Toddman

Toddman Passed Away on 2/10/13

It is with great sadness that we tell you that Todd "Toddman" Anderson passed Sunday afternoon ( 2/10/13).

Toddman was the webmaster for WSI from 2005 through 2013 as well as an active member at WSI events. His interest in WSI and heart felt support for the organization was evident in his Web work and his attendance to events when ever it was possible. He and Ann loved attending the WSI Thunder vs Plunder Hockey Fund Raiser. Even supporting WSI through the purchase of Players Jerseys at the fund raiser auction. Ann would take pictures and Todd would dress up the website with results and post the pictures. Sadly Toddman missed this years fundraiser. We missed him. We will continue to miss him.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Toddman's family during this time of sorrow. R.I.P.
