KARMAN – Gregory Todd

April 19, 1969 – August 25, 2010

It is with profound sadness that the family of Gregory “Todd” Karman announce his passing on Wednesday, August 25,2010 at the age of 41 years, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Todd was born and raised in Calgary, where he worked for the past twenty-eight years in his family road construction business. In 1998, Todd met his wife Kim and in 2001 they had their first son Ben. They married in 2004 and in 2005 had their second son Josh. Todd was a loving and devoted husband; his greatest accomplishments were his children to whom he was the most wonderful father. Throughout his life Todd had a great love of sports and was actively involved both as a player and a coach. This is where he met many of his dearest friends. Todd (“Big Reg” to his closest friends the “Lawners”) was always the event planner and loved hosting his annual Super Bowl party. Todd was an active member in the community and a beloved coach in the Blackfoot Hockey Association.

Todd will forever be remembered by his loving wife and best friend Kim, and their precious children, Ben and Josh; parents, George and Karen Karman; brother Gary; grandmothers, Virginia Jacobson and Margaret Karman; aunts, Susan and Margaret Karman, Susan (Herb) Schaller; uncle Lloyd Jacobson; and cousins, Cody, Michael, Johnny and Andy; as well as numerous extended family and dear friends. Todd was predeceased by his grandfathers, George Karman and Olaf Jacobson; and uncles, Bob Karman and Glen Jacobson. Todd will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

“To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die”
˜ Thomas Campbell.

    Hearing of Todds passing was very saddening for our family. Todd was someone that I looked up to. Immediatly alot of memories ran through my head and I remembered being called up to the Capitals as a 16yr old and Todd being one of the first guys in the room to offer words of encouragement and advice. I would like to think that being around guys like Todd and my hockey family have made me a better person today. Thanks for all the memories “TODD” you will never be forgotton. To Mr.and Mrs. Karman and Gary,our deepest condolences from the Hutchings family.
