Norfolk- Curtis M. Todd, 77, passed away on August 12 after a long and courageous battle with leukemia. He was surrounded by his family as he passed quietly at home. He was preceded in death by his father Curtis M. Todd, Sr. and his mother Natalie E. Todd. He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years Sheila L. Todd, his sister Anne Matheson and her husband Wayne Matheson, daughter Shannon Wanderer and son-in-law Frank Wanderer, and his granddaughter Samantha Wanderer.

Curtis became a police officer at age 22 and worked toward receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Governmental Administration from Christopher Newport College in 1981. He played an integral role in the Norfolk Police department training academy and was later promoted to Assistant Chief of Police before retiring from the department. He then pursued one of his passions by working for Harley Davidson repairing motorcycles before officially retiring.

Curtis loved nature and enjoyed traveling with Sheila and his friends to the Blue Ridge mountains. He adored his granddaughter and supported her by attending all her academic achievements and sporting events. He was the honorary team photographer for Grafton High School’s track team. All who knew him will miss him so much.
