Todd Allan Anderson was born on May 18, 1982 in Verdugo Hills, California. He grew up in Southern California until the age of eight, when his family relocated to Saratoga and their current home.
An accomplished student, Todd was well-loved for his intelligence, humor, and insight. He was an eagle scout, an all-star little leaguer, and a varsity football and basketball player who graduated from Saratoga High School in 2000. Todd, with his affinity for helping others, did social work before receiving his bachelor’s degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Arizona. He then attended UC Irvine School of Medicine until his failing health made that impossible.
Todd died on July 29, 2018 and is survived by his father (Dave Anderson), mother (Sue Anderson), brother and sister-in-law (Matt and Heather Anderson), sister and brother-in-law (Karin and Bob Valdez), and his brother (Ryan). He also leaves behind two grandparents, five nieces and nephews, and an extended family that loves him dearly and will miss him every single day. Funeral services will be held Thursday morning, August 2nd at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 19100 Allendale Ave. in Saratoga. The viewing is set for 10:00 AM, with the services following at 11:00 AM. Todd will be buried at Madronia Cemetery in Saratoga.
