Todd Mescher – Obituary

Todd was the salt of the earth kind of man who loved his family and friends. He was a sports fanatic and win or lose, he enjoyed watching games played by his much-loved Chicago Cubs and his alma mater, Clemson University Tigers. As an adult, he enjoyed playing league basketball, softball and golf.  He was a huge fan of 80’s music and pop culture.  He loved animals and had many special pets over his lifetime – Buckshot, Buddy, Chloe, Maeda, Sasha and Alex.

Todd is survived by his wife of 15 years, Alison Anderson Mescher, Wake Forest, NC; sister, Allyson Mescher, Aurora, CO; brother, Kurt (Alma) Mescher, Houston, TX; sisters-in-law, Danielle (Ryan) Lynch, Raleigh, NC, Cheryl Anderson, Wake Forest, NC; nieces and nephews, Ryan and Rachael Ballard, Rebecca (Mike) Buckman, Aurora, CO, Kyle Mescher, Houston, TX, Gabrielle and Aiden Lynch, Raleigh, NC;  uncle, Dave (Donna) Chelini, Channahon, IL; aunts, Laurie (Steve) Kulish, Wilmington, IL, Carol Allison, Joliet, IL; cousins, Jeff Chelini, Joliet IL, Angie Chelini Mabry, Minooka, IL, Stephanie and Jason Kulish, Wilmington, IL.
