Obituary of Todd Andrew Morgan
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Todd Andrew Morgan, age 66 of Andover, Minnesota, on February 5, 2023. Todd contracted COVID in November of 2021 and required an 11-month hospitalization. He finally returned home to start the long process of rehabilitation and was making progress when his health suddenly deteriorated as a result of a bacterial infection. His family made the tremendously difficult decision to stop life support, and his passing was rapid and peaceful.
Todd was born in Chicago January 10, 1957 to James and Carol (Torson) Slowinski. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Amy (Moscinski), his daughters, Kara (Max), and Jill, his mother, Carol, of Willowbrook IL, his sister, Kim (Tony), of Western Springs IL, his mother-in-law, Claudine Moscinski, of Winfield IL, nephews and nieces, in-laws, and many cherished close friends. He was predeceased by his father, James, and his grandparents, Joseph, Bernice, Donald, and Elizabeth, and several aunts and uncles and friends.
Todd was a passionate man and a man of simple pleasures. Nothing was more important in his life than his family and good friends. You wouldn’t find a prouder dad when he talked about his daughters. He loved spending time outside, whether doing yardwork or tending the fire in the firepit. He loved time on the pontoon at the cabin with Amy and anyone who wanted to join them. He loved his Labs and especially two that were dearest to him, Trevor and Griff, his “big goofs”, as he called them. He loved hockey (Chicago Blackhawks and the Minnesota Wild) and baseball (Chicago Cubs, whose World Series win overjoyed him), fishing and golf. He loved exploring breweries with family and friends. He loved music, especially Neil Young, Van Morrison, and Jackson Browne. His second date with his wife, Amy, was at senior prom where the theme was “Only The Beginning”. The lyrics fit their marriage well– “When I’m with you, it doesn’t matter where we are or what we’re doing. I’m with you, that’s all that matters.” Todd was the embodiment of love, loyalty, and a strong work ethic. He will be always loved, forever missed, and never forgotten.
At his request, there will be no funeral service, but instead there will be a BBQ and beer party to celebrate him and honor his memory at a later date. In lieu of flowers, he would have liked donations to the two organizations that sheltered his canine buddies, Trevor and Griff, until they joined us: calhouncountyanimalcenter.org/donations.html and northwoodshs.org. Finally, special thanks to the staff at M Health Fairview, University of Minnesota Medical Center, East Bank. They worked the hardest to give Todd a chance. Their efforts and the kindness they showed Todd and his family will never be forgotten.
