Farewell, Todd

We have lost another friend and colleague at Leopold Ketel. Todd Cunlisk, our Vice President, and Development Director died June 15, 2018. He was 54.

Todd bravely battled a rare form of leukemia and beat it, only to succumb later to kidney failure, possibly a result of his leukemia treatment.

As stated in his obituary: “Todd was always quick with a laugh and a smile. His warm, friendly, supportive and welcoming personality made him beloved by his many friends, family, clients, co-workers and all those who were fortunate enough to know and love him. Todd enjoyed being active, loved traveling, golfing and fly-fishing on the Mecca Flats on the Deschutes, as well as spending time on the Metolius River and Camp Sherman. Todd also was an avid sports fan, cheering on the Notre Dame football team and Boston Red Sox. He was inspired to take up gardening after his mother-in-law, Olga Haley, passed in 2014, carrying on her green thumb legacy by creating a backyard oasis for his friends and family to enjoy, and to now remember and reflect upon his life well-lived. Todd, you will be missed and loved always, forever in our hearts.”

Here at the agency, we will remember Todd for his great sense of humor, an easy manner, and genuine warmth. He was a rock-solid leader and a reliable partner. We will miss him greatly.
