Angerhofer, Todd Eldon Portland, ME: Age 48, formerly of Rochester, NY and Washington, DC, passed on in early January- a beautiful and sensitive spirit who was devoted in service to others. Todd was born in Rochester, NY, where he lived until graduation from Pittsford-Mendon High School in 1986. He graduated from MIT in 1991 on an NROTC Scholarship with a bachelor's degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering.

During his 20-year military career he earned many commendations including Navy/Marine Corps Commendation Medal, Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Meritorious Unit Commendation, National Defense Service Medal, and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal. Upon retiring from the Navy and inspired by his love of the outdoors and the water, Todd made his home in Portland, Maine, where he continued to serve, including with the Maine Region of the American Red Cross, donating thousands of hours helping to enlist and assign roles for new volunteers as well as preparing staff in disaster response. He was also very active in Portland's recovery community.
