Todd Koehler,  born  July  28th, 1965  was  taken  into  Heaven
holding his loving wife Sue Strong Koehler on March 3rd,  2020.
He  was  survived  by  his  parents  Ken and Beverly Koehler  of
Sheboygan    Wisconsin,    loving    sister   Trisha   Gorman   of
Cookeville,  Tn,  loving  brother  Tim  Koehler  and  wife   Nancy
Koehler   of   Cookeville,   Tn,  loving  sister  Teri  Zarneke  and
husband  Rick  Zarneke  of  Dallas  GA,  loving   brother   Jason
Koehler and wife Carrie Koehler of Madison, Indiana and  many
nieces and nephews, uncles and aunts, relatives and friends.  

Todd  was  a  valued  employee  of  Integral Automations for 22
years  and  Metcom  Company for 13 years.   Todd although he
did not have  any  children, he  loved  each  of  his  nieces  and
nephews  as  his  own.  He  enjoyed  the  outdoors  while hiking,
biking,  repelling,  hunting,  boating  and  fishing  on  Center Hill
Lake, in addition to photographing all of God’s creation while he
enjoyed it.

In his spare time he was passionate about time  spent  with  guy
friends  nicknamed,  Bones,  Dingleberry,  Thrasher,  Rat    and
Cobble, while  they  listened  to  rock music, cooked/barbecued,
restored vintage automobiles.  Todd was also passionate about
his  collection  of  firearms  and  teaching others how to respect
them.  

We   as   a   family   are   reminded   through   Todd  and  Sue’s
departure from this earth into Heaven, what a  tornado  actually
does to life and structure.  We  see  the destruction to buildings
and never realize what it does  to  those  unprotected  from  the
debris.  Todd and Sue’s life together was firmly grounded in the
foundation
 of  our  Lord.  We  pray  as  a  family that Todd and
Sue
’s  life  continues to remind us daily to know God before  we
need him rather than need him and not know him.  

Todd adored not only his parents, family, close friends but  also
his community.  We would like to thank not  only  Cookeville  but
the  entire  country  for the outreach and outpour of continuous
prayers,  compassion,  concern,   and   retrieval   of   numerous
photos  and  belongings.   Although everything Todd worked so
hard  at  obtaining in material form was destroyed, we know that
Todd’s true love and happiness was found within his  heart  and
also  in  the  love  he  shared  with his best friend and wife Sue.  
Sometimes  life  just  doesn’t  make  sense.  Bad things happen
to  good  people  and  we  all  wonder  why.  But  even  in those
moments, some  things  remain  true-God loves you.  He  has  a
plan  for your life, you are loved, you are never alone and even
the darkest night must lead to dawn.

Joint memorial services will be held at 6 P.M. on Sunday, March
8,  2020,  at  the  River  Community  Church, 1200  Miracle Rd.,
Cookeville, TN. The family will receive friends on Sunday at  the
church from 3 P.M. – 6 P.M.
