Todd was a talented singer. He was a member of the Timpanogos High School Show & Chamber choir and sang in the BYU Men's Chorus. He loved to sing, play the guitar, and write. He loved the outdoors and taking photographs of beautiful scenery.
For many years Todd dealt with emotional pain that we could not understand. In spite of this, he was sensitive and kind and had many friends. We know he has found peace and that we will see him again. We all loved him very much and will miss him deeply. We will always remember his laughter, twinkling blue eyes, big dimpled smile and long, loving hugs.
Todd is survived by his parents, Michael and Laurie Ransom of Orem, his siblings James Ransom (Celeste) of New York City, Melissa Gonzalez (Israel) of Lehi, Tyler Ransom (Nichole) of Durham, North Carolina, and Jessica Ransom of Orem. He is also survived by his grandparents, William and Michele Wilson of Kailua, Hawaii and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Todd had a special bond with the Jacquez family of East Carbon, Utah and considered them his second family.
