Thomas R. Todd was born to Grace Todd and Jimmy Ray Everidge in Santa Monica, California on September 16, 1955. As the firstborn, he helped his mother raised five siblings and cared for her up until the final days of his life.

Thomas met the love of his life, Lorna Gadon, at the California Hospital Medical Center, Dietary Department in Los Angeles where they both worked. Thomas as a supervisor and Lorna as a dietary technician. They officially married on October 3, 1999. A year later, they welcomed their baby daughter, Dana.

Thomas and Lorna received the Holy Marriage Blessing, on January 17, 2013

Thomas was a wonderful family-oriented man, a dedicated worker, and a community-oriented man. He deeply loved his mother and siblings. He adored his wife and his daughter Dana. He also enjoyed working with others and serving them.  He called Trader Joe’s where he joined in 2007 after moving to Las Vegas, his second home and family. At Trader Joe’s he gave his best to make both colleagues and patrons happy.

Two years ago, Thomas was diagnosed with irreversible COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Since January he had been in and out of the emergency room fighting for his life he as hard as he could. His condition took a turn for the worst on May 13, 2020. Nine days later on May 22, 2020, he peacefully ascended surrounded by his wife Lorna, his daughter Dana and Mikko, their precious dog.

Thomas will be laid to rest in Santa Monica, California on September 16, 2020 which would have been his 65th birthday.

Thomas is survived by his wife, Lorna Gadon Todd, his daughter Dana, his mother Grace Addy, his siblings; Jerry and Stephanie Moore, Patricia and Lee Harris, Sherlene Green, Jason, and Kim Addy and numerous nieces and nephews.

    Dear Lorna and Dana, may you have a beautiful time of transition for Tom, surrounded by God’s very deep love for your family. He will be missed by all who counted on him every day. But he isn’t going far, for sure he will be with you soon again supporting Heavenly Parent’s work in Las Vegas and America. Much love to you both, Pam Stein
