Keith Edgar Todd
November 26, 1945 - February 18, 2023

Keith Edgar Todd, 77, of Zephyrhills, Florida and Brooks, Maine passed away on Saturday February 18, 2023. He was born in Brooks, Maine on November 26, 1945. Keith graduated from Morse Memorial High School in Brooks in 1964. He was the valedictorian of his class. He graduated from the University of Maine in Orono with a BS in Business Administration.

In the summer of 1972 he worked as a short order cook at Wasson’s A & W in Augusta and met the love of his life who worked there as a carhop. The rest is history! He also worked for Hudson Pulp & Paper/Statler Tissue. His career was primarily in finance. He held several positions with the State of Maine and retired as the State Budget Officer for the State of Maine
in 2004.

Keith and Sharon then became snowbirds and moved from Belgrade, Maine to Zephyrhills for the winters. Summers have been spent at their camp on Randall Pond in Brooks. Keith’s passion in life was to play golf. He played nearly every day after retirement. He was a member of the Betmar Golf Club in Zephyrhills and Countryview Golf Club in Brooks. He cherished the literally
hundreds of golfers he got to know on the golf course, especially those who shared the same passion. He was extremely proud of the five hole- in-ones he had. He also enjoyed playing bridge, fishing for white perch (he made a great fish chowdah!) and spending time with his family and friends. Keith is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Sharon Lord Todd; his daughter and son-in-law, Kristin Marie and Brian Bell of Frisco, Texas and their children, Jenna and Kayla Bell; his son and daughter-in-law, Kevin Michael and Krista Todd of Bangor, Maine and their children, Natalie, Lena and Brendan Todd. Also surviving are his nieces and nephews Julie Hood, Jeffrey Todd, Jennifer Stephens, Joella Bailey and James Todd. Keith was predeceased by his parents, Fred James and Vellora (Trueworthy) Todd, his brother, Linton Fred Todd, as well as his in-laws Roger “Buckie” and Janet Lord. Keith was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend
who never met a stranger. He will be greatly missed. He is now in Heaven hitting that little white ball around.

Our family wishes to thank the hundreds of friends who have reached out to us the last few weeks. Your love and support mean the world to us.
There are no services scheduled at this time. Private family services may be held in the spring/summer.

    God bless the entire Todd family. You are in our hearts. We always enjoyed our fun get togethers and all the laughter, fun times and golf outings. Miss you Keith.

    Todd is already missed by so many in his Betmar Community…. He organized a Thursday Golf Group that visited many surrounding Gold Courses. He maintained handicaps for over 100 golfers and arranged fair teams. He was so patient in dealing with those 100 egos who all had their own ideas….
    So many had the utmost respect for him…….I recall first meeting him a few years ago and I made the mistake of calling him “Todd”. He made it crystal clear that his name was Keith, I never forgot it……”Keith” I am sure your putting up there is so much better now?…..We miss you.

    I met Keith in 2019 at Betmar Golf Club – enjoyed the winters playing Skins golf. I will miss the Todd Father, “it’s handy” and the 1/2 bird. Rest in peace my friend.

    Keith was a one of a kind. He will be missed by all that knew him. If you were lucky enough to be on his “ good” side he would find a way to subtly insult you and you would laugh. Rest in peace my fairway friend until we meet again

    I will remember Keith as a good man and a good friend. He was a take charge guy that was always ready to get it done no matter the work involved. He was one of my favorites to have in foursome on the golf course or to sit down and have a beer with. I think of him and miss him every time I go by the Maine monument on our golf course.

    Keith would pull up to my front porch maybe 3 or 4 times a week with favorite beverage in hand.. The best 30 minutes of my day. And as he left, he always gave me a high three…. I so miss him

    Keith was the best Golf Board Treasurer Betmar ever had! He also had many other attributes! When we moved from Betmar we still kept in touch. Ray would ask if he could play on a Thursday with the Ball Buster, Keith as said there is always room for you! We are sure he is making room for us to play at that great golf course in Heaven! RIP our dear friend Keith!!

    My condolences to Keith’s family on the loss of Keith. I knew Keith through the Betmar Golf Busters Thursday group which I played with for several years until Covid. I enjoyed playing with Keith & know that he must have spent time away from family organizing the group every Thursday. God Bless you Keith & your Family.

    First of all, we miss Keith – plain and simple. Many years ago ( early 2000’s) when I met Keith, he was clearly a solid” D” golfer aka a high handicapper. He had a slice off a tee that could never be called a subtle fade but somehow he had some control and was consistent . (hilarious)The rest of his was
    suspect at that time, hence, unfavorable scores. However, over the years he found the secret for his game and became an “A” player . Amazing. It was at this time when I anointed him as the Most Improved Player (MIP) in Betmar golf history. When I said that he would just laugh. As they say “he came a long way baby”. I liked Keith’s style of communication with friends and fellow golfers. I always enjoyed his jokes. Funny stuff. I shall never forget Keith Todd.
