Devon Montell Todd
October 4, 1966 - December 22, 2022
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!!!
Devon is preceded in death by his father, Norman H. Todd, Sr. He is survived by his loving wife, Ardie Lou Frances (Walker) Todd; mother, Betty A. 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.
A visitation for family and friends will be held from 9 am until 11 am on Friday, December 30, 2022, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 275 E. Main Street, Middletown, DE, where a funeral service will begin at 11 am. Interment will follow in Gracelawn Memorial Park, 2220 N. Dupont Highway, New Castle, DE.

Due to the amount of attendees, the funeral service will be delayed for video streaming at least one hour.

My deepest sympathy and condolences to the Todd family. I hope you can find some peace and comfort in the wonderful memories you’ve had with him that will live on. It’s never easy losing such an amazing soul that has brought everyone so much happiness. He was such a bright ray of sunshine and his smile lit up any room. To know Devon was to love him. It was such a privilege and honor to call him one of my closest friends. There are many people that we meet in our lives,
but only a very few will make a lasting impression on our minds and hearts. It is these rare people that we will think of often and who will always remain important to us, even long after they are gone.
My sincere condolences to Ardie and the family. Devon always had an upbeat smiling way about him whenever I had occasion to interact with him. Rest easy, Devon.
