Martin David Tod ("Dave") from Napoleon, OH passed on 27 March 2022 in Lima, Ohio. He had a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and was a published author, excelling in short stories and poetry. He worked for KK Collision since 2002 as one of the top auto body restorers and auto painters in the surrounding area. He loved Mopar muscle cars, reading and writing, the 765 steam locomotive, and bluegrass. Dave leaves a 6 year old son behind; Martin David Tod Jr. was the absolute love of his life and his pride and joy. Dave is preceded in death by his maternal grandmother Hazel Tracey of Waveland Mississippi, paternal grandparents Don and Betty Tod of Fremont, OH, and brother in law Jay Wilkins of Payson, AZ. Dave is survived by parents Gordon & Peggy Tod of Fremont, OH, sisters Bethany Tod (Colan Supe) of Pendleton County, KY and Melanie Tod Wilkins of Payson, AZ, nephews Tod McCarthy and Tim (Ashley) McCarthy of Payson, AZ, great nephew Zander McCarthy of Payson, AZ and his son David Jr. Don Catchen & Son in Elsmere, KY is serving the family. At Dave's request, no services will be offered. Donations may be made to the American College of Gastroenterology Institute G.U.T. Fund. As Dave would often say to his sisters when they didn't know when or where they would meet again, "See you in Toledo!"
