Todd Mark Tafoya, 38 of Salt Lake City, left us on July 25, 2001.
He was born Dec. 6, 1962 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Rudy and Josephine Blair Tafoya. Todd knew and was loved by many people. He lived life to the fullest. He was great with kids, all kids. Kids loved him as much as he loved them. We'll always remember that great smile. Todd's life was taken while saving another. That's what he was all about.
He is survived by his parents; brother, Tony (Lisa) Tafoya; sister, Kim (Jean Luc) Bisi; sons, Todd, Jr., Tyler, and Cassidy; daughter, Janae; grandmother, Mary Blair; nephews, Derek, Adam, Chaz, Andy, and Axel. Numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. And best friend, Rick (Lisa) Nepolis.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Alfredo and Esther Gomez and Patricio Blair.
A vigil service will be held Monday at 7 p.m. at Neil O'Donnell and Sons, 372 East 100 South, where friends may call from 6-7 p.m. Bring a story to share with us. Committal: Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery, 4th Avenue and T Street.
Happy fishing our son and brother. We love and miss you very much.
