and grew up in New Castle,
PA, where he graduated from
Neshannock High School in
1987. During his college
breaks, Todd worked at Philip
Weiner and Company in New
Castle with his father, Robert.

laude from Pennsylvania State
University in 1991 and passed
the C.P.A. exam with the
highest score in the state. In
1994, he graduated summa
cum laude from the University
of Pennsylvania Law School.
Within a few weeks of
entering Penn Law, Todd met
fellow law student Margaret

The night he met Margaret he
told his roommate, "I'm going
to marry that girl." They
married in Chicago in 1996
and moved to Washington,
D.C. Todd and Margaret were
blessed with the birth of
Katherine Elizabeth in 1999
and Jonathan Alexander in
2002. Todd clerked for Chief

Washington, D.C. to practice
tax law. He earned a Master's
in Taxation from Georgetown
University in 2000. Todd and
Margaret then moved to
Pittsburgh in 2000 where he
began practicing International
Tax with Deloitte. He became
an equity partner in 2003 and
continued to service large
multinational corporations
until his passing. Todd's
Catholic faith and strong
family ties were the bedrock
foundation of his life. He was
an alter server at St. Camillus
Parish, New Castle and a
lector at St. Bernard Parish,
Mt. Lebanon. He cherished
attending church with his
family and spending precious
time with his wife and
children. Todd loved golf,
Pittsburgh sports, and running.
An accomplished clarinetist,
he was ?rst-chair clarinet in
college and played in the Red

daughter, Katherine. Todd was
a trustee with the Pittsburgh
Symphony and belonged to
the Pittsburgh Tax Club and
the Allegheny Tax Society, as
well as Laurel Valley Golf Club,
St. Clair Country Club, and the

social person, he could light
up the room at any gathering.
