As a young boy, his family moved to Boulder, Colorado, where Todd attended local schools. He also attended Lowell Whiteman Global Boarding School in Steamboat Springs. This school gave him the opportunity to attend classes in Mexico, which he considered the happiest time in his youth.
Todd’s youthful interests in cars and motorcycles changed as he grew older to house construction, which led to him building his own homes, and entrepreneurial pursuits, including businesses in pre-stressed concrete, geological core sampling and carpet cleaning. Prior to retirement Todd worked as a utility locator. He made many wonderful friends during these years.
His love of animals and nature led Todd to his most treasured period of life. For almost 20 amazing years he was a rancher with his wife, Donna, raising Australian Shepherds and Akbash dogs, cats, alpacas, ducks and geese, pygmy goats and fish at their beautiful home in Erie.
Todd was a mountain of a man who lived life on his own terms. He was a dreamer, a nature lover, a white-water rafter who could spin a good tale. One of his greatest passions throughout his life was music, of any variety. He was loved by many, and will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Todd is survived by his children LeAnn Faulkner, Johnna (Chris Argo) Faulkner, Tara (John) Murphy, and Robin (Eugene) Curletti; grandchildren Makenzie Bryk, Mariah (David Sturgeon) Faulkner, Jorma Kucsmas, Landon Curletti, Alesia Curletti and Hazel Curletti; great-grandchild Kai Sturgeon; siblings Marc (Sherry) Faulkner, Kimball (Les) Beery, and Tamara (Paul Clayman) Faulkner, former wives Carla Hoffman, Erna (Larry) Lampman, life partner Donna Helberg and many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his beloved mother Patricia Faulkner, his grandson Brandon Bryk and his father Dean Faulkner.
A private family celebration will be held in May 2019.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in his name to The Longmont Humane Society, 9595 Nelson Road, Longmont, CO 80501.
