Todd Bateman Wilhelm passed away Friday Sept 3, 2021, in Queen Creek, AZ. Todd was born to LaVerl and Linda Gore Wilhelm on April 13, 1979, in Springerville, AZ. Todd was raised in St. Johns, AZ and spent many hours working on the ranch. After serving a full-time mission in Nashville, Tennessee, for his church, Todd graduated from ASU with a B.A. in Finance and a graduate degree in Tax and Accounting.
More than anything in life, Todd loved his family and spending time with them. He loved to meander with his wife Maguen and his children, taking the road wherever it led them. Todd loved all the reunions and family trips he took with his siblings, nieces and nephews.
Todd had a big smile and contagious laugh. He laughed at himself and never let the trials in life keep him down. He left a legacy of compassion and friendship. Todd was amazingly resilient. Once he set his mind to something, he never gave up. Todd’s courage to overcome obstacles was founded in his strong testimony of Jesus Christ.
