Todd Edward McCarty

On June 3rd, we lost our beloved Todd E. McCarty to a courageous battle with cancer. He was a kind and gentle soul who found beauty in every sunset and humor in almost everything. He was an extremely hard worker who loved his family fiercely. Nearly as equally, he loved chilli with peanut butter sandwiches and strong iced tea. He was always up for a motorcycle ride, and enjoyed several roadtrips with his brothers. He was an expert in the fine art of swearing and a proclamator of all things that “put hair on your chest.” He never missed an opportunity to tell those he loved how much they meant to him. The pride he had for his family was unmatched. He will be missed by many.
Proceeded in death by: his parents Richard and Pauline McCarty, sister-in-law Sheila McCarty, his sweet and incredibly dumb greyhound Clown, and his ill-behaved yet loyal cockapoo Shadow.
Survived by: Wife; Kathi Young, Children; Jennifer (Ryan) Murphy, Crystal (Steve) McCarty-Peters, Amber (Cory) Chapman, Brandy Allen, and Jordan Freeman, Grandchildren; Michael (Brennah) Jones, Mack (Bobbi) Jones, Morgan Jones, Max Jones, Logan Peters, Ethan Northness, Finn Northness, Noah Chapman, Lily Chapman, Brandon Lisby, Joseph Johnson, Brianna Johnson, and Dejuan Johnson, Great granddaughter; Aria Jones, a great grandson on the way, Siblings; Larry (Linda), Mike, Rick (Carol), Kaye, Nelson (Linda), and many nieces and nephews.
