Devon Montell Todd, lovingly known as “Big Head”, age 56, of Middletown, DE, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, December 22, 2022.
Born in Wilmington, DE on October 4, 1966, he was a son of Betty (Blackston) Todd and the late Norman H. Todd, Sr. Devon attended Broadmeadow Elementary School, Louis L. Redding Middle School and graduated from Middletown High School in 1985.
On June 28, 1991, Devon and Ardie were joined in Holy Matrimony in Elkton, MD. For 31 blissful years, they enjoyed traveling, playing spades, and hosting family gatherings.
For 33 faithful years, Devon had the pleasure of working for W.L. Gore & Associates in Newark, DE. His sociable personality proved to be perfect with him working in guest services at the Barksdale Conference Center. He easily formed an abundance of friendships that lasted a lifetime. With much hesitation, after undergoing two brain surgeries he reluctantly retired August 1, 2022.
Spending time with family was a priority! Devon loved to tantalize and harass his nieces and nephews. Having fun with friends during lunch dates and happy hours at various restaurants brought him happiness. Oh yes! Let’s not forget he was a fan of those E – A – G – L – E – S!!!

Todd; 3 sisters, Charmaine Coates, Norma Todd (Jay), Carmen Frazier (Charles); 2 brothers, Unitas Todd, Sr. (Ruth), Norman Todd, Jr. (Kim); and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.
