Todd Michael Panasuk was born December 1, 1964, in Williston, North Dakota to Irene (Torgerson) and George Panasuk. Todd spent his childhood on the farm and ranch north of Bainville, Montana. After graduating from Bainville High School, Todd went on to college in Bozeman, Montana, graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering. He then went to work for Boeing as a tool designer and outside support for members in Washington State and California.
In 1991, Todd met the love of his life, Brinda Iverson. On July 10, 1993, they were united in marriage in Enumclaw, Washington, and in 1994 they welcomed their son Luke into the world. In 1995 they moved back to Bainville to work on the family farm and ranch. Although he loved both, he preferred ranching over farming. He served on the Rural and Bainville Fire Departments. In 2012 (Luke's senior year), he was the high school golf coach.
To know Todd was to love him. He always had a joke to tell and a smile on his face. You could pick out his laugh in any crowd. He was so proud of his family, all you had to do was look at his face when they were together to see they meant the world to him. He met many friends over the years through his many passions. If he wasn't chasing a cow or in the field, you could find him playing a hand at pinochle, roping, riding his Harley, playing golf, or basking in the Arizona heat in the winter. Besides ranching, his greatest passion of all was roping. He won many championships, winning many saddles and buckles over the years and competing in the World Series of Team Roping in Las Vegas, Nevada. But his greatest accomplishment of all was the many wonderful lifelong friends he met along the way.
Todd is survived by his wife Brinda and son Luke, both of Bainville, Montana; his siblings Dana Panasuk (Brenna) of Williston, ND, Miles Panasuk of Bainville, MT, Mary Peed (Greg) of Oregon, Mark Panasuk (Jan) of Douglas, WY, and Amybeth Miller of New Mexico; and several nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents George and Irene Panasuk; brother Scot Panasuk; and sister-in-law Cyndi Panasuk.
