We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us. CHARLES BUKOWSKI

Todd Bailey lived well and lived large. He had an enviable passion for life, an intensity that alternately seared and inspired us. In death, he has reunited us. He brightened many rooms and will be missed enormously.

When I think of him today, I remember:

He loved wretched music. Among his heroes were Joe Strummer and some guy from "Social Distortion"

When we met he drove a Jeep with a personalized plate that read: "PUNKROC".

He shamelessly flirted with (all) female co-workers just to see them smile, and they loved that about him.

Every month or so he would forward virtually everything in his email inbox to his friends.

I often described him as being "wrapped pretty tight" and if you ever met him, you know that fit him perfectly.

I'll miss him forever...
