Todd was born September 21, 1973, in Chariton, Iowa to Gary and Rita Rodgers. Todd graduated from Russell High School (Russell, IA) in 1992.
In 1994, Todd married Amy Ripperger of Chariton, to which they were blessed with three children: Awsten, Tyarra & Alexus. They were divorced in 2009; Todd never remarried.
Todd was very good at working with his hands; held several different jobs over the years and owned his own tire shop business at one time. He had a real passion for cars and trucks, and truly enjoyed tinkering with engines. His passion was evident in the numerous vehicles he owned and “worked on” over the years. Todd also served with great pride as a volunteer firefighter in the Russell community for many years.
Todd is survived by his parents, Gary & Rita Rodgers of Humeston, IA; his children: son Awsten (Kelsey) of Pleasantville, IA; daughter Tyarra (Tanner Smothers) of Pleasantville, IA; daughter Alexus of Carlisle, IA; his siblings: Chad (Kathleen) Rodgers of Quincy, IL; Jake Rodgers of Humeston, IA; Amanda Rodgers of Humeston, IA; and half-brother Wayne Conway (Rodgers) of Melrose, IA; his beautiful grandchildren - Sophia, Lilly, Chloe, Gracie, Ava & Sutton; and many nieces, nephews and other relatives.
Arrangements are being handled by Pierschbacher Funeral Home of Chariton, IA.
