. He and Troy were like the sons I never had. If I needed anything Todd and Troy would be there with a smile asking do you need anything else.. if I said no thanks Ide get you sure? a couple times before they left. Our families were very close for almost 35 years through good times, sad times and bad times...life as it goes.

So long Todd

Dear Alethia and family - though I only met Todd at your wedding, he was a fine gentleman and clearly left us well before his rightful time. I am sad to hear of his sudden passing - as I know he raised a wonderful family and had dreams to continue living life to the fullest. May he Rest In Peace now and bring comfort in knowing that he no longer suffers.
