Todd was born July 25, 1976 in Owosso, the son of Gary and Diana (Shilling) Swartz.

Todd was affectionately called Doodle. That’s how everyone knew him. He loved to listen to and discover music. He was in a punk band for several years. He loved to write, paint and sketch. He loved golf (where he once got a hole in one!). He played on the JV golf team in High School. He graduated from Owosso High School in 1994. Doodle loved watching U of M and Lions Football and Detroit Tigers Baseball. He adored his house plants. He enjoyed taking care of his parents and making sure they still got to do the things they enjoyed.
