Todd Rae Freitag, age 43, passed away at his home surrounded by love on Tuesday, December 11, 2018.  He fought a tremendously brave battle against pancreatic cancer until the heartbreaking end.

 

Todd blessed this earth July 8, 1975 in Ontario Oregon to Edward and Nancy Freitag and  moved to Bandon in 1979. Todd is survived by his high school sweetheart Courtney, whom he married in 1997, their two children, Kyle and Raelyn, his parents, and five siblings: Brian (wife Stephanie), Kirk (wife Shawna), Julie (husband Joe), Mindy, Aaron (wife Chelsea), and many nieces and nephews.

 

Todd was a respected Journeyman Lineman for the City of Bandon for 18 years and developed lifelong, irreplaceable friendships. He had an undeniable love for the outdoors and lived and breathed fishing and hunting every chance he was able to squeeze out.  He started his own business, Grassy Knob Guide and Outfitters, which became widely successful due to his perseverance. Failure was not part of Todd’s vocabulary.

 

Family is what mattered most to Todd and he was diligent about keeping a tight bond with loved ones. He was an amazing husband and father who wholeheartedly immersed himself into every aspect of our lives. Todd’s motto:  Life is for Living! The heartbreak of losing him will last forever…

 

In Loving Honor of Todd, a Celebration of Life will be held December 29, 2018, at Bandon Christian Fellowship @ 11:00am.  Reception to follow at the City Barn (Community Center.)

One of the best days of my life was spent with Todd in a driftboat on an overcast and rainy day as we sought steelhead on the upper Coquille River. Todd, Tyler and I were in one boat, my father, brother, and Jeff Miller in the other. It was a few days before Tyler left for Basic Training with the Navy. We saw beautiful country, got rained on plenty, and caught some great steelhead! I remember Todd laughing at Miller's lack of patience as we hit holes along the river. If Miller didn't hook up immediately he raced on, but Todd would find some great holes and ripples and we'd take it slow and were really successful :) At one point Tyler cast his line into a tree and Todd was helping untangle it when I hooked up a fish in the ripple. Fun chaos as somehow he untangled the line, got the boat repositioned and we landed the fish. We all caught great fish (more for Todd's boat for the record), had great conversation, and got to connect that day in a way that we may not have otherwise. Just another day for Todd, but for me it has always been one of the highlights.

Love and prayers to the Freitags - Carl Moehring and Family

Dear Courtney and family,
I know that there is now a new and brightly shining star in our heavens. Todd was so very loving and possessed a quiet strength that most of us do not know. I feel very honored to have known Todd and it certainly was my pleasure to have participated, in a small way, in his cancer journey. Courtney, you are an amazing person! You also have great strength which, I pray, will carry you through your grief. You are so loved by so many. I will never forget Todd or the very obvious love that the two of you share.
