On Friday May 28, 2021 Our Father in Heaven called his son Todd Henry Boots home. Todd, 59, of Ellwood City died at the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital after collapsing at work on Monday.
Born March 24, 1962 in Ellwood City, he was the son of Harry L. and the late Ruth Ann McKeough Boots who died on April 11, 2014.
Todd was a quiet and gentle soul who loved the outdoors, hunting, and fishing. He had an awesome sense of humor and to this day, his family still chuckle at his wit. Many who knew Todd have shared sentiments and stories of their times together through school, work, and growing up. Many speak of his kindness and generosity. Todd has continued his kindness through the gift of life by becoming an organ donor.
