Todd Michael Aldrich
STATESBORO, Ga. -- Todd Michael Aldrich, age 55, died Tuesday, December 17, 2019. A lifelong resident of Statesboro, Todd was born on September 16, 1964.
    Todd was a graduate of Georgia Southern University and worked at his alma mater as director of IT Business Services. Over the course of his career, Todd was the business manager for Tim Durden Construction, a partner in Partner’s Antiques and employed with Mike and Deborah Hatten for many years.

    Todd was an avid fan of Georgia Southern University football and enjoyed attending and traveling to games and cheering on the Eagles. He also enjoyed spending time on the Ogeechee River and hosting low-country boils, fish fries and oyster roasts. Todd was the consummate host and a classic Southern gentleman.
