James L. Todd

Born on October 15, 1964 in Marinette County, WI, Jim passed away unexpectedly on December 6, 2020 at Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, WI. He is survived by his loving wife, Victoria (nee Van Ryzin) his dear children Zackary, Crystal and Jared and his fond parents, Ilene (nee Charlson) and Carl Hosterman.

He is further survived by other relatives and many friends.

Jim’s greatest joy was watching all three of his kids play hockey. For 23 years he was a part of the Ozaukee Ice Dogs and worked the bench for many of those years. If he wasn’t at the rink, he would be watching hockey on TV when not watching the Packers. He also coached little league, was a boy scout leader, bowled his entire life and was proud of his 300 game, golfed with his buddies, and he had a love of the outdoors that included camping with friends and old classmates, hiking, rafting and playing games. Known for his ability to fix anything, Jim was great at jerry rigging things when parts were not available, and he loved to tackle any home remodeling project. Jim’s was a hard worker, beginning at EST Company, then Waste Management, followed by Spiro and lastly Miller Bakery. He will truly be missed by many.
