In Memory of Todd Kauppila

It is with great sorrow and a profound sense of loss that I must convey the following information.
At 11:00 P.M. on 08 May, 2005 my dear friend and mentor Todd J. Kauppila passed away at the age of 41.

Todd is survived by his wife Sarah, son John, daughter Tia, his father and mother John and Marie, sister Diana, and brother David.

Because of the support that so many of you have shown for Todd and his family over the last ten months, you should know that your thoughts and prayers have helped to sustain them. In the coming trials that they will face I know your continued prayers and assistance will be a blessing to them.

Todd dedicated his life to his family, whom he loved dearly, and to his science on behalf of the nation. He rose to be a world renowned leader in his chosen field. He served with pride and distinction knowing that the data that he collected was critical to the security of the nation that he loved. To those that knew him he was also a loving husband, father, and a devoted friend whose loyalty was beyond question. It is those qualities that will cause us to miss him the most. Todd was also deeply involved with local charities and veterans groups. Today this community and this nation are much poorer because of his passing.

I hope you will join me in praying that the Lord Jesus Christ will look after his soul and will ease the pain of this tragic loss for his family and those of us who knew and loved him.

This is indeed grievous news. May God grant solace to Todd's family through the dark days ahead.
I wish I had words to express my feelings for Todd's family. My deepest sympathy goes out to them.
What sad news. Our best wishes to Todd's family; he is a true hero for bringing to the public eye the corruption that plagues LANL's management.
