Todd James O’Harrow, 51, of Washington Park, Illinois, born Wednesday, March 9, 1966, in Belleville, IL, died Monday, August 28, 2017 at Touchette Regional Hospital in Centreville, Illinois.

Family was very important to Todd. He had countless nieces and nephew who adored him. Always the big brother, he walked two of his sisters down the isle on their wedding day. His two great loves in life were his race cars and his dogs. He spent many hours under the hood of a car getting ready for the next quarter mile race and was always taking in homeless dog in need. Not having much himself, he was always helping others. Now, with his passing and thru his request to donate tissue organs, he will continue helping others. Todd will always be remembered for his love for his family, his caring nature and his ability to fill a room with laughter.
