Tod “Todder” J. Maclay, age 61, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at his home on Big Cedar Lake in West Bend. He was born on July 25, 1958 in Milwaukee, WI to Geoffrey and Edith (nee VonSchleinitz) Maclay.

Tod is survived by his loving wife, Patty (nee Liban); his parents; brother Rip (Karen); sisters, Chrissie (Gil) Lindeman, Shelly (Paul) Zucchi and his special brother-in-law Jim Liban. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, other relatives, friends and all of his beloved pets, especially his dog, Chi.

Tod was a loving husband, son, brother, uncle, brother-in-law and friend. Tod especially enjoyed spending time with his many nephews, nieces, great-nephews and great-nieces who enjoyed all kinds of fun activities and excursions with their “Uncle Tod”. None of them could imagine a better uncle. He was always happy and positive about life. He was thoughtful and generous to a fault. Everyone who knew him said that they were enriched by his presence and his soul. His enthusiasm for life was infectious and unequaled. He will be incredibly missed by everyone he touched.

He was a leader in the community. Tod was involved with the Cedar Lakes Conservation Foundation, Big Cedar Lake Property Owners Association and the Town of West Bend Planning Commission. He was a graduate of the University School of Milwaukee and a graduate of Dartmouth College.

Memorials are appreciated to Cedar Lakes Conservation Foundation (P.O. Box 347, West Bend, WI 53095).

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.

I am so sorry to learn of Tod's passing. I also count myself lucky to have worked with him and witness his talent in bringing people together around common goals. I will always value all I learned from Tod about life, conservation and achieving one's dreams.

News of Tod’s passing has left his childhood friends and I reeling. His caustic and mischievous sense of humor set him apart from the rest of the posse. I delighted in his company right through my departure from Milwaukee 34 years ago. Tod’s hosting of Winter Carnival at Dartmouth will remain emblazoned as one of my most vivid & indelibly hilarious recollections. I cherished his presence when I was lucky enough to be within its proximity. RIP Todder. Rick Norris

Tod and I started our life together as classmates...From nursery school, all the way through, together, as seniors in high school. Tod was always, and I mean ALWAYS, kind, generous, with a ready smile. My deepest condolences to his wife and family members. Sending love and healing thoughts. Hilary Lewis USM '77

My heartfelt sympathy to Tod’s family and community.

It’s hard to imagine anyone more humble, loyal, cheerful, and hard-working than was Tod. When I did considerable work for the Cedar Lakes Conservation Foundation for over 10 years, my frequent interactions with Tod were always a joy and entertaining for his quick wit and dry humor. He was always there for any heavy lifting, and always did it with a smile. I can’t remember a single occasion when he didn’t greet me with a smile, a Joke, a chuckle, and a “yes, I can help you with that.”

I can still see his signature smile and dimples, and am certain I’m not alone. May God rest his soul.

While we had lost touch with Tod as he returned to his beloved home and family, please hear our prayers for y'all as we share your loss. Tod's appetite for laughs was unmatched, and cheerful could have been his middle name. He was a rock on our fraternity hockey team and his memorable cross country relay effort helped us win the fraternity championship. We all at Dartmouth and Bones Gate will remember Tod with a smile on our face. William H "Luell T Bags" Mitchell '79
