Obituary

Robert Nicholas Todd, 74, of Quincy passed away at his home peacefully in his sleep surrounded by his family on October 6, 2020 after a courageous 14-year battle with cancer.

Nick was born to Robert and Arlene (Wright) Todd in Mt. Ida, AR on October 9, 1945. As a young boy, he moved with his family to Gridley, CA in the heart of the Sacramento Valley. He graduated from Gridley High with the Class of 1963 and joined the National Guard in 1965 serving thru 1971.

Nick met the love of his life, Judy, at the Gridley theater during a screening of the film Blue Hawaii starring Elvis Presley. They wed in 1968 and she shared in the sickness and health and richer or poorer of life with him for over 52 years. With his last breath, he reminded her of how beautiful she was to him.

Nick’s immediate family is grateful for the physically demanding work he tirelessly performed to provide for them. He was a man who led by example. He worked for Chevron USA in Richmond, CA from 1969 thru August of 1979 when he moved his young family to Quincy. He worked from 1979 thru 2000 for Witco (Celite) but his true passion was farming. He was active in the farming community, producing hay and cattle. After retiring his own fields, he continued to do what he loved in the fields of local farmers baling hay and hauling onions. Nick was a man committed to his friends.

Nick was an avid outdoorsman, a voracious reader, passionate pinnacle player, accomplished gardener and skilled marksman. He was active in the Quincy Gun Club for over 20 years competing successfully at the state level. He was especially proud of the parent child division title he won with son James in 1988. His treasured memories of the many hunting and fishing trips he enjoyed with friends and James carried him through his last days.

Nick was a staunch believer in community service and had a heart for giving back and helping others. He served on the Quincy Planning Commission, as treasurer at the Quincy Senior Center and as a board member.

Nick is survived by an adoring wife, Judy, and three children. Robert Gerald (Alan Feiner), Melissa Nicol (Greg Sonne), and James (Kelly) Todd. He leaves behind six grandchildren. Skyler, Summer, Scotland, and Shelby Tate and Samantha and Nicholas Todd, sister Tanya (Larry) Molitor, brother Jere (Norma) Todd, and friend Cliff Robertson as well as a remarkable, loving group of nephews, nieces, cousins and numerous friends that will remember him fondly forever. He will be deeply missed by his cats Tigger, Mikey, and Peanut.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his granddaughter, Sunday Tate.

Nick had a warrior spirit throughout his life. In the end God, in His great mercy and grace, took Nick at the exact moment that was planned from the beginning of time and he will spend eternity restored.
Cremation arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Scharbach’s Columbia Funeral Chapel. Interment at a later date in Gridley-Biggs Cemetery.

Our heartfelt and deepest sympathy to you JUDY and children, in the passing of a great guy, a gentleman, our true friend, Nick. We will miss him very much. Smiling all the time no matter what. We had allot of laughs and sure enjoyed all the different melons he brought to share at work. He brought snacks for our little great granddaughters, and they looked for him and new who Nick was. All the truck drivers will miss him as well, we will miss him even more when we’re driving. He will not be forgotten. If there is anything you need, please call us, as Nick would do for us. God bless you and yours through this difficult time and everyday forward. May you find comfort and peace in your faith and the love The Lord has for you.
With love, 💐
