Obituary of John "Jack" Leonard Todman
Conway, SC - Formerly of Pine Island, NY
Jack Todman, a former area-resident passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, December 31, 2020 surrounded by his beloved family. He was 70 years old. The son of the late John and Loretta Rogowski Todman, Jack was born on December 2, 1950 in Warwick, NY.
Jack attended and graduated from the Warwick Valley High School and SUNY Orange County Community College. A businessman and entrepreneur, Jack owned and operated many small businesses in both Pine Island and Warwick. Jack was well-known for his luncheonette; The Toadstool Lunch & Deli in Pine Island which he operated for over 10 years. He went on to establish Crown Vicky Limousine Service & Motorhome Rental which started with just 1 vehicle and grew to a 6-7 car fleet, serving nearly 1,400 customers in Warwick. The business was sold in July 2001 as Jack’s love for the ocean and walking on the beach drew him to South Carolina for retirement. After their move to the Carolina’s, Jack and his wife Vicky founded Corner Pocket Traders, making homemade crafts from old barn wood, pallet boards and lots of vintage items repurposing them into signs & crafts to sell at street fairs and different venues.
Jack enjoyed listening to music of all genres, especially rock-n-roll. Some of his favorites included the Rolling Stones and Grateful Dead bands. He loved spending time with his family and friends cooking up fancy meals, especially around the holidays and family gatherings. Jack also had a special love for his Springer Spaniels, Oreo and Cookie.
Survivors include his wife; Vicky, at home, two sons; Justin Todman of Clayton, NC and Kiel Todman and his spouse Laura of St. Petersburg, FL, as well as their son Nolan-Jack Drea Todman, Jack’s only grandson.
Jack is further survived by his two brothers; Donald Todman and his spouse Pam of Bristol, CT, Timothy Todman and his spouse Bonnie of Pine Island, NY, one aunt, Ciocia Agnes Osczepinski, of Pine Island, NY, as well as many nieces and nephews.
