Todd Wuergler was everybody’s friend and was a joy to be around. He has gone on before us, and much too soon. His infectious laugh and happy personality will be greatly missed and you could not be around him for very long before you felt as if you had been his lifelong buddy. He loved going fast and it didn’t matter if it was a steep and difficult black diamond ski run or flat out with the throttle wide open on his favorite sportbike. He was happiest when he was doing fun things outdoors and his love of the open road will be a tender memory for all of us who cared for him so dearly.
He returned to his Father in Heaven the day before Father’s Day, Saturday, June 14th in a fatal accident negotiating a tight turn on State Road 12 between Escalante and Boulder Utah while riding with his good friends who shared his love of having the wind in their face.
He is survived by his sweet wife of 26 years, Carolina, his three loving children Brooke Bills (Devin), Samantha and Jake, along with his parents, Sherry and Mike Wuergler, Sisters Debbie and Leah and Brothers Michael and Mark as well as Nephews and Nieces, Christopher and Sidney Howard and Max Danhauer. Because he lived in Utah Valley since 1978, he also leaves a large number of dear friends and colleagues. He certainly affected all those he touched.
Todd was an excellent respiratory therapist, wood worker, electrician, master chef with a grill and a genius with engines. There is nothing he couldn’t build. As a caring healthcare professional we are told that he was especially tender to those under his care who were, literally, breathing their last breath. Because he lived throughout his life in great physical pain himself, he understood the peace and change someone experiences when passing from this life into the next.
Todd, you are greatly loved and will be tenderly remembered. We love you.
