Obits

Mark Allan Todd, 59 of Stonington, died at 9:51 a.m. Wednesday, February 17, 2021 in his home surrounded by his loving family. Mark was born on February 3, 1962 in Abilene, Texas, to Norman and Sheila (Trelz) Todd. He graduated from Hillsboro High School. He married Audrey Pugsley on October 16, 1993 in Pana, and they shared over 27 years together. Mark worked in construction for 30 years, mostly for Kelly Construction, a job which he genuinely enjoyed. Mark always had a project going and enjoyed carpentry and doing things around the house. Mark was a devoted father and he loved playing outside with his kids, whether tossing a ball, playing soccer, fishing, or camping. He was a dedicated Cubs and Cowboys fan. Mark absolutely adored his German Shepherds, Nieko and Bailey, and there is no doubt they loved him just as much. He had a deep love for his family, and he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. He will truly be missed by all who knew him. 

Along with his wife, Audrey Todd, Mark is survived by their children: Tabitha (Chae) Mills-Pugsley of Heyworth; Jason Todd of Litchfield, Justin (Mercedes Bryson) Todd of Bloomington; sister: Robin Hayes; brothers: William (Patricia) Oakley and Daniel Oakley, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father: Norman Todd, his mother: Sheila Oakley, and his stepfather: Russell Oakley, who raised him.
