Erbin Regar Todd Jr.
Erbin Regar Todd Jr., 73, of Nevada, Mo., passed away unexpectedly at his home on Monday, Dec. 28, 2020. Regar was born on Jan. 3, 1947, in Nevada, Mo., to Erbin Regar Todd Sr. and Margaret Agnes Todd.
Regar grew up in Nevada on the family farm. He attended Nevada schools graduating in 1965. After high school, Regar attended Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg, Mo., graduating with an Automotive Engineering Degree in 1970. Regar returned home after college and worked at Crane Plumbing, followed by Fram for a short time before taking over the family farm in 1975.
Regar enjoyed farming with his Dad and son, but his true passion was racing, grandkids, and side by sides. Regar took pride in keeping all things clean and polished, from cars to combines, he wanted them to always look new. He very rarely missed a race, one of the things he talked about daily and truly brought enjoyment to his life. Regar was also a wonderful Grandad! Always welcoming the opportunity to spend time with them. He loved giving them rides around the farm in his RZR.
Survivors include his wife, Denise R. Todd of the home; three children, Erbin R. “Trey” Todd, III (Brandi), Nevada, Sherry Jo Boyer (Chris), Truckee, Calif., and Tara Leigh Long (Tony), Overland Park, Kan.; seven grandkids, Mesa Agnes Todd, Indi Joy Todd, Max Helm Boyer, Lucy Grace Long, Lucas Anthony Long, and newborn twins, Meredith and Miles; two sisters, Margaret Earnest (Jime) Pleasant Hope, Mo., Alice Shupe (Ken), Nevada; one brother, Low Daniel Todd (Eileen); and many nieces and nephews.
