The sudden loss of Todd, who died during his sleep in May, was a shock to all of us who knew him.
Todd grew up in Charlotte but we got to know him best when he and our son Kevin met at UNC-Chapel Hill. Kevin regarded him as a friend and in many ways a brother.
His wit and skill with our website, and his fountain of ideas was so valuable.
He was such a gifted person, as a thinker, and writer. He served the Lord in ministry, starting two churches here in Charlotte. He also worked for some time as a consultant in TAG, Kevin’s consulting group.
I was privileged to know him, mentor him a bit, follow him with interest across the years. He was aware of the personal challenges he faced, and struggled with across the years. But his bright mind, smile, warmth will always stay with me. I am thankful to have known him, miss him along with his devoted family and friends, and look forward to our reunion with the Lord.
This is one of the best books of those Todd authored. There are many books on leadership, but not many on followership. This is well worth reading.
His interview in the with Irv Chambers, my own long-time associate and friend, provides a superb model of a true follower of the Lord and servant of others. I miss them both. That chapter is available to read here.
