David W. Todorovich, age 60, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, October 25, 2018, after a 10 year battle with cancer.
Survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Sharon (Fosnaugh); Son, Brad (Robin) of Mishawaka, IN and two adored grandsons, Daniel and Michael. Brothers, Bob (Joan) of Lakeville, MN and Jeff (Gelana) of Allen, TX. In-laws, Carl (Bernie) Fosnaugh of New Lenox and brother and sister-in-law Chris (Diane) Fosnaugh of Lockport.

Dave was born and raised in Joliet, graduating from Joliet West High School and Northern Illinois University. He was retired from Dr. Pepper/Snapple where he worked for 39 years. He was also an organist for several area churches, serving at St. Patrick’s in Joliet for 17 years. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus Father Dick Allen Council #10926 in New Lenox. Dave was a quiet man who truly loved spending time with his family and friends. He loved being out on the lake with a line in the water or playing with his ever faithful companion, Jack. Dave was, simply, a nice guy. He never once complained despite all he endured during his long fight, but was always concerned first about his wife and family. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Memorial contributions in his name may be made to Joliet Area Community Hospice.
