Todd Everett Canady

August 27, 1965 — May 17, 2020

Todd Everett Canady, 54, passed suddenly on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

A Savannah native raised on Wilmington Island, he married and raised two girls with his wife Alethia within the rural arms of Metter before finding himself at home in Richmond Hill for the last 14 years. In that time, he completed part of his technical training as a draftsman yet rose above and beyond in his field to be the project manager of Architecture 101. Todd was a tried and true member of the building community known for his integrity and attention to detail going beyond what was asked as he did with all things in life.

Todd E. Canady also known as “Todd-EE-Pooh,” “T.C.” or “Bond, James Bond.” was a gruff man however he never met a person he couldn’t make smile with some quip about ordering a “double anchovy pepperoni pizza” or “being old as dirt and twice as ugly” yet still earning “another day another dollar in paradise.” He was loved by many for his comical need to be obsessively on time and desire to force-feed all who came into his house so they felt at home, “we have one house rule if it’s in the kitchen its free game just don’t touch my beer.” He was opinionated in all things but discussed everything except politics with a willingness to listen to another’s point of view and contemplate their vantage. A flight enthusiast, sci-fi aficionado, car nerd, and longbow archer, Todd was a man of passion in all that he did with his love of creation above all things. He was a craftsman at heart who gave meticulous care to all that he formed be it dog beds or relationships. He was always very attentive and cared for so many. He didn’t just call to ask you a question, he called to see how the whole family was doing before he said what was on his mind. Todd truly was an amazing soul.

He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Alethia R. Morris Canady (50); their two daughters, Marena R. Canady (26) and Rachel A. Canady (23); and his youngest brother, Trey E. Canady. Todd gained his wings and joined his older brother, Troy E. Canady; and parents, Jake E. Canady and Peggie J. Colbert Canady at the pearly white gates. He profoundly touched the lives of all he came in contact with and will be sorely missed.

Even though we cannot gather now to celebrate Todd Canady's life rest assured we will, he would want that. Until that time, if you could, on Saturday evening, May 23, raise a glass and give a toast to him wherever you are.
