Todd Kern, 38, of El Dorado Hills, CA. passed away this morning. He was in a single-car accident. More than anything Todd loved his children Jackson & Ellie and their mom Jessica; as well as our parents Susan and Jim and my family... and we all loved him fiercely in return. Todd was hilarious. He told the best jokes and could do the funniest accents. He was very quick with a smile or a hug and always wanted to know what he could do to help. He lit up every room with his infectious optimism and enthusiasm. His greatest wish was to be a good family-man. He was a stellar athlete, especially soccer, and was always up for every adventure. He loved being outside, never one to sit still, and was happiest fishing, dirt-biking, surfing, snowboarding or anything else that put the wind in his hair. With his passing we ask for prayers for all who loved him, especially his children.
