June 19, 1964 – May 4, 2013
Born in Grand Coulee, Wash., Todd A. Wilson moved to Spokane Valley at an early age. His primary education was in Millwood followed by graduation from East Valley High School, class of 1982. Todd joined the Navy and was stationed briefly in Hawaii where he excelled in the field of technology.
As a youth, he loved all things outdoors, especially dirt biking with his brother and dad. He was independent, with a mischievous streak and a sweet, shy smile. Later in life, he enjoyed camping, fishing and, staying true to his Coulee roots, rock collecting. He worked as a roofer for many years in the Spokane and Idaho areas. He enjoyed watching sports, playing pool and was an avid golfer.
Todd is survived by his partner of 23 years, Georgia Kappus, Spokane Valley, Wash.; brother, Chad (Anna), nephews: Tanner and Hunter Wilson, Hayden, Idaho; mother Barbara Thurston Peter and her husband David A. Peter, Grand Coulee; father Rob Wilson, Rathdrum, Idaho, and his extended Thurston family, who are all saddened by his early death.
A graveside service is planned for Saturday, May 25, 11 a.m., at Spring Canyon Cemetery, with a luncheon immediately following at the Methodist Church.
