Todd Walter Elkington
Nov. 7, 1966 – July 28, 2021
Todd Walter Elkington was born on Nov. 7, 1966 to William Brice Elkington and Shauna Steadman. He moved around a lot as a child but finished high school in Grantsville, Utah. He later went to Southern Utah University and UAA. Shortly after moving back to Utah, Todd met and married his wife Holli Wood. Craving more adventures and a call from the wild, in 1995, he brought his wife and beloved dogs back to Alaska, finally settling in Homer. He worked many years for Safeway and recently went back to work for SPH as the Long Term Care biller.
Todd’s real passion was his family. Todd has four beautiful children: two amazing and loving sons, Sage and Keegan, as well as two strong and articulate daughters, Madi and Lili. An Eagle Scout, Todd spent every moment he could taking his kids camping and on adventures. He was also true nerd at heart; he loved gaming with his kids and friends. His goal was to be an fantastic father, and he far exceeded his quest. The kids loved never having to ask Google anything because Dad would always know the answer. He was a brilliant man with a dry sense of humor that made everyone laugh and want to be around him. He was truly a wonderful husband, incredible father, loving son, beloved brother and great friend to many.
He is survived in death by his talented mother, Shauna Steadman, his gifted siblings, Troy Elkington, Heidi McAffee and Trevor Elkington. The sparkle in his eyes, his children, Kenneth Sage, 22, MadiLynne Sloane, 19, Keegan Charles, 15, and LiliHanna Layne, 13. Married on the first anniversary of their first date, Todd was a loving and caring husband to Holli for almost 31 years. Todd will be missed every moment of every day. This world was a better place with him in it.
