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.
