August 7, 1950 - September 11, 2020
Todd Christopher Warren passed away on September 11, 2020, in Salt Lake City, Utah, at the age of 70. Todd was born August 7, 1950, in San Francisco, California, to parents Todd Joseph Warren and Betty Louise Warren. Todd grew up in San Francisco and Sacramento, graduating from Mira Loma High School in Sacramento in 1968. A year later, in 1969, Todd enlisted in the US Air Force, serving for nine years. After marrying and divorcing while in the service, Todd returned to Sacramento, to try and settle down. That proved to be challenging for Todd. He found that he was more comfortable traveling around California and the Southwest, finding work as needed, not content to settle down for any length of time. Todd returned home to Sacramento when he was needed by his family: when Mom was slowly losing her battle with the cancer that took her life and when Dad began his slide into the Alzheimer’s that ultimately led to his passing from pneumonia. After Dad’s passing, Todd moved to Salt Lake City early in 2004, and never left, hoping for a fresh start in a city and a state filled with so many opportunities. It’s where he finally retired, and where he lost his years-long battle with the metatstatic prostate cancer that took his life. Todd’s one life-long passion and interest was in the game of chess: he competed in many tournaments and had an encyclopedic knowledge of many of the classic chess matches throughout history. Todd was preceded in death by both parents and is survived by his brother, Wayne (Marsha) and his family, in Rhode Island, his Aunt Barbara Pierce and her son, cousin Jeff, and his family, in Oregon, his cousin Susan and her family in Southern California, and his cousin Jim Bolton and family, in Pacifica, California. At the request of the family, their will no viewings or memorial services, but a Flag Service will be conducted for Todd, at the Utah Veteran’s Cemetery in Bluffdale, Utah, on Monday, September 21, 2020 at 11:00 AM. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation and thanks to the staff (physicians, nurses and social workers) at the University of Utah Hospital and the Huntsman Cancer Institute, who were so caring and supportive of Todd and his family in his last few weeks. We’d also like to extend our sincere thanks to the staff of the Serenity Funeral Home, who’ve been so understanding and helpful in making arrangements for Todd to be buried at the Veteran’s Cemetery.
