Howard was the third child born to Thomas Howard Todd and Nannie Weber Todd. The family moved to Arkansas and settled near Arkadelphia. There he met and married Mattie Louis Brewer. They were married for more than 55 years when he passed away. Their five children were Amy Sue Todd Nowlin, Opal Naomi Todd Brashier, Howard Edward Todd, Tommy Louis Todd, and Jackie Eugene Todd. Opal died at an early age and preceded him in death. He was a loving father, brother, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He always regretted that he was unable to serve his country because he was too young for the First World War and too old for the second. But he saw all three of his sons enter the military service and two of them to retire from the military. He had a most wonderful and dry sense of humor that always kept the family amused, and is still the subject of many conversations when two or more are gathered. Without an education or a skill he always had to work hard to provide a living for his family. His struggle to give his children something better than than he had led him from the log woods of Arkansas to the steel mills of Milwaukee. When the children were grown and he could retire it was back to his beloved Arkansas where he could be closer to the family he had remaining. He was never so happy as when surrounded by his children and their children.
