Write a Tribute

Todd Henderson was born on September 22, 1962, in Chatham, Ontario to his Father Andrew Allan Henderson and Mother Betty Joyce Clark. Todd grew up in the small town of Glencoe, Ontario with his three sisters Heather, Joy, and Brenda along with his only brother Kevin. Growing up Todd largely enjoyed being outside and being active by playing sports with his two favourites being Ice Hockey and Baseball. At the age of twenty-five Todd married his wife Veronica Wakem whom he loved deeply for thirty-five years. They eventually had two children, their first was his daughter Natasha and their second was his son Andrew. Todd cared profoundly for both his children and would go to any length to ensure his families happiness. Todd took great pride in teaching them valuable skills and life lessons that he gained during his life. He wanted his children to be able to conquer all of life’s challenges on their own and taught them to be independent, strong, reliable, persevering, and optimistic which were characteristics that many saw in him.

Outside of his family, Todd was extremely passionate about his career being a Power Line Technician for Ontario Hydro, Vaughan Hydro, and B.C. Hydro. Never once did Todd wake up and resent the day ahead, he loved his job and took his profession seriously. Over his career he had a large impact by teaching incoming Journeymen and Apprentices and passed on any knowledge he held. Near the end of his career Todd was determined to become a manager for B.C. Hydro which he accomplished months before he passed. He leaves behind a band of brothers who embraced him and cared for him deeply.

Apart from his family and career, Todd’s pride and joy was his lawn and overall household aesthetic. Todd would work diligently and meticulously on his lawn and garden ensuring that it met his standards. His family will always remember how much time he would spend caring for his grass and plants as he would only allow himself to maintain them and would give rigid instructions when allowing his family to help. It was this commitment to detail that allowed his personality to shine and allowed everyone to see the man he was. Someone who took pride in their work, enjoyed the process, took his time to do things right, and could create something beautiful for everyone to enjoy.

Todd will be dearly missed by his wife, children, sisters, and brother. He has left behind a legacy that they will never forget.

Those we love don’t go away; they walk beside us every day

Till we meet again

Aunt Veronica/Natasha/Andrew,

My condolences on Uncle Todd's passing. I look back fondly with a smile on my face to the many great times had with him. From visiting Maple Ridge and St.Thomas, to the chaos of Henderson family christmas! He will be greatly missed, but I raise a glass to the many great memories that he has left us all to cherish.

Veronica, Natasha and Andrew. As an older cousin of Todd's, my memories are of him as a young boy on the farm, with a look and personality all his own. Our deepest sympathies to you on the loss of a wonderful person.

Although it’s been years since I have seen Todd and you in person I would like to remember the good times that we had working together at Vaughan Hydro . So I have attached a few pictures from the 1995 Christmas party . Todd AKA Harry from Harry & the Henderson’s was a all around great guy at work and out of work . Many good memories of his hysterical laugh and sense of humour. You may be gone but will never be forgotten till we meet again.

We trust that you can find peace knowing that Todd brought joy and laughter to so many people, even now my memories of him make me laugh out loud, wrestling all kids at once while still having the upper hand with his sock tying technique, lol, and those summer pool parties in Vaughan will always be some of my fondest memories, with Todd playfully chasing us around and tossing us in the pool, always a wild fun time. We will miss him every day but every day he will make us smile. Take care of each other and cherish the memories.
Love, Wesley & Cassandra

Aunt Veronica, Natasha and Andrew.

One of my fondest childhood memories is how Uncle Todd set the Christmas mayhem bar high in Glencoe when I was a kid, with socks in a knot WWF style! I copied his lead and have passed this fun onto my kids, nieces and nephews. He was one of a kind and will be missed dearly. From my family to yours, condolences.

Our condolences to the Henderson family. Todd will be missed and remembered as a kind, proud man and father. I knew how much he loved Natasha and Andrew’s and was very proud of their achievements. I still remember my very first day at BC Hydro as a pre-apprentice, I worked a 16 hour shift with Todd in Vancouver, we had dinner at an Italian restaurant in Burnaby, we had good chats about our kids and minor hockey. Although he was a Toronto Leafs fan, we shared our passion for hockey! Veronica, Natasha, and Andrew we are very sorry for your loss.
