Todd R. Jutz was born Sept. 9, 1968, in Little Falls, to Joseph and Juanita (Krych) Jutz. Todd graduated from Little Falls Community High School and married Carol Young in 1992. In 1993, he became the proud daddy to Samantha Lee, the light of his life. His marriage later dissolved. After managing the family business, Bemidji Bus Line for about 10 years, Todd enjoyed spending time with Samantha and in the company of friends and family. He loved everything about the outdoors, from fishing and hunting, to gardening and camping. Todd was a huge sports fan and could often be found on a Sunday afternoon howling at the TV with the Vikings game on. Todd was well-known for his big smile and hearty laugh and was always someone that would go out of his way to lend a hand to anyone who needed it.
