Todd was a loving and devoted father, extraordinary grandfather, and the best of brother, uncle, and friend one could have. He brought joy and laughter to every gathering, always being the life of the party. Todd's vibrant personality and zest for life were contagious, leaving a lasting impression on all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

In his professional life, Todd dedicated himself to the roofing industry. He spent his entire career as a roofer, working for reputable companies such as Twin City Roofing, Professional Contractors Inc, Dakota Coating & Roofing, and others along the way.

Outside of work, Todd had a variety of hobbies that brought him immense joy. He loved camping, fishing, and spending time with his grandchildren, creating cherished memories that will be forever treasured. Todd also had a fascination with RC cars, enjoyed tasing bugs (a unique pastime and yes you read that right), and had a passion for shooting his guns.

Todd will be deeply missed by his daughters, Karlee (Jason) Friesz, Tia Friesz, and Haley Friesz, all of Mandan, ND, as well as his beloved grandchildren, Aspen Friesz, Ezra Fontanilla, Ayla Brown, Jase Brown, and Dalton DeGroat, all of Mandan, ND. He is also survived by his brother, Rodney Friesz, aunt, Putt Oster, cousin, Troy Shepherd, close friends, Kelle O'Brien, Dustin Patzner, Russel Ressler, Ted Leingang, Dennis Muller (Pinhead), cousins, Debbie and Scott Oster, his favorite niece, Ashley (Dustin) Eastgate, special nephew, Cody Patzner, and many other loved family members, too numerous to name.

Todd was preceded in death by his Mother, Linda (Oster) Friesz, Father Tom Friesz, Aunt Sherry Oster, Uncle Duane Oster, Uncle Tim Oster, Aunt and Uncle Judith (Ron) Oster, Cousin Monte Heck, and many more.
