MAYTHER, Todd J. May 4, 1961 - January 28, 2013 Dr. Todd J Mayther, 51, passed away peacefully surrounded by family after a nearly six year battle with cancer on January 28th, 2013 at the Community Home and Hospice Center, Longview, WA.

Preceded in death by his grandparents, two uncles and a cousin. He served four years in the U.S. Army as a combat engineer. He worked at the Crisis Residential Center in Spokane before working as a counselor at Oroville Elementary School in Oroville, WA. He spent the last 15 years working as a Counselor at Coweeman Middle School in Kelso, WA. He was a great teacher, coach, soldier, fishing buddy, friend, son, brother, uncle, husband, and father. But above all he was a great man. All who met him came away changed in the most profound of ways, and all who knew him are still filled with a distinct pride and honor from simply knowing such a good person. He loved his family dearly and treated all with dignity and respect. A memorial service will be held for Todd at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Longview on February 16th, at 2:00pm.
