Todd Love Obituary

Todd Harrison Love, a man whose kindness and friendship touched the hearts of many, peacefully embarked on his final journey on Sunday, March 31, 2024. Born on April 27, 1965, in Omaha, Nebraska, Todd's life was a testament to the joy and beauty that a simple life, deeply rooted in family and nature, can bring. He passed away in Laguna Hills, California following a valiant battle with lymphoma, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories.

Todd grew up in Mission Viejo, California. After high school he worked at various jobs, but gardening and keeping the back yard and his putting green pristine were his real passions. His green thumb was not just a skill but a reflection of his soul's connection to the earth.

He was a beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend, survived by his mother, Sandi (Alyce) Pelissier, his sisters Mindy and Lisa Love, stepbrothers Ed and Greg Pelissier, nieces Alyson (husband Frank Cardona) and Emily (husband Jason Mateo), his great-nieces Ellorie Cardona and Margaret Mateo, his uncle Dick and aunt Liz Sanderman (cousins Sara and Kimmy), and aunt, Nancy Pelissier. Todd's family was the center of his world, and he cherished every moment spent with them. His nieces and great-nieces, who affectionately referred to him as Uncle Todda, brought so much joy to his life. He shared with them his love for Disneyland, the family farm in Nebraska and the beauty of Yosemite National Park, creating memories that would last them a lifetime.

Todd's barbecuing skills were legendary among those who knew him. His love for being outside, whether it was tending to his yard, grilling a perfectly cooked tri-tip, or simply soaking up the sunshine, was matched only by his love for his family. He loved to golf, and Todd's passion for sports extended to his loyal support for the Dodgers, the Dallas Cowboys and Formula One racing.

Todd loved music, movies, and television. His favorite band was Rush but Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and even Dwight Yoakam were part of his diverse repertoire. He loved The Godfather, the Lord of the Rings series, Goodfellas, Forrest Gump and so many other classic movies. Seinfeld, That 70’s Show and the British version of Antiques Roadshow were always playing on his TV.

Todd was also known for his humorous spirit. Always quick with a witty comeback or a quote from his favorite movie or television show, his sense of humor brought laughter and light-heartedness to those around him. He was a great son, brother and uncle, whose love and care for his family was so important to him.

In remembering Todd, we recall a man whose loyalty, kindness, and humor were the cornerstones of his existence, making him a beacon of light for all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He was the kind of man who knew that the richness of life was in the connections we make and the joy we derive from simple pleasures. His laughter was infectious, his heart generous, and his spirit free.

Let us celebrate Todd Harrison Love's life not with sorrow but with the joy he would have wanted. Let us carry forward the laughter, the kindness, and the love he shared so freely. And in doing so, let us remember that, as Todd showed us, a life well-lived is one filled with laughter, love for one's family, and a deep appreciation for the natural world.

Todd's journey through life, although much too short, was a beautiful reminder that happiness is found in the love we share and the simple moments we cherish. He was a man who lived by the principle that the best things in life aren't things at all, but the relationships we nurture and the experiences we savor. May his memory continue to inspire us to live with the same openness, warmth, and joy that he brought into this world. Todd Harrison Love, a life beautifully lived, a heart profoundly loved, and a legacy that will forever bloom in the gardens of our hearts.
