Todd C. Tatro, of Antigo, died on November 15, 2023 at his home under the care of his family and LeRoyer Hospice. He was 61 years old. He was born on July 4, 1962 in Antigo, a son of LeRoy "Shorty" and Delores (Markgraf) Tatro.
He was a graduate of Antigo High School, class of 1980. Todd grew up working in the family business from a young teen and eventually took it over under Todd Tatro Excavation, LLC. When Todd dug a basement, you never had to measure twice. He also worked for the City of Antigo in the street and sign department and later as a grader operator. He loved the comradery of his customers and co-workers. They meant the world to him. Todd was a member of the Antigo Bow Club and shot trap with the Phlox Sportsman Club.
Todd followed in Shorty's footsteps and shared a passion for hunting, fishing, and cooking game. He was a woodsman with a keen eye for putting up deer stands in the perfect tree that allowed him to spot a deer before his fellow hunters. His skills with fishing were just as great as he could outfish anyone. Many of his fishing holes were kept a secret so there would always be plenty of fish to catch and feed to his family. He enjoyed spending time with his children passing these skills onto them so they could continue the tradition of hunting and fishing at the family cabin. Todd was an amazing man who will be remembered dearly by everyone for his good heart.
Survivors include three sons, Cortland Tatro of Brandon, FL, Nicholas Tatro of Weston, and Trey Tatro of Mayfield, KY; a daughter, Sophia "Fifi" Tatro of Mayfield, KY; four sisters, Victoria (Robert) Prelipp of Birnamwood, Tina Tatro of Antigo, Lea Tatro of Birnamwood, and Alaina (David) Reynolds of Tomahawk; two brothers, Scott (Ann) Tatro and Cal Tatro both of Antigo; many nieces and nephews; and two ex-wives, Michelle Arrowood of Mayfield, KY and Terrilynn (Bill) Thom of Gleason.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Raymond, John and Robert Tatro.
