Todd was born September 18, 1968, in Hastings, NE to John I. and Bonnie J. (Johnson) Van Skiver. He was a lifelong Hastings resident, graduating from Hastings High School in 1987 and then going on to earn his Bachelor’s degree in business from Hastings College. Todd then began his career in retail management with Johnson Cash-way Lumber Company before moving into real estate investment and property management.


Todd was most comfortable on a court or field, playing both basketball and baseball in high school and college. He passed his love of sports to his sons by coaching their teams and attending their games. He was also an active coach for many years in the Mike Trader basketball camps. He was blessed to have good friends and enjoyed tailgating and going to Husker games. In recent years, Todd was able to spend more time on his passion for fishing. His boys will cherish memories of fishing and camping trips to Lovewell, KS. He could also be found many summer weekends on his boat at Lake McConaughy. He will be missed by his family and friends.


Todd was preceded in death by his father.
