The East Bay Family Owned Oak Park Hills Chapel is Saddened by Loss of Partner and Brother, Todd Magleby

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Brad and Mark Magleby of the East Bay’s Oak Park Hills Chapel are grieving the loss their brother and partner, Todd Harold Magleby on October 8, 2011.

Todd passed peacefully away during a sunset at home on the evening of Saturday, October 8th, with his family at his bedside after a courageous two and a half year battle with brain cancer.

Todd was born in Walnut Creek on Christmas Day to Roger and Shirley Magleby. He began attending Oak Park Elementary School in Pleasant Hill in 1971. He also attended Sequoia Junior High in Pleasant Hill, and graduated from Ygnacio Valley High School in Concord in 1984.

Mr. Magleby attended Ricks College, now known as BYU Idaho. From 1986 to 1988, he served as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Arkansas, Little Rock Mission.

Todd graduated from San Francisco College of Mortuary Science in 1989. As co-owner, with his brothers, of Oak Park Hills Chapel Funeral Home in Walnut Creek, he assisted thousands of grieving families.

Todd loved his children, serving others through Jesus Christ, music, food and sports. He was a fan of the 49ers, San Jose Sharks, Golden State Warriors, and, most particularly, the San Francisco Giants. He was in the LA Dodger Stadium for the pivotal “Boomerang” game. He also enjoyed Benicia Recreation Hammer Time volleyball, and any team his children played on.

Todd is survived by his children, Kyrsten and Mitchell, of Benicia; his mother, Shirley of Walnut Creek; brothers, Brad (Robin) of Pleasant Hill and Mark (Tracie) of Fairfield; sisters Laurie (Matthew) Magleby Mackey of Fairfield and Jeanette (James) Magleby Urry of Salt Lake City, Utah; and many nieces, nephews and other extended family members. He was predeceased by his father, Roger, in 1983.
